About the Book
The Celtic Tiger Years
From J.F. Kennedy's speech to the Irish Oireachtas (Parliament) and subsequently mirrored in Berti Ahern's speech to the Houses of Parliament in Great Britain:
A great Irish poet once wrote: "I believe profoundly . . . in the future of Ireland . . . that this is an isle of destiny, that destiny will be glorious . . . and that when our hour is come....we will have something to give to the world." My friends: Ireland's hour has come. You have something to give to the world--and that is a future of peace with freedom.
