Let’s have singing and dancing and mirth,
Now we know what democracy’s worth,
The tables will turn,
And the bondholders burn,
And the Greeks will inherit the earth.
George Ferguson saw nothing wrong,
With planting the folk from Hong Kong,
By the shores of Lough Foyle,
But he made some blood boil,
And the answer he got was quite strong.
Donald Trump thinks that he knows the score,
But those decent chaps who all shout “fore!”,
Say when he shoots his mouth,
About folks from down south,
The best thing to do is ignore.

Fianna Fáil Mayo County Councillor Lisa Chambers
Meanwhile at Mayo County Council…
Cllr Seamus Weir told those gathered about of a trip to New York when incoming Cathaoirleach Michael Holmes brought Weir and a couple of other councillors into a hotel to pass the time. A relative of the Tiernaur man was working there.
“We had worked with her in Asahi, and we all had a crush on her,” said Cllr Weir. “She was one beautiful-looking woman,” he gushed. “That woman is my wife’s sister,” Cllr Holmes revealed to Cllr Weir.
…Meanwhile, when congratulating Ballyheane’s Cllr Lisa Chambers on her election as Leas Cathaoirleach, Cllr Patsy O’Brien told her she is ‘a good woman’.
“I went out there (to Ballyheane) 32 years ago and got a good woman too … I know all the women out there are very good.”
Rod Wolfe, 58, survived being struck by lightning for the second time in his life
This morning’s news is rather odd,
As it seems that a fellow named Rod,
Has been bit by two,
Massive bolts from the blue,
He must somehow have annoyed God.
The Dublin Gay Pride Parade on Saturday
Some more good news if you are gay,
You’re under no pressure to say,
“I do” to him yet,
It’s anyone’s bet,
Just when you will get your big day.

It’s been a tough week for Sinn Féin,
In the Cork East they’re feeling the strain,
Of some nasty row,
Which the leadership vow,
Is something they’ll never explain.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Joe O’Reilly TD
The Cavan-based based deputy, Joe,
Checked Google and shouted “Oh no!”
It said he took the life,
Of his innocent wife,
He complained, but they were very slow.
