It’s true what they say about Mammon – it talks, and we serve it well. – Yours, etc, Sir, – Now that Britain has voted to leave the EU because it wants control of its affairs without outside interference, should it also leave the Commonwealth? – Yours, etc, Sir, – I hope that the British vote to leave will not mean that the EU will want Turkey to be part of the EU either as a replacement or even a new member.

The Irish people of the Late Middle Ages were active as traders on the European continent. [59] They were distinguished from the English (who only used their own language or French) in that they only used Latin abroad—a language "spoken by all educated people throughout Gaeldom". [60] According to the writer Seumas MacManus, the explorer Christopher Columbus visited Ireland to gather information about the lands to the west, [15] a number of Irish names are recorded on Columbus' crew roster preserved in the archives of Madrid and it was an Irishman named Patrick Maguire who was the first to set foot in the Americas in 1492; [15] however, according to Morison and Miss Gould, who made a detailed study of the crew list of 1492, no Irish or English sailors were involved in the voyage. [61] An English report of 1515 states that the Irish people were divided into over sixty Gaelic lordships and thirty Anglo-Irish lordships. [45] The English term for these lordships was "nation" or "country". [45] The Irish term "oireacht" referred to both the territory and the people ruled by the lord. [45] Literally, it meant an "assembly", where the Brehons would hold their courts upon hills to arbitrate the matters of the lordship. [45] Indeed, the Tudor lawyer John Davies described the Irish people with respect to their laws: There is no people under the sun that doth love equal and indifferent (impartial) justice better than the Irish, or will rest better satisfied with the execution thereof, although it be against themselves, as they may have the protection and benefit of the law upon which just cause they do desire it. [62] Another English commentator records that the assemblies were attended by "all the scum of the country"—the labouring population as well as the landowners. [45] While the distinction between "free" and "unfree" elements of the Irish people was unreal in legal terms, it was a social and economic reality. [45] Social mobility was usually downwards, due to social and economic pressures. [45] The ruling clan's "expansion from the top downwards" was constantly displacing commoners and forcing them into the margins of society. [45] As a clan-based society, genealogy was all important. [45] Ireland 'was justly styled a "Nation of Annalists"'. [63] The various branches of Irish learning—including law, poetry, history and genealogy, and medicine—were associated with hereditary learned families. [64] The poetic families included the Uí Dhálaigh (Daly) and the MacGrath. [45] Irish physicians, such as the O'Briens in Munster or the MacCailim Mor in the Western Isles, were renowned in the courts of England, Spain, Portugal and the Low Countries. [62] Learning was not exclusive to the hereditary learned families, however; one such example is Cathal Mac Manus, the 15th century diocesan priest who wrote the Annals of Ulster. [64] Other learned families included the Mic Aodhagáin and Clann Fhir Bhisigh. [64] It was this latter family which produced Dubhaltach Mac Fhirbhisigh, the 17th century genealogist and compiler of the Leabhar na nGenealach. (see also Irish medical families ).

All the efforts of their chieftains could not bring them together again. They would seek a land that was sufficiently far away to be safe, was fertile, and which was well known to the Phoenician mariners of the eastern Mediterranean, as was Ireland. In her wickedly irreverent book Queen Elizabeth, a Life of the Queen Mother (Viking, 1986), the brilliant writer Penelope Mortimer tells us that the odds are strong that she was born in the backseat of a horse-drawn vehicle going through central London (or parked under a lamppost).

After his series of highly regarded matches, Rocco was contacted by New Japan Pro Wrestling to wrestle a series of matches against Lee/Sayama in Japan. It was increasingly obvious that the Americans were supplanting the military and political capacity of the British to conduct the war and the appointment of Eisenhower to command the D-Day operation confirmed this shift in their relative status.

Try to stay away from Hollywood stars faking Irish accents. I make allowance for the temptation natural to an ingenious and active mind. The Wallabies overturned a 1-0 series to win 2-1 in what would be coach Rod Macqueen’s final Test series as Wallabies coach. Thanks to that same omnipotent power of attraction possessed by wealth and luxury, the art of packing salmon in ice, for the London market, was perfected, thirty or forty years ago; since which time, as was to be expected, the fisheries have risen incalculably in value, the fish have become dear in proportion, and the natives of the countries through which salmon-rivers flow, become accustomed to see them taken and cased up for the great city, by scores and hundreds, without having it in their power to purchase a pound for their table.

But in former times, and while the hills retained their natural clothing of wood, such spots were sheltered by the adjacent trees, and were thus rendered capable of producing crops. Our true-hearted Duke of Athole, and Lord Lauderdale, whose acuteness and powers of thinking and reasoning may, without disparagement, be compared with those of any statesman now living, have set an example not to be forgotten; and we know that the slender proportion of aristocracy, which Scotland was left in possession of at the Union, entertain the same patriotic sentiments.

Both groups spoke mutually intelligible dialects of Albanian, although there were clear economic, religious, and social differences between the two groups. These die-hards coalesced around the leadership of Eamon De Valera. The modes essayed may probably have been successful, in some instances, where the operation has been peculiarly favoured by circumstances; but, in general, the result has been fruitless expense and disappointment. The larch plantations are experimentally found, by the annual casting of their leaves to lend material aid to the encouragement of the fine and more nutritive grasses; while, at the same time, they cause the destruction of the heath, and other coarser productions of vegetation.
