    ” Tommy’s baby joy at 73″

    Wait until his wife finds out, he lives at number 77.*

    * hat tip to the late, great Bob Monkhouse.

      That was terrible bertie…
      -I snorted snot and cried for two minutes.

      (Just checking…it was a joke, wasn’t it? Some people ’round here don’t know the difference.)

      You’re a wicked man altogether!
      -Hat tip for the hat tip. Not a lot of people don’t do that even when it isn’t necessary but you did

      Do more jokes.
      You are very good at it.

      I would love to do ‘jokes’.
      I wouldn’t be any good at it.

      No, I’m only joking….
      You are the ONLY funny one here, except for the guy in the Red Dress.

        An unfortunate example of someone who’s mother has been telling him for years that he’s a gas lad altogether, a right card, oh yeah!!

        badger, you’re wholly unfunny. Your ‘gags’ are just puerile cr@p. really.

        add in the pretty high opinion of yourself that you have, you’re just an eejit.

        people cringe for you when they read your dross.

    It has to be said, Ross had better choose his words with care. He is in a fairly precarious position to be getting sanctimonious about “snouts in troughs”. How long a fanboy for the financial sector? How long a Senator?

    1. Frilly Keane

      Imagine the “All Out” he’ll cause with that trap
      Trains
      Dart
      Buses – Dublin and the rest of them

      The Luas brothers out in sympathy …. maybe

      Ross’ll be in his element
      Reliving Thatcher and the Miners

      Like I said yesterday
      It’ll be Ross or Zapper
      Or a very sore Ring
      That’ll scuttle this dinghy

    Mr Harris to “take politics out of health”. What the hell have politics to do with the patient care? Oh…its the Irish Republic.

  4. Clampers Outside!

    Harris to take politics out of health…. so it’s an all party, more than just one or two govt lifespans, and no more clinics for TDs own districts, a removal of the church from boards, yes the church IS political…. what else will he need to do to honour such a grandiose claim?

    I hope he does… I doubt he will

    1. Marian

      Oh… The State wants to tell the church what to think and do! Chuckling over my avacado eggs here…

    I love your optimism boys.
    -It’s kinda infectious.

    I thought I shouldn’t expect anything more than the same old same old from this ‘government’.
    What’s this guy’s name again..?
    -Shame Ross?

    It’s going to be HIS fault, is it?

    I think you might be right.
    Any self-respecting representative of the Irish Democratic Republic would wear a wig or a flat-cap like the Hardly-Aware brothers from Kerry.
    We shouldn’t have to put up with this.
    -Have none of them got any shame?

    We need MORE people like Shane Ross.
    I trust that his methods are Machiavellian, because I know he’s a good man.

    Your move…

      1. They Tried To Make Me Go To Rehab

        That’s pretty nasty and uncalled for.

        I can’t recall any sort of contribution idiotic or otherwise from “SPANX”

        The modding on this site is a bit strange and inconsistent.

        It seems some people can get away with hurling any sort of insult, while others if they put out even one insult and some crybaby complains about it it gets taken down. It should be all or nothing.

        1. Won't somebody please think of the children

          They have their favourites and let them away with whatever they choose despite their inane “banter” cf camplers, frilly, Anne – I could go on but I’d rather chop my fingers off than give those tossers air time.

          1. Clampers Outside!

            Tossing saves you from cancer.
            Just thought I’d mention that, lovely day out to be moanin’ on the internets, think I shoulda worn sunscreen… anyhoo, have a lovely evening, and give the tossing a go yourself, might loosen ya up :)

    1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

      You deserve a few, spanks.
      -I’m sorry I never gave them to you. You heading there Anne SPANX.

      You’ll get there faster in a taxi.
      Taxis are free, aren’t they?

      1. SPANX

        I’m not Anne, badger boy.

        The multiple name lark is your game – badger/catherine/rory/spawned and the other one up above

        1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

          Anne, only one person knows I used to have the nickname ‘Badger’.
          I remember telling you.

          I have two names these days.
          sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq and sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq.
          If you can’t deal with that you should learn how to, and stop projecting your bad habits on other people. Not everyone is a (unt.

    Indo: Irish Water boss will get €300k tax-free pay-off

    So Tierney gets a lump €300k tax free lump sum and an €100k pension at 59. Nice. Neither the outgoing nor incoming ministers were aware of this deal apparently. Coveney has some credence but Kelly is either lying or is just downright incompetent.

          1. Steve

            It’s big money alright but it’s what all retiring county managers get with 40 years behind them .

            Even garbage indo highlights this.

            Issue with public service pay no??

          2. Brother Barnabas

            Fair enough, Steve.

            My assertion that Kelly’s a lying fool goes beyond this story, though. He’s shown it time and time again.

          3. some old queen

            @ Steve. Point taken but given his record with this and poolbeg beforehand, some level of accountability would be nice. These kinds of people seem to sail through to pension with impunity.

    1. Clampers Outside!

      Is that his ‘only’ pension? All ‘work’ for the state he’s done, overruns in Galway and elsewhere the incinerator debacle he headed up, and other council jobs, and IW….. can I assume this pension covers all his other fupp ups… Anyone?

  7. Steve

    yeah agreed. i can kind of understand the yearly pension element, although its still huge money. wtf does a 60 year old who probably has his mortgage paid, kids out of the nest etc. need a 100k a year for.

    but the golden handshake, for all retiring public servants, never understood that…..they should at least cap it at a more reasonable figure, i.e. not above average industrial wage. its madness what some of them pick up.

    1. Frilly Keane

      No Public Servant should retire on anything more than the Average Industrial Wage. None.
      If the likes of John Tierney has planned a retirement that is beyond that budget.
      Two Words

      Private Pension

      And that lump sump should not be more than one years pay.

      How many SNAs would that annual pension keep in our classrooms?

      1. They Tried To Make Me Go To Rehab

        To an extent the golden handshake could be viewed as an incentive for talented people (who we want to attract) to serve in the public sector where average remuneration is generally lower at executive level. The problem being of course is that during the Bertie era this simple equation was turned on its head and public servants started to be remunerated like private sector CEOs, as did a whole host of people at middle management level.

        1. Frilly Keane

          I know
          Tierney brought NO Private Sector Industrial Exec skills to the gig

          Where did I go wrong …

          1. some old queen

            He didn’t bring any public sector exec skills either by the looks of it. Then again, look who appointed him?

          2. some old queen

            @ Brother. No it was Hogan.

            I expect there will be number of these sorts of payments because there is certain to quite a number in the same situation as Tierney. Bluffing their way through to the contract dead line while being drip fed things to say by two grand a day consultants.

          3. Brother Barnabas

            We’ll be mopping up Hogan’s mess for years to come.

            What did we as a society ever do to deserve such crooked ladyparts?

          4. classter

            They found it very difficult to recruit anybody for the role.

            New water utility, relatively poor pay (for an exec role), intensely political, dealing with loads of county councils…

  8. Vanessa

    Facing 30,000 viewers of trailer of missing child 6 year old Mary Boyle. Not a word on rte. On a par to BBC’s silence on Jimmy Saville? Exposure brings more victims forward normally. God Bless all who protect children.Thank you BS.

    1. Won't somebody please think of the children

      AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA that made me laugh – how does a website that promotes abortion protect children?

  9. Hashtag McMór

    Ah yes, the VIP Style Awards.

    Classy stuff. That’s why Michael O’Doherty’s office is in Smithfield Square. Burnt orange bike Michael?

    1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

      Don’t worry lads, I have this one…I’m going to translate it into English first, then figure out what it means.
      -Bear with me…

      I can do it by meself, it’s okay…
      No, hang on, hang on…

      I thought I had it there for a second.
      -Come back to me later on…

      (Is VIP one of those ‘energy’ drinks? And who the Hell is Martin O’Donoghue? And do they even make bikes in orange? …..whooahhh…this is a very hard one!)

          1. They Tried To Make Me Go To Rehab

            He’s somewhat Joycean in his ramblings but so far what I’ve learned is

            a) he likes music and is/was a former DJ
            b) he likes wordplay but it is a lot funnier in his head – trust me on this memes
            c) he likes Catherine McEntee, not sure it’s entirely reciprocated but so what
            d) he’s from Jobstown and has a left-leaning somewhat anarchist political pov.
            e) he likes a drink and works unsociable hours.

            In short there’s no agenda really. What’s your excuse though for the gibberish YOU spout here about Sinn Féin and the like Clampers?

    2. Frilly Keane

      Oh big drama there lads
      Don’t mention the war
      Some serious handbags going on

      Mickie ‘D wanted me to go over his side
      Said I’d get front page
      And a glamour make over
      And loads a’ freebies
      n’ invites n’Brand Ambassador stuff
      But Johnny put it up t’im
      An said
      “NO!

      Or whatever its called
      Loike it’s soooo vulgar
      Frill would call you spam
      Or loike something Brendan O’Connor would drive
      Seriously, Zip up your Mickie Michael”

      And

      And I’m a sucker for Strawberry Blonds

      Better the divil n’all that

      ( I’ve had a drink or few.. those effin’ Blahs. ..)

  10. some old queen

    Once more for power bottoms for Jesus. Oh I forgot this one; I need to spend more time up north.

    Sunday Life: Arlene toasts poll success. Rochester ginger drink from Holland and Barrett was it?

    DUP secured same, SF & SDLP down slightly, Peeps b4 Profit entrance in West Belfast and Martin McGuinness near an also ran in Derry.

    Interesting that DUP who are now pitching towards equal marriage as ‘the Catholic Church of Northern Ireland’ should remain the same?
