According to John Gage, the medieval colour terms bloi and caeruleus could each refer to blue or yellow, perhaps because of the technologies that produced them, in which mid-stage colours are transformed into others. All these authors are careful to warn us that unnamed colours are not necessarily unseen; or, rather, that the distinctions our language makes may be just as visible to those

22 Austerity and growth: implementing the second Memorandum From the end of February 2012, both the European and the Greek focus was on satisfying the conditions specified on 21 February in the second Memorandum, to enable the release of the €130 billion and to avert a disorderly default. The first challenge was to complete discussions with the private sector regarding the ‘haircut’.

’s current crisis is a consequence of poor choices made by individuals, and that the resulting austerity is a necessary, even common sense, corrective that ‘we’ all must collectively endure.3 Within this narrative, austerity is no longer presented as a hardship, but as a responsibility – an unwelcome legacy of Ireland’s collective mistakes. There is no acknowledgement of how specific class interests have been rapidly reclassified into national interests, as the private debts of bankers and speculators were socialised, the narrative insists, not to protect the interests of

Food and wine as cultural signifiers

Brian Murphy argues that Ireland has been revolutionised in terms of dining and drinking practices during the Celtic Tiger years, and has, in fact, developed its own version of a gastronomic cultural field. A heightened appreciation of fine dining was accompanied by a decline in Ireland's world-renowned tradition of service, as, during the decades of prosperity, the ‘land of a thousand welcomes’ reputation no longer seemed to be merited, due in large part to fewer and fewer Irish people wanting to tend tables or provide a front-of-office interface with customers. In addition, prices soared and tourists began to wonder if they were really welcome any more in Ireland or if they were viewed exclusively in terms of their spending potential. Using Pierre Bourdieu's ideas on social capital, this chapter shows how food and wine could be viewed as cultural signifiers in Celtic Tiger Ireland. People were often defined in terms of where they dined and what they ate and drank. It is no surprise that Michelin-starred restaurants became numerous in the years of economic success as increased disposable income led to a real gastronomic revolution. Austerity has gone some way towards restoring Ireland's culture of service and the food and wine industry now seem less driven by short-term gain have rediscovered genuine hospitality.

feel that this is a vital and somewhat neglected aspect in the analysis of the whole period. The Celtic Tiger, in terms of both prosperity and austerity, affected us all as individuals, and it is through the stories of ­individuals,  and an analysis of these stories, that any real sense of empathy and understanding of the truth of the situation will be ultimately gleaned. There is an apocryphal story told of this period with which we will close our analysis. This story encapsulates much of what we have termed the ‘real’ of the Celtic Tiger and yet it may not be
