The mark of Paddy.

We are not worthy.

Caroline Keegan tweetz:

Just letting yous know my brother has a birthmark that’s the exact shape of Ireland.

In fairness.


Publishers New Island inform us they have an entire basement of unsold copies a small number of copies left of classic, pareidolia-based best-seller The Broadsheet Book Of Unspecified Things That Look Like Ireland in their storeroom.

New Island suggest: “Come get them or we bin them” “They would make the perfect stocking-filler.”

A fiver while stocks last.

Na irlanda é pior.

Translation: Ireland is worse.

I have lived in Dublin since 2014. In 2016 I suffered a stroke while working as a Software Engineer. Since then I’ve been recovering and making videos for YouTube.

Some Irish friends advised me to send you my video ‘It’s Worse In Ireland’ where I get to talk about some of the the things I (and many other Brazilians) believe are worse here when compared with Brazil (my native country).

It’s not a very serious video as I mainly make comedy videos.

The Echo Chamber.

Just ‘dropped’.

The informative, common sense-stuffed, weekly 30-minute podcast returns with Tony Groves (top left) and Martin McMahon deliberating on Ophelia, The Fianna Fáil Ard Fheis, Tweet stealing and why we really don’t know what a tracker mortgage scandal is. Yet.

Contains: Facts, gags and one penis mention.

Shay Given

On The Ray D’Arcy Show

On the release of his autobiography “Any Given Saturday” Irish soccer legend Shay Given will join Ray on the show to take us behind the scenes of his goalkeeping career which has spanned three decades.

For the first time in nearly 20 years, Ray will share a TV screen with his old pal Dustin The Turkey on this Saturday’s show to take a trip down memory lane. And to celebrate we will be recreating the Den and are looking for Dustin fans or people who appeared on the Den get involved this Saturday night. Message from Dustin here.

Ireland’s Fittest Family coaches – camogie champion Anna Geary, Olympic athlete Derval O’Rourke and GAA legend Davy Fitzgerald – will discuss the fierce competition on the show and Ray will give them a taste of their own medicine by setting them a gruelling challenge of in studio.

Also appearing on the show will be seventeen year old Eimear O Tuathail. The talented songwriter’s dream came true when she was flown to Los Angeles to meet her idol, Ellen de Generes, last week.

*weeps softly*

The Ray D’Arcy Show tomorrow at 10pm on RTÉ One.
