On RTE One this Sunday at 9.30pm Love/Hate Season 4 comes to an end. Once you’ve gotten your last fix – we want to see how closely you’ve been watching at the ultimate Love/Hate Table Quiz. Put yourself to the test with your fellow love haters at Against the Grain on Wexford Street, Dublin on Tuesday November 19th at 7pm. We’ll have eight rounds of eight Qs (including a picture round and audio round)!
Only 24 blips for a table of four and it’s all for charidee.
Coola and, if you will, boola.
Thanks John Buckley

Reading this horrific story of despicable animal cruelty, I wondered how all those Broadsheeters who scoffed at that BS posting on the “Love/Hate” cat cruelty story line being unrelated to the actual killing of cats.
The truly sad thing is this will only escalate in the next few weeks. “Children” did this. The heart sinks.

It already has its own Facebook page.
Deserves it, in fairness.
A bilingual crime lord, you say?

Thought you might be interested in hearing Peter Coonan on Raidió na Life today. He’s going to be today’s guest on ’20 Bliain’ and will be doing an hour long interview as Gaeilge with Orla Nic Carthaigh. Here‘s a taster.

Each week a different guest comes into studio to talk about the last 20 years of their lives. Previous guests have included Dara Ó Briain. You can listen back to that interview here
