The Americans push their tourist attractions shamelessly. Flashy Las Vegas, Childish Disneyland, Big holes in the ground, and wonderful Graceland.
The Brits their ancient blood curdling history, castles,Palaces, Royalty and landed gentry country estates.
Our beautiful green buses, telephone and post office boxes were seen here as too Oirish.
That's what a great many tourist come to see.
Are we the only country attempting to hide our marvellous history and all the stuff that made us so lovable to tourists? Time to rethink outmoded 'modern' ideas and make Ireland a magnet.
Right so, no more Irish Times models, most of them no good, at all, at all.
