We need to cop on

I’m feeling ashamed of us Irish. I’ve just come back from Maastricht in The Netherlands where I attended one of eight concerts given in the city centre by Andre Rieu over a period of two weeks.

There is major disruption to traffic and even business, but the local people have taken the whole thing to their hearts.

It’s Andre here and Andre there but always with approval. They know he’s a native son but also that he brings huge money to their city. Squares are cut off but no complaints. Are the people living near Croker so selfish as to try to spoil things for not just a city but the whole country. Cop on guys!
