The Celtic Tiger is dead.

I notice that the Virgin music store on Henry Street has been replaced by a Poundworld thrift shop. For those of you who don't know, Henry Street is the second-biggest shopping street in Dublin. Truly, the economy must be on its knees if we're substituting junk shops for record stores - in prime locations. (The main sales pitch of these downmarket bazaars is that most of the merchandise sells for one euro.)

One of many, many reasons to finish my degree and flee with it to warmer climes.
