The Limerick Leader, February 12, 1913.
A month inside.
From Liam Hogan‘s excellent History is What We Choose To Remember blog.
Michael Lowry TD
A world where PC has gone mad,
Makes poor Michael Lowry feel sad,
To say a kind word,
About a hot bird,
Is not something he sees as bad.

Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland, Martin McGuinness
Any day now the British will yield,
Control of our country’s fourth field,
At least that’s what Marty,
Proclaimed to his party,
When all of their plans were revealed.

Broadcaster Rick O’Shea
On radio this Saturday,
The 2FM DJ O’Shea,
Will talk about verse,
To make matters worse,
He may not have that much to say.
All right wing dentists agree,
That you can’t beat the sight of Page 3,
So go buy The Sun,
Which prints nipples for fun,
Unless you’re a feminazi.
President Obama with Joe Biden (left) and John Boehner at last night’s ‘State of The Union’
Obama stood up to debate,
Why the Union’s in such a state,
He wants to take more,
From the rich for the poor,
Which makes his opponents irate.
It’s easy to teach a young bride,
How Catholic rules are applied,
It’s simple, you see,
Just breed yourself three,
And after that turn down the ride.
Leo Varadkar, Nuala Carey and Kevin McLaughlin at the launch of ‘On The Dry’
For his health, at the start of the year,
Leo said he was giving up beer,
Which some gobshites might say,
Sounds a little bit gay,
But it’s not, and there’s no need to sneer.

If someone insults your old dear,
Feel free to lash out without fear,
No need to be meek,
Throw a punch to the cheek,
And the Pope will give you the all clear.
If you’ve ever taken a shot,
Of yourself in the nip looking hot,
And you don’t think it’s right,
To be on some website,
The Hit Team will make sure you’re not.
