KILKENNY -- During my past eight and a half years in Ireland, I have watched the country survive seismic events including the demise of Aer Lingus, Y2K, the advent of the euro, the abolition of duty free, the ascent of Jackie Healy Rae, and the plastic bag tax. Now Ireland is holding its breath for a radical "no smoking" ban. Somehow I think it's just as significant as the other seismic events I've survived with the country. In fact, surviving a no smoking ban is much less stressful than losing your runners to Holly, the Samoyed-Spaniel with a shoe fetish.
