Unidentified response to Enda Kenny’s plea for schoolchildren to write their own proclamation to mark 1916-themed ‘Proclamation Day’.

Blummin’ cig-hating, tree-sewing, mini-Trots.

    Then they become depressed and angry at the world and project that into right wing policy.

      Then be forced to leave when they get to a working and voting age, and most will grow up on foreign shores with no say in how the country of their birth is run. No wonder the political classes love to perpetuate the mass emigration.

    And on the reverse of the page “pay rises and shorter working hours for primary school teachers”.

    More more more. Talk to Julien and Mister Taft. They are the makers of more. Oh and Ann Marie. She has loads more.

    The bloody lifeless bodies of of 8 years olds strewn about the GPO. This will all end in tears.

    So what we have learned is that the Green Party is basically a reflection of our 7-8 year old selves, and our idealism.

      I’d say we’ve leared that people become more cynical and more selfish with age.

        A cynic is a word an idealist uses to describe a realist.
        I’m all for idealism but, at some stage, people have to sit down and realize what is actually feasible.
        Its a lesson r the fringe groups in the new Dáil will have to learn some day.

        1. MoyestWithExcitement

          A realist is just what a cynic calls themselves so they can feel better about their depressing pessimism because it’s easier to tell yourself ‘I can’t’ when the *reality* is ‘I won’t’.

            Yeah, good luck inspiring the masses with that froth there. You must be the next Martin Luther King.

    I love the idea of a special Garda Lullaby Squad for kids who can’t sleep. They can do two rounds of rocakbye baby and put on an impromptu performance of The Gruffalo.

      You’d be surprised.
      The teacher in our little ones school has done a great job at teaching healthy eating and the kids are fully bought into it.
      They are even telling their parents they don’t want treats any more, even on Fridays when it’s allowed.
      Perhaps they need to run similar classes for their parents!

      I can. My niece did a big project on it in National School…. so why not these kids too. I believe, but may be mistaken, that there is an awareness campaign in kids schools regarding healthy food v sugary snacks.

      1. meadowlark

        It’s a fantastic idea. Similar situation with my nephew. Doesn’t like chocolate, prefers raisins or apples because of a sustained healthy eating programme at his school, and it being supported by parents in the home.

          I think my primary school in Cork was one of the first to do such a campaign back in the early 90s. Organized by my mum who was the public health nurse at the time. Quite proud. She helped push it up into a national thing.

    Water Conservation?
    Looks like our future are in favour of Irish Water.

    Checkmate Paul Murphy.

    Punishment for smoking? Like lashes of the Whip? These kids sound like Totalitarians! I’m totally not down with this Proclamation. Booo!

  9. jonotti

    I’m quite disturbed by school kids being pushed into this patriotic flag waving bollocks. Nationalism is a close relation of racism and should be avoided for impressionable young minds.

    1. Nice Jung Man

      Completely agree with jonotti

      flag waving bollocks is really the preserve of the spiritually vacuous

    NOT mini-Trots

    because they want more Gardai

    Real Trots hate the police and say ACAB
