When we moved to Ireland, we met an American woman struggling with culture shock. Every day she would say “TINA” repeatedly to remind herself, “This is not America”. She didn’t last here for long.

We made a concerted effort not to compare Ireland to New York State. Recognising that things can be done differently and that does not make them better or worse.

That said…Irish banks are and have always been vile.
