Interested, well look no further than…this piece by Dan O’Brien, which in an odd way, deserves a much closer analysis, if only because of the litany of unsupported assumptions that underpin it. But that’s for another day. These lines here though sum up perfectly the problem with those assumptions.
. Although Ireland’s classlessness may be exaggerated, it is a broadly meritocratic society and this must partly explain its good comparative international ranking.
People at the top in business, the public sector and politics come from all walks of life, access to education at all levels is free and large numbers of foreign workers have climbed the career ladder here with less opposition than in any other country one cares to think about.
