A dolphin’s carcass was found at the Parchment Square Student Accommodation complex on the Model Farm Road, Cork.
Some animals’ rights types have said
That a dolphin, even if it’s dead
Shouldn’t come to a bash
Where a lad on the lash
Might carry it over his head.

Says he’ll drain the swamp

The mercury’s rising once more
And today we’ll see temperatures soar
It will feel grotesque

Theresa wrote that it was true.
Fine Gael leadership contender Simon Coveney launches his ‘policy priorities’ in the Dean Hotel, Dublin yesterday
Though he knows that he won’t take first place
Old Simon has stayed in the race
He’s accepted his fate
To hang on and wait
Until Leo has egg on his face.
US president Donald Trump at a press briefing in The White House yesterday
Now Donal’s been forced to confront
What he’s calling the greatest witch hunt
But he’s holding the line
He still says Russia’s fine
And the whole thing is merely a stunt.
When Noonan fell there wasn’t many
Thought FG had future but when he
Stepped up the plate
We all shared his fate
So let’s toast or curse Enda Kenny
Unless YOU can do better?
Leave your ‘Farewell Enda’ ‘ricks below.

If you know an Irish pre-teen
Any colour, once his passport’s green
He could have a howl
Playing Artemis Fowl
And become a star of the big screen
US President Donald Trump (right) with Sergey V. Lavrov, Russia’s foreign minister, in the White House last week.
Poor Donald just couldn’t keep hush in
A chat with a senior Russian
By which I mean spy
There’s bound to be some repercussion.
