Saint Newman

The founder of our university is about to be made a saint. (correction: on the road to being made a saint conditional on NAMA breaking even).

I guess everyone will get a day off school, I mean university, to celebrate?
Apparently, and I am sure you all knew this, beatification marks ascension to heaven and only makes you "Blessed": so well on the way to Sainthood but not there yet.
So it may still be a case of "Close, but no cigar Johnny". You need a couple of decent miracles to get over the final hurdle. We could do with a few of those.

Liam:he needs two miracles. NAMA breaking even would not suffice. What about the slightly more likely "Ireland winning the World Cup"?
