Golden Discs

What a night.

A big, enveloping thank you to clockwise from top: a Velázquez self-portrait by Luke Brennan; Johnny Keenan; Marcel Kreuger; ‘Preposterous‘; Derek Mooney, Olga Cronin and Luke Brennan, our panel on last night’s Broadsheet on the Telly.

It was night dominated by the Disclosures Tribunal and the spectre of Sinn Féin – with Derek and Vanessa barely on the same page, both as implacable as the province itself.

Proceedings were becalmed by Luke’s latest etchings from Portugal.

The show can be viewed in its entirety above.

Food of the love gods.

Last week, we offered a Maltesers Teasers hamper to a Broadsheet reader who could successfully complete (to the satisfaction of the judges) this romantic rhyme:

‘Roses are red,
And so are my Teasers,

You answered in your dozens.

But there could be only one winner.

In reverse order then…

Roses are red
And so are my Teasers,
At weekends me and he,
We turn into Creatures.


Roses are red
So are my Teasers
I think I’m STI free
But that’s not what my wee says


Roses are red
And so are my Teasers
I should shout out my safeword.,
But sure, anything to please her.

f lawless

Roses are red,
And so are my Teasers,
Love is an abstract concept for sure,
hijacked by commercialism that nasty auld hoor,
for yet another day to keep you docile enough,
under the illusion of romance just buying more stuff.


Roses are red
So are my Teasers
For someone you’d love
To get diabetes.


Roses are red,
And so are my Teasers,
My fiancé repeated the leaving cert twice,
But I love her and not high achievers

Dublin Bus Smoker

Roses are red,
And so are my Teasers,
Mount me Denis O’Brien,
Said no Broadsheet readers…


Roses are red,
And so are my Teasers,
I don’t wanna be alone,
I don’t wanna be alone.



Roses are red,
And so are my Teasers.
It’s the 1st day of Lent,
I’ll save them for Easter.


Thanks all.
