Where to stash the cash

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - OPINION -

SIR, Spare a thought for the mi­nor­ity who are bur­dened with the prob­lem of what to do with a trou­ble­some amount of money. In olden days one could stuff an amount be­hind the bath or un­der the mat­tress, but nowa­days such hidey holes are not big enough to take the quan­ti­ties we’re talk­ing about. As for putting it in the bank: well you see how banks can col­lapse and any­way their in­ter­est is lu­di­crous.

Even if the hard pressed brethren were to stump up some morally due in­come tax, they would still have the chal­lenge of what to do with the re­main­ing shed loads.

The an­swer is in the past: do what the pi­rates did and bury the loot in one of the many par­adise is­lands around the globe. Sin­cerely,

Ted O’Ke­effe, Ranelagh,
