Free Sunday at 2pm?

Want to watch the match with French people?

No wait, come back.

Just to let you know that we as French have decided to balance this UNFAIR match – from a French fan perspective in Ireland!

We’re organising probably the biggest gathering of French supporters in Ireland this Sunday at The Church Bar ( Jervis street), Dublin 1) in Dublin with Le Petit Journal and French Friday.

We may be the only pub where there will be as many French supporters as Irish ones!

Front page of the Irish Times last night

‘Lord Haw Haw’ writes:

The Irish Times called it wrong last night. Their story appeared on the front page for today. “Farage predicted Remain would ‘edge it'”. But now there is no sign of the story on the Irish Times website. Surely they should have kept the story online, for archival purposes if nothing else. The Guardian don’t indulge in this type of nonsense. It’s OK to get it wrong. It’s not OK to cover up….


Right so.

Bad day in the Burnaby.

I just emailed the council but wondering if your readers are any wiser:

‘Hello, somebody removed Oscar’s pipe from his right hand many years ago. He’s left looking rather silly as a result. I’m wondering why the pipe has not been replaced on this important tourist attraction after so much time has passed’.

Last night.

In Cork city.

It was Bonna Night.

Paddy O’Shea, of Norries from Cork, writes:

These four confident kids on Kilmore Road, in Knocknaheeny, built their own fire and were proud as punch.

Paddy adds:

Residents of Glen Heights with their communal bonfire (top). They arranged their own wardens and controlled it. This was probably the biggest fire, hitting about 20 feet at its peak. Above are two residents of Knocknaheeny posing with a shoe they found to throw into the fire.


Thanks Paddy

An homage to the occasionally moments-too-late New York subway commuter by Jessica Leibowitz. To wit:

There is no quintessential NYC experience quite like running down a subway station platform with your arms flapping all about like a distressed penguin, making eye contact with the conductor, and then hesitantly stretching out your hand to try to slip between the doors before they close.
