      Bon anniversaire Broadsheet.

      Now that Vincent Browne has ‘finally gone’ there’s a vacancy on TV3?

      But naturally, that job will go to a toad, a lick, or someone connected…..

    Happy Birthday.
    Although I mostly come here for the morning papers
    and for pictures of kittens and baby ducks,
    you are all lovely people and I’m glad I get to spend time with you.

    Happy birthday to you
    Happy birthday to you
    Happy birthday, dear Broadsheet
    Happy birthday to you.

        Are you a celeb Brother Barnabas?

        I came here when popbitch slowed down and coincidentally it’s shutting down this week…

        1. Brother Barnabas

          no, just occasionally steal bicycles

          I’d forgotten all about popbitch. haven’t looked at it in yonks.

            They’re having a big wake with all of the old contributors at the moment, very entertaining.

    1. Frilly Keane

      Can’t remember how I landed here
      Or exactly when
      But I know why I exited from my last nesting ground

          1. Bertie Blenkinsop

            No idea what you’re saying there unfortunately so I’ll just smile and nod :)

      Me being a blow-in, it was the Site Serv scandal that drew me here, when every other outlet in the land, including our state broadcaster were afraid of Voldemort. It was the ongoing romances of many commentators that kept me interested though…it’s like a goddamn orgy around here!

      1. LW

        Site serve as well. Often fantastic work here, the timelines especially are great. Thanks Bodger and crew!

      I was a backgound lurker/occasional visitor, but the Catherine Murphy-Redacted-DailPrivilege incident made me a regular of the place.

        1. mildred st. meadowlark

          Ah, bert, without our dear Cathy, we wouldst never have been fated to meet.

          Cathy for Taoiseach.

      *Ahem*…Ray Foley mentioned it on his lunchtime show years ago when he was on Today FM. That’s how I found it.

        1. Happy Molloy

          think it was jp who said he was addicted to looking at it. I used to listen on my lunchtime. are you still here lads?

    5. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

      I think I used to see links on Twitter to it, maybe? Fupped if I can remember, really.

      Researching blogging and social media in Ireland :) Stumbled upon BS…. and Just…
      Back…. :)

      some loser mentioned getting put into modetation on Broadsheet over at Twenty Major’s place..anyone remember that one dimensional pea-brain?
      he got a book published n nall..it was pretty sh*t really. It was about Twenty on holidays in Spain. lots of mentioning of Spanish streets..getting a suntan & then flying back home. Oh and everyone was a c*** in it.

    A seven year old public servant,
    Unpaid but immensely deserving,
    Transcended the mire to be line of fire,
    And yet, no surrender desire.

    Adding best birthday wishes to the clumsy rhyme. Delighted to be your contemporary, broadsheet.

    i am a great believer in birthday magic. your birthday is the one day if you make a wish, that it will come true if you want it bad enough. birthday magic also insulates you from the mundane – if you are open to it, something cool will happen to you today.

    so broadsheet, go do something safe in the knowledge that your birthday protects you from the usual nonsense that plagues our daily lives. go somewhere you’ve never been, do something you’ve never done, try something you would never ordinarily do.

    you could even start by not moderating perfectly reasonable jokes or comments :P

    happy brithday

    1. Brother Barnabas

      yeah – should have a moderation amnesty for the day that’s in it

      and a ‘sure where would you get it’ piece where we can all post photos of our mickeys

      1. I'm "alright" Jack. Mad Jack is on annual leave.

        Especially Frilly and Anne I want to see their Mickeys

          2. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

            I’d have gone for moist over damp. Moist is such a great word. Pronounced My-st (with a sly wink) rather than moy-st.

          3. Janet, I ate my avatar

            where is our auld pal moyste?
            happy belated birthday
            sorry I’m on me holidays

  5. The redundant Mickey Twopints

    Well done to all the crew at Broadsheet HQ. Even on the busiest days I take a few minutes to scan through the ‘sheet and catch up on events. The whimsical amusement, the cat pictures, the dodgy parking, suspect signage, things-that-look-like-Ireland, and faux-outrage was-it-for-this posts help to brighten up the day. The reportage, discussion, and analysis of some of our more important and newsworthy events and issues keep me coming back for more. I’m sure I’m not alone in despairing at what passes for honest reporting and critical analysis in much of our traditional news media – I don’t know of a platform better than BS for the sharing of alternative, sometimes incisive, views on current affairs.

    Well done on 7 years – tipping a glass mug of tea in your direction in celebration, and looking forward to 7 more!

    1. B Bop

      Superbly put Sir.
      Happy 7th Year dearest BS…only seems like yesteryear you were 1!
      Love B Bop.

    Happy birthday to you all, thanks for the great posts and the great laughs over the years. Keep it up.

  7. Murtles

    Birthy Hapday Broadsheet, onwards and upwards.
    Cue sporadic posting / housekeeping this afternoon as the champagne kicks in.

  8. TheFerg

    Congrats folks!!
    You don’t do yourselves justice for all of your excellent journalism – the Tuam babies, the murder of Fr. Molloy, the McCabe Inquest and at least 5 other stories where you annihilated every other publication in this country.

    Thank you,

    TheFerg, in London

    I was a 2011-2014 man. The anti water charge bollocks and general loony left stuff turned me off. Not to mention their shameful pro Trump stance.

    1. bisted

      …anti-water charge – guilty
      loony left – so I’m told
      pro Trump – nah
      anti-Hillary – defo

      …hooray…we’re winning…

  10. anne

  11. Daisy Chainsaw

    Been some sterling work from you lately regarding the Disclosures Commission among others.

    Keep it up and Happy Birthday!

  12. Hicksonian

    Thank you Broadsheet. You are Legend. Yis are just getting warmed up. 4 score and 7 years more please.

  13. mildred st. meadowlark

    This has turned into a full-blown party thread. Great job lads! Have a nice weekend :)

    Happy Birthday. I’m holding off celebrations till next month when the Cave of Three Bridges turns three (it really does seem longer than that.)

    Looking back on that archive link it occured to me how I much preferred the site when it wasn’t quite as cranky and agenda driven. I guess you can never go home though.
