Time for Change in Ireland
Since Ireland became a republic in 1948, there has not been any major overhaul of the way the country is ran. We inherited a system from the British that was intended for a 19th century world. From our independence in 1921, politicians were more concerned with keeping their own positions than running the country for the wider Irish people. Score settling, one-upmanship, jobs for their cronies and the lining of their own pockets played a role in the political malaise that set in.
