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.

        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?

      @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.
