For our overseas followers you may be interested to know that in Ireland election day was last Friday and the final count is almost completed. Fine Gael - led by Enda Kenny - is top of the list right now but unlikely to gain an overall majority. They will have to allow others into their bed. Most likely bed-partners are the Labour party but the honeymoon will be short as Ireland is on a fast track to bankruptcy.
    The previous Government of Fianna Fail (coalition with six members of the Green Party) have reduced to their lowest return in history. In fact, all six of the Green Party members were wiped out with none retaining their seat. Fianna Fail have been reduced from over 70 seats to under twenty - a virtual wipeout.
      So, the big question for Racing/Breeding Industry is how will our business be treated by the new coalition? We can give a better answer to that question when we know for sure the make-up of the new coalition in a few days. I am far from an educated political observer and hope others can give an opinion.
