Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose


Crossing the junction of St Stephen's Green and Merrion Row this morning, listening to Moaning Ireland (RTE Radio 1). Ahead of me at the junction, three Loretto schoolgirls were in earnest conversation and appeared to be rehearsing some highly choreographed dance routine. On the radio, an equally earnest UCD Modern History Professor discussed the recently catalogued collection of Eamonn De Valera's personal papers now accessible to the general public & historians alike.

I was amused to think that comely maiden might still be dancing at the cross roads after all these years.
