The leadership and comradeship demonstrated by the Chilean miners are sorely lacking in Ireland at the moment.
One human in five tuned in to watch the rescue of the miners trapped underground in Chile. Just think about that. One human in five. It’s amazing but not incredible. Because the story itself was so extraordinary and so compelling, who wasn’t fascinated as it unfolded? Who didn’t yearn for their release? Who didn’t shed a tear as they emerged like sunglassed pupae from the deep – and the waiting crowd burst into their national anthem?
