The two Irelands – Bondholders and charities | Irish Examiner.

WE had yesterday a glimpse of two contrasting Irelands.

One was seen active, alive, happy, responsible and empowering at the Dublin City marathon, where a record 14,000 signed up for the event. Although Santa Claus took part, Kenyan Geoffrey Ndungu won, setting a record in two hours, eight minutes and 32 seconds.  The great majority of participants were motivated by charitable rather than athletic impulses. Hundreds of causes will benefit, continuing a tradition that has seen marathon running — or walking — become one of the most effective ways of raising funds for various charities.  As those 14,000 people ran in the 32nd Dublin marathon, Government officials were preparing to pay something in the region of €700 million to those brave enough to invest in Sean FitzPatrick’s Anglo-Irish Bank.  What a difference that €700m would make to the charities, and the great work they do, represented at the Dublin marathon yesterday. Two Irelands indeed.

Population fears as ‘seven billionth’ baby born | Irish Examiner.

THE world welcomed its symbolic “seven billionth” baby yesterday, but celebrations were tempered by worries over the strain that humanity’s population explosion is putting on a fragile planet.  The United Nations said that by its best estimates the seven billionth baby would be born yesterday, and countries around the world marked the demographic milestone in a variety of ways.
