A total of 52,793 people were interviewed globally face-to-face, by telephone or online. […]

Oh dear. Ireland is continuing to swirl down the drain. Ever since they lost their English Protestant persecutors, they’ve been getting less and less resolvedly Catholic.

Atheist or very liberal Catholics. They used to be very pro-life, but now a majority of them favor birth control and even abortion.

What about their soccer teams? That’s all Europeans seem to care about anymore, other than bashing U.S. & Israel for our `Islamophobia’.

I am a big fan of the University City of Dublin "Choral Scholars," and their outstanding musical talent.

I just learned that the UCD Student Union IMPEACHED their own recently-elected president because she refused to use Student Union funds to advertise antilife information such as how to go over and get an abortion in the U.K.

Mind you, publishing such information with student funds is unlawful. She was resisting the use of student funds for illegal purposes.

So they voted to impeach her, and I mean overwhelmingly.

I was crushed when I learned this. Geesh. The soul of Ireland down the sewer. It makes the middle of my chest hurt.

yes the Q is: which Ireland of the 2 Irish countries.

And how many in the pole, and how biased.

And I say it is directly related to the NEWS THEY HEAR.
