    Roddy Doyle is untouchable as far as I’m concerned. I’m embarrassed for those who are currently engaged in this trend of having a pop at him (“Censorship by Hive Mind” I call it). Doyle’s ‘Two Pints’ pieces are fantastic standalone works, and as a compilation they form incredible diaries of Irish and World current affairs.

    We should count ourselves fortunate that such a talented artist is sharing his work for free, and we should remind ourselves that we have a CHOICE on whether to engage with it or not. If you don’t like the pieces appearing on your Facebook feed just choose to unfollow the page or not see posts from the page, it’s that simple. Don’t criticise the man for paying tribute to his icons and heroes.

      – Fuckin’ true. I was only bleedin’ readin’ the death notices dudder day on de boose, and a baldy fella asks me, ‘Are ya finished wit dah?’ Who was it only fuckin’ Roddy Doyle.
      – Ask me bollix.
      – An’ then he sez, ‘D’yeh know Mr Camomile T? I love dat fella. Number wun fan, so he is.’ So there yeh fuckin’ go.
      – Ah fuck tha’.
