As Eurovision is only two weeks away, I thought you might like to see the entry from Montenegro. It’s all kinds of amazing….

RTÉ won’t touch him.
But they’re made of sterner stuff in Cork.

May I particularly call your attention to 37 minutes into the interview where Jonathan speaks of the danger of banks in the IFSC plunging Ireland into a fresh bailout, possibly much larger than the one we are experiencing.

Sinead’s cash dropping route
Sinead Casey writes:
I bought a coffee in the Lime Tree at Kilmainham Gaol Wednesday and strolled back to Inchicore [Dublin 8] guzzling away. As I reached the Black Lion [Emmet Road[ a woman ran up behind me clutching a twenty that she said I’d dropped.
I looked down and saw my purse was inverted and unzipped and there was no sign of the over €100 in cash that had been there 10 minutes previously.
Cursing my stupidity I walked back to see if I could find any more and ask in the café but all I recovered was two supermarket tokens.
Fast forward to that evening and I get a call from a lovely woman called Siobhan who’d found a wad of cash and my hospital appointment card and was wondering if I was still at the same address. All was deposited through my letterbox yesterday.
Thanks Siobhan and kudos to the people of Inchicore!

You may recall how last April, Justine McCarthy, in The Sunday Times, reported that the Religious Sisters of Charity-owned St Vincent’s Healthcare Group (SVHG), at that time, was demanding that the new National Maternity Hospital agreed to “become a branch of its corporate structure” before allowing the planned co-location in Elm Park to go ahead.
