    I see the 4th estate in Galway are quite indignant about their councillors not getting a say in the bypass. Considering the council dithered and sat on their hands for 20 years, perhaps it is time someone competent and grown-up be encouraged to make the decisions for them.

  2. Soundings

    The coverage of the murder suspect’s wife in the Examiner, Indo and tabloids (that includes you, Mail) is despicable. This is a woman – who is freely giving evidence which would appear to be quite helpful to the prosecution, including confirming a spade found at the murder scene was theirs – is having her intimate life dissected with pictures (and an unusual court drawing in the Examiner). Regardless of the outcome in the case, this is another life blighted because of the Irish media (RTE remains the worst offender).

    And curious that Aer Lingus has flown off the front page. Have the media twigged that they’re being used in a fire sale of a relatively low value national asset? If the deal is so great as Ryanair says, why doesn’t Ryanair sell its 30% to IAG? Can you believe a word that comes out of Michael O’Leary’s mouth supporting the sale (of the govt stake, not Ryanairs) when Aer Lingus is his main competitor?

      I don’t justify tabloid journalism but the wife of the accused is a key witness in this case, and I think it’s right that her story, her character and her cognisance questioned.

      1. The Bird in the Box

        And that is done, in the court. The prosecution and defence had every opportunity to question her. I don’t see the need for the media to drag out her private life.

    Madonna stage fall horror? Really IDM? Horror? She fell down for fup sake. It’s not quite on the level of Boko Haram stealing women or ISIS murdering people.

    1. Mani

      She’s 80 years of age. Have you any idea what can happen to a body that old and brittle when it experiences even the mildest of traumas? She could have shattered like an egg.
