Cool Heads And Warm Hearts

On last night’s Tonight with Alison O’Connor, Alison was joined by Colette Browne (Irish Independent) and Hugh O’Connell (TheJournal.ie).

On the subject of the suspected Ebola fatality in Donegal, Hugh said:

“Obviously with headlines like these, it does create a sense of like ‘Oh my God Ebola is in Ireland’ but you know it is important to say that it is only suspected at this point so you know we have to wait and see the outcome of these tests. So we should know tomorrow what we’re dealing with.”

    Ebola Day
    You should have stayed at home yesterday
    Ah-ha words can’t describe
    The feeling and the way you lied

    These games you play
    They’re going to end in more than tears some day
    Ah-ha Ebola Day
    It shouldn’t ever have to end this way

    It’s eight fifteen
    And that’s the time that it’s always been
    We got your message on the radio
    Conditions normal and you’re coming home

    Ebola Day
    Is mother proud of little boy today
    Ah-ha this kiss you give
    It’s never ever going to fade away

    Ebola Day
    It shouldn’t ever have to end this way
    Ah-ha Ebola Day
    It shouldn’t fade in our dreams away

    It’s eight fifteen
    And that’s the time that it’s always been
    We got your message on the radio
    Conditions normal and you’re coming home

    Ebola Day
    Is mother proud of little boy today
    Ah-ha this kiss you give
    It’s never ever going to fade away

        Oh he’s here again,
        The Mani with the child in his eyes

        He’s very understanding and he’s so,
        Aware of all my situations,
        When I stay up late,
        He’s always with me,
        What I feel when I hesitate,
        Oh I’m so worried about my love,
        They say “No, No it won’t last forever”,
        And here I am again my girl,
        Wondering what on earth I am doing here,
        Maybe he doesn’t love me,
        I just took a trip on my love for him.

        Oh he’s here again,
        The Mani with the child in his eyes,

            do you really have ‘the child in your eyes’ mani? should i be ringing the social workers?

    Very good post BS. The Journal’s behaviour last week was abysmal, especially the way Susan “Ebola!” Daly just dismissed all criticism out of hand. Typical behaviour by that outlet, of course.

  4. Planet of the Missing Biros

    The Journal seems to think it’s a serious news outlet. It’s an online magazine of poor content and whimsical rubbish designed to entertain people with poor attention spans and mediocre intelligence.

    And the people who work in it have a very false sense of their relevance in the world of media and news.

    TheJournal.ie is a waste of space, it’s home to some of the worst writers and thinkers in Ireland. An explainer and timeline is as good as it gets.

    And they ‘curate’ copy. It’s called not having reporters on the ground. They have used a number of my stories this year. No cheque as of yet. Haroo Von Haroo. Long live Holy Germany.
