    Only fooling themselves – it’s no secret that many of Ireland’s best ply their trade in countries more conducive to doing research (UK, USA and elsewhere..)

    IDA, Sean Sherlock and the rest of them can go take a running jump off the nearest cliff for all I care…

      I do research in Ireland. It’s my job and there are thousands of people like me. Just because you haven’t got a clue what you are talking about doesn’t mean you are right.

    Check out SFI Little Book of Science.

    More importantly, George Boole is English, not Irish. He only came to Cork at the age of 34. And it’s Ernest Walton, not “Ernst”.

    It’s much harder to make huge discoveries these days.
