The 'Independence' sale is symbolic of the current attitude of this State towards our national heritage. Everything is for sale. Every inch of land, from shore to shore, no matter how consecrated, has a price. Historical sites, graveyards, buildings, artefects, and national symbols of every description are up for auction, to the highest bidder. And the largest seller, rather than purchaser, is the State.

What self-respecting State can spend 9 million euros a day on roads, and not even 1 million for its own family heirlooms? Instead of seeking to link us with our past, there is a sense that we are being separated from it.

With the sale of publicly owed lands bringing in hundreds of millions of euros, perhaps a restriction should be placed on money earned, to ensure that a certain amount is spent preserving and purchasing other sites and objects of undeniable national importance?
