I notice at this time of year an upticking in those exhorting me to abrogate my economic faculties and buy Irish goods and services. When I looked into it I can see the current government is a supporter:
Government minister supports the Guaranteed Irish initiative
The Irish Times - Sat, Sep 10, 2011 - Is Guaranteed Irish still a good idea?
FOR THE FIRST time in more than 20 years a senior Minister showed up at a press conference organised by the Guaranteed Irish organisation earlier this week. His presence was a sign of the times.
However it is asking to buy goods/services on the basis of nationality - surely that is a borderline/racist attitude ?
