Only The Tony


Tony Groves

Tony Groves, financial consultant, noted tweeter and Broadsheeet columnist, is taking part in the Dublin City Marathon at the end of the month in aid of Inner City Helping Homeless (ICHH).

And YOU can sponsor him.

Tony writes:

There’s over 8,000 people homeless, 3,000 of whom are children. Campaigns like #MyNameIs and the work of the volunteers at Inner City Helping Homeless have helped so many.
Please give whatever you can (at link below). It’s really needed and appreciated.

      Is that a sign of being a Prod? Crikey mackeroonie: I must rename myself Henrietta and start making preserves and gardening.

          Uh, oh. I definitely am one. Must remember to stop saying AMEN loudly after “and deliver us from evil”.

        Is Henrietta a proper prod name? I think it covers both extremes if you know what I mean ;-)

          You know what? I dunno. I used my mad google skillz and looked up “Irish Protestant Girl Names”.

        Have you ever made fig jam? They import very nice jams into Chez Max on Baggot St. I’m a divil for them.

            Figures, BB.
            Hey, I done-ded a word play. BOOM!

            Sounds delish. Nice on an aul slice of comté, I’d say.

            I’m starving. I bought my Christmas cake mix yesterday: must make it and start injecting it with brandy. Usually by Christmas it’s alcohol held together by a bit of fruit and a mush of cake.

    What rational are we using to donate homelessness as a crisis? Finland, with a population of 5.5mil has apparently solved its homelessness issue with the present figure of below 7,000. Denmark 5.7mil at 7,000. Norway 5.2mil at 6,300. Wales 3mil at 15,000. New Zealand 4.8 mil at 40,000. Ireland 4.7 mil at 8,000.

    Our figures are not perfect, anybody with no home is a tragedy but to donate it as a crisis seems sensationalist and if your running around calling everything a crisis without a rational point of reference, you serve only to desenstise people to what actually constitutes a crisis

        Good one, but then again what’s to expect from, the intellectual equivalent of a lighter and a bus shelter
