So this is the corporate standard tonight? The food didn’t match the cost of the menu. Seriously. How do I complain?

Fifteen quid.




Mark Tighe of the Sunday Times has his penalty saved by Richard Boyd Barrett who despite injury effortlessly moves to the right during last night’s Politicians Vs Journalists match at Lansdowne Road, Dublin.

The event raised over €40,000 for Temple Street Hospital and Concern.

“I know there a lot of Catholics here, right?”

Madonna at Lansdowne Road, Dublin last night

MADONNA IS apparently afraid of thunder and lightning and was said to be anxiously watching Dublin’s cloud heavy skies in the run-up to last night’s concert.

As it happened, the heavens failed to light up and all the electricity came from the material girl and her blood-splattered S&M troupes who danced up a storm for close to two hours in front of a half-empty Aviva Stadium which was more like a giant hen party than a concert.

Ah here.
