“I Was In The Kitchen For 8 Hours”


The contentious remark arose [on TV3’s Come Dine With Me] after Limerick model Madeline Mulqueen, star of the Rubberbandits video Horse Outside, put tomato ketchup on lobster cooked by Mr [Michael] O’Doherty.

He then replied: “That’s the grossest thing I’ve seen since the last time I was in Limerick.”

Then, before serving his main course of duck, he said he was confident that duck had “reached Limerick”.

[Senior Counsel] Mr [Brendan] Nix rang TV3 after the programme aired on Thursday night to complain, and threatened legal action if they didn’t apologise – even though a defamation case cannot be taken by a whole city.

“I’m incandescent with rage,” he said. “Incandescent is not even the word for it.”

…But Mr O’Doherty said: “It was said in the heat of the moment – I was in the kitchen for eight hours.”

    Well, if ‘incandescent’ isn’t the word for the rage of Mr Nix, what is?

    Senior Counsels are rarely stuck for words, I’ve found.

    I can’t believe how much I enjoyed that week of ‘come dine with me’. It was hilarious from start to finish. Shane Byrne was comical and Pippa whatsherface was surprisingly likable.

      It was a great weeks viewing but that Pippa one was a gowl of the highest order. She was only concerned about her next cover on yer mans magazine. She knows what side her bread is buttered on…

    So let me get the situation straight…

    People complaining to wrangle publicty, from a group of attention seekers on a show thats about as interesting as watchin spuds boil.

    And shame on the viewers aswell!

    In fairness, you should have not watched it when you saw that he was on it. He’s an unbleiveable Bellend. Driving a rented Lambo and wearing out that Hermes belt kit till it’s ragged

      Don’t know the lad, and wouldn’t have known of him ’till Broadsheet. But that kitchen is not the kitchen of a lad who wears Hermes …

    I don’t know why the people of Limerick are so sensitive, I’ve lived In Limerick and it’s an utter toilet… I’ve also lived in Clondalkin and that’s a hole! The place I grew up in, Churchtown, is a shit hole. It’s not personal, just observational.
