we are sweltering in 35 degrees in Austria and have to say the reaction to the G8 summit in Ireland is very positive. It is getting very wide coverage on T.V and as soon as we say we are Irish people are remarking on the summit. That is an unfortunate clip from ABC. There is very positive reaction to anything Irish here. Sometimes when we are at home we forget about the worldwide impact these meeting have. There was half an hour on prime time T.V today about an ice cram maker in Enniskillen making various ice creamflavours for each world leader. We might treat this at trite but millions of people are seeing our country and making an impression of the country. It isn't only Michelle Obama who has lunch in Finnegans. Certain very famous locals eat there every day!!!!

Have to agree with you Rocker, here in the USA it is gettting very positive reports on the media (except that somewhat tongue in cheek ABC news item). Most of the coverage is of the Irish visit by Michelle to Glendalough and Dalkey and not so much of the actual summit. The country looked great today bathed in sunshine and the covera ge was really positive. Everyone we meet here and we have been here six or seven times, tells us they are Irish or want to be Irish. There is a huge Irish community here in Tenessee and Irish music can be heard in pubs and bars all over. I am proud to travel as an Irishman and not afraid to proclaim my nationality, which I believe cannot be said for every nationality.

Thank you to our Austrian and American reporters (we have people "on the ground" everywhere) - any word from our Australian, UK or Canadian reporters on the G8 Summit?

Great find Rocker though text seems to be a poorly completed Optical Character Recognition (OCR) exercise on the original work which makes for lots of gaps and dodgy layout. Here's an alternative link - to the original book -

Another morning where I am looking through genealogical sites and of course, if anything local crops up I get really interested. Someone is looking for details of the practice and where the files went for a Solicitor Adeline Butler who used to have a practice in Castle Street Dalkey up to the late 1960's. Does anyone remember that? and do they know who took over the files??.

I think the Law Society should know where the files went.
