The Wikipedia has a splendid article on a British poster from 1939 called Keep Calm and Carry On. It was intended to raise the morale of the British public under the threat of impending invasion.

Since the failed Irish government coalition between Fianna Fáil and the Greens has driven Ireland to enter into talks with the EU and IMF about a bailout, it seems clear that the Irish public at large is getting more and more despondent as the days and weeks go on.

Keep Calm and Carry On

Please feel free to share it. You can show your determination to weather the crisis with an inspirational coffee mug! Visit the Keep Calm and Carry On IRL Café Press shop! I bought two mugs for myself today. When I’m drinking a cuppa I’ll take some comfort in my calmness. Perhaps. There’s a North American Keep Calm and Carry On IRL Café Press shop too.

And now there’s a Keep Calm and Carry On Ireland Facebook page, too, for this little bit of cheerfulness.
