Potemkin village

That's a fake shopfront behind this man and his dog in Belcoo, County Fermanagh -- near where, not by coincidence, the G8 summit will be held later this month. Great* story with photography by Cathal McNaughtan for Reuters.

UPDATE: A widely circulated Calculated Risk post based on an earlier Irish Times story about the same phenomenon appears to convey that Fermanagh is in the Republic. *The Irish Times probably should have gotten a credit from Reuters.
