Sir, – Possibly the only real victims of the collapse of the Celtic tiger were those no longer affordable horses – the status symbols of more affluent days – deported in their thousands to continental abattoirs. We should not complain too loudly when some of them find their way back, metamorphosed into burgers and lasagne. – Yours, etc,
