Bertie says no to national day of mourning?

Richard Delevan raised this point much earlier, but better late than never, we join the ‘stampede’.. Should Ireland have a national day of mourning to mark the death of John Paul II? Cuba, somewhat surprisingly, has begun three days of national mourning. Needless to say opinions differ between employers and employees although, obviously, their concerns would be a minor consideration in such a decision.. obviously.. However, for some, pre-arranged plans for Friday have already been changed.
