A sign of the times

My mother's next door neighbour had a big home improvement job done last year, with workmen swarming over the house for about 3 months. Many of them conversed in some eastern european language, or possibly mix of languages.

Now the house across the street from her is getting a make-over. The company doing the work is called Abhaile, the irish for Home.

I couldn't help smiling this morning when 3 workmen got out of their Abhaile-branded van, chatting away in foreignese.
