Dublin: It is hard to miss that there is a Notre Dame/Navy football game going on here in Dublin.
There was not an empty seat on the Aer Lingus 109 from New York to Dublin last night as we joined the 35,000 mostly Irish fans who have flown from America in an unprecedented pilgrimage.
I was sixteen years old in the summer of 1969, working my first summer job in an electrical plant about ten miles from my hometown of Drogheda on Ireland’s East Coast.
The night and morning of the moon landing is impressioned on my brain forever. Like 9/11 and the Kennedy assassination I can recall it as vividly as yesterday.
New York is lucky to have in Police Commissioner Ray Kelly a man who inspires confidence and embodies authority when a crisis hits New York.
Yesterday, when a gunman shot a former co-worker and two police officers shot him dead at the Empire State Building, Kelly was on the scene in a flash and within two hours had issued a complete account of what happened to the massed ranks of press.
Ireland’s most popular program year after year drew to a conclusion last night.

Irish American Congressman Paul Ryan is a brave pick by Mitt Romney. It makes the election a contest about ideas, the “get government off my back crowd” against the “government is needed to keep our social and economic fabric together” group.
Romney could have run on just attacking Obama’s evident economic failures but he saw that policy was not working. He was seven points down in a CNN poll as late as Thursday of this week.
