The Wind that shook the Barley

Congratulations to all involved in the making of The Wind that shook the Barley, which won the Palme d'Or at Cannes, and well done Minister John O'Donoghgue for his concern for the feelings of Fine Gael.

However any Fine Gael misgivings will probably be nothing compared to the feelings of the men and women who fought on the anti-treaty side if they could see endemic corruption and unbridled arrogance that were to become the hallmarks of the party which was the political inheritor of their principled struggle.
