The Church of the Annunciation, Rathfarnham, Dublin 14
A [insert amusing collective noun] of taoisigh attending the funeral mass for former Taoisach Liam Cosgrave.
From pic 2: Bertie Ahern, Brian Cowen, Enda Kenny and Leo Varadkar.
A tribunal of taoisigh?
An “Incompetence” of Taoisigh
A spittle of Taoisigh
A Thickness of Taoisigh
A booboofest of Taoisigh
A Corruption of Taoisigh?
Cowen always looks like he just rolled out of bed…
What makes you think he didn’t?
Rolled in from a night out with ‘the lads’.
Didn’t his brother claim that Brian doesn’t really bother with the drink at all.
it’s no bother to him atall :)
tbh though…at one point in time I saw Cowen as a kindof Stevie Staunton figure..and now I’m defo no fan…but what we’ve had in the meantime has been every bit as bad. why do we always end up with drunk/dumb/dishonest Taoisigh? surely it’s supposed to be the post for the apex director & leader. I even personally know of 2 people I’ve worked under who would make any of the previous incumbents of the last 20 years look like utter amateurs. I just don’t get it. Where’s the quality?
That’s really true. There’s no shortage of people in this country with intelligence, acumen, wit, compassion, experience, drive etc. We have some amazing people. But I don’t see anyone like that in government… something’s wrong.
Perhaps it may not be the case now. But there was a pretty infamous story a few years ago, I remember, where our revered Taoiseach took to the national airwaves still drunk from the previous night.
I did read that Cathal MacCoille came out to say Brian Cowen hadn’t actually been drunk for the interview. But seven years have elapsed between then and now, so who knows? And why didn’t MacCoille speak out at the time?
gosh the moderators were more forgiving those days
Yeah, he certainly looks that way….hic
That’s not Cowen it’s Johnny Keenan
Cowen would be brilliant in an LCD Soundsystem tribute act – James Murphy looks like he just got out of bed 24/7.
Can’t see any other use for him.
The last one isn’t a real taoiseach, nobody voted for him..
You don’t really know how it works, do you?
Says the man with no frontal lobe
How many people voted for Cowen for taoiseach? Or was he not a real one either?
No frontal lobe either..
A beige of taoisigh.
You’d think with all the pension money Cowen and Ahern get they could afford clothes that fit them.
money can’t buy class, that’s why they are still shopping in Guineys
A Pomposity of Taoisigh…
a faeces of Taoisigh
A tosspot of …….. (alliteration)
A digout of Taoisigh…
In fairness, the money was only resting in that brown envolope.
It was resting behind ‘The Blue Door’
Christ I hope Biffo the human dirigible was tethered down.
I don’t think anyone’s funeral should be the butt of a joke.
Biffo’s butt ?
Ah come on, they’re dying to tell ’em.
Picture 3 looks like the cover of “The Mystery Of The Missing Pies”, by Enid Blyton
Those pies were earned fair and square.
Well, I suppose they weren’t going to eat themselves.
Is that bistro behind Leo any good?
What were the sandwiches like?
Very nice, apparently. There isn’t much choice around this neck o’ the woods though.
Very nice but parking is a nightmare
Tis great actually
I park there in that church yard btw
A black tie was in order
Sharing the same ignorant indifference as Bertie and Biffo no less
Well met the lot’ve ’em
The dude behind Leo in the double denim, hat and shades looks like a hit man.
We were trying to work out if his hat was also denim
A pension of taoisigh..
Scottser gets my vote. The winner :-)
Yes it was very good
What is with the look of phony upset for the cameras? Nobody looks like that all the time at a funeral. Even if it was a close relative. You can imagine the politicians practicing that face in the mirror all morning while trying out what tie to wear. They all look like they are trying to figure out how to push out a fart without making the fart noise.
The fupping state of Cowen, in fairness.
A Tie-shy Tosh of Taoisigh.
Enda the only one that wore one?
