Emma Sheridan, Helen McEntee, Minister of State for Mental Health and Older People, and First Fortnight co-founder David Keegan (Above)
First Fortnight has just unveiled its festival programme for 2017.
It’s going 8 years, in fairness.
Paul Kimmage, Eleanor Tiernan, and Ivor Browne will all make contributions while Le Galaxie
yokes, Otherkin and Girl Band will help supply the tunes.
As an ‘older person’, I strenuously object to Helen McEntee being Junior Minister for me, or for anything else.
yeah how is she qualified to do this job?
Rabble! rabble! rabble! There isn’t enough young people in government. Its all old men.
Younger people get appointed.
Rabble! rabble! rabble! How are these in government? How are they qualified? What sort of experience could they possible have?
Some people are only happy if they’re miserable
or if they’re having impure thoughts about Helen McEntee
@Sheikh: Why, you almost rose out of your bathchair! Quickly, nurse – tune the wireless to The Light Programme: Sing Something Simple always keeps ’em calm.
My absolute favourite, Neilo, many thanks. Will you ever return to Ireland, do you think? We could do with ‘people’ of your calibre.
Sheikh: you know I’m joshin’, sure I’m an aul’ arse myself. I returned here from England about 26 years ago. Just after you got the hundred guineas from Paddy Hillery.
Ah, guineas………. dem was the days!!
