They'd have done it first thing in the morning but the council has been inundated with complaints about their workers getting in the way of those trying to boost the economy during rush hour.

I don t understand it. Here in the West of Scotland we haven t had any snow this year. The shops are filled with snow spades and red plastic sledges, which are coming down in price daily. Council depots have mountains of grit whereas two years ago when we had lots of snow grit was in short supply. We ve had the best winter in my living memory. Probably in for a horrid summer.

Roma: Lucky you. The rest of us have traffic jams, later than usual postal services, and higher electric/gas bills. =)

I'm also in the West of Scotland and my kids (and me) are hugely disappointed not to have been sledging once this winter. On the bright side we seem to have had far fewer rainy days than is normal; lots of cold, clear, bright, beautiful winter days.

No snow here in the West of Ireland all winter. When it does snow though we all do the sensible thing and stay at home. :)

Hi Charlieost

Happy St Patrick s Day. Ever since seeing Ryan s Daughter, I ve wanted to visit the Dingle Peninsula and Ring of Kerry. One year, hopefully.

I love that film. Beautifully shot. Shame about Robert Mitchum's Irish accent but you can't have anything. Is there an actual Irish person in the whole film? Still great though.

There has NEVER been a film that accurately expresses the Irish mentality, culture or politic. As long as a film expresses the European stereotype of the Irish person, it is welcomed.

Hi Spin There has probably never been any film which accurately expresses the mentality, culture or politics of a country, given that in every country there is no one view held by every one. Even when a film is made and produced in the country it depicts, there is usually a resort to stereotypes to ensure maximum exposure and hence maximum profit. Sterotypes are a problem when they are consistently used to portay a people as being inferior. Hence, the English like to portary the Irish as stupid, the Scots as unintelligible drunks. Conversely, their sterotype of an Englishman is often of a snooty, superior pin striped gentleman, suggesting an acceptance of their "superiority". Sadly, and I think particularly in the case of Ireland stereotypes are perpetuated by the Irish themselves. Most irish comedy, at least as exported outwith Ireland, centres around the stupidity of its characters. This is similar to early black comedies, such as Lennie Henry, playing up to the stereotype.

That said, I have seen many films set in ireland which i have enjoyed. As I am not irish, i cannot comment on their degree of authenticity. Films that spring to mind are Micahael Collins, ---Blows the Barley, My Left Foot, Angela s Ashes, The Magdalene Sisters, The Quiet Man, Cal, Lamb.
