She’s ‘on’ the ‘wagon’.

The launch this morning of On The Dry a fundraising initiative by the Irish Heart Foundation and supported by AIG and 98FM that asks people to give up the hooch for January.

      Because lots of people depend on Christmas alcohol sales for a living. Because people who drink and can afford to drink like a drink at Christmas and because that would be way more preachy.

    Who are Caroline Morahan and Karena Graham? I’ve heard of the two guys, but who are the women?

      Whatever about Karena , Caroline Morahan is very well known I would have said.

      Morahan is/was a TV presenter and Graham is usually the model behind Georgia Salpa that you don’t notice because Salpa is in a bikini.

    How did they manage to afford Hollywood actress Caroline Morahan for this campaign?
    Spending the big bucks on her must be why they weren’t able to afford a real umbrella for this campaign.

    Don’t know any of them but the lad on the right looks completely shook and a good deterrent to give up the drink altogether.

    And Jesus, I really hope ripped jeans are not coming back in fashion.

      I see you are selective about your objectification issues. If there is any being done here, it’s across both genders surely…. or are you proposing some Sharia law type thing to outlaw revealing a woman’s shoulders because that is the only difference between them.

      Christ I’m turning into someones gran pointing that out

    If I were Guinness, I’d retaliate with a “live dangerously (without insurance which you probably won’t need)” month or a “give your ears a break (from bland music radio and Smashy and Nicey deejayiness)” month.

    Nice one. A lot of people won’t give it up of their own accord so a campaign like this give the motivational kick and makes a person feel as if their doing something good while being healthy a the same time. Also if you have any those annoying friends who insist you go for a drink on a Tuesday night, you can just say, “Sorry peeps, I’m on the dry” (or go with them, have orange juice all night, drive them home but collect money like a taxi before letting them out of the car).

    *Disclaimer : By a lot of people I of course mean me.

      You will receive a salary comensurate with the amount of people who wish to see you lying on a barrel j.k.

    Jaysus, Bernard Brogan would turn up at the opening of an envelope these days if there was a few quid in it for him

    People like these make my birthday in January very frustrating. An excuse to be smug. If you’re so tied to the booze for 11 months that you have to go cold turkey for a month to make you feel better, you should take a long look at yourself.
