It’s been a hebdomas horribilis for Ireland. I feel positively hungover from seven days of relentlessly tracking the Guardian‘s live blogging and the newswires as it unfolded: the IMF landing in Dublin, the government denying anything was wrong, the governor of the bank of Ireland saying that something was very wrong, the governent finally saying that something might be wrong, and the British press squeezing the life out of it blow by blow.
But for all the blather and panic, the one piece of coverage I’ll remember when Ireland becomes less fun to cover – perhaps when Portugal takes over that mantle, as is suggested – is the Irish Daily Star‘s critique of the Irish government’s handling of bailout talks. Surely one of the best newspaper headlines of 2010.
