Their Finest Hour



This afternoon.

Newbridge, County Kildare.

Members of the Irish Army Cadet help out a motorist while public has been warned to say indoors from 4pm today until 12 noon tomorrow as Storm Emma meets the so-called ‘Beast from the East’.

The National Emergency Coordination Group said its decision was made because of the “serious and life-threatening conditions” which may be posed by the extreme weather.

    Anybody outside after 4 should be shot on sight. It’s the only solution.

        Maybe they are down for crowd control when the UN disperses loaves of bread to the refugees in newbridge

    Varadkar and Keogh taking credit on Twitter for the work done by the DF. But when it comes to paying or equipping them it’ a different call.

      I do not get the back packs as they work
      What are they carrying in them a tent?
      A packed lunch?

        Your personality.

        If you write a politely-worded letter (that means full sentences and proper punctuation) they might let you have it back.

        I like to keep a hard boiled egg in my handbag
        a pen, a Swiss army knife, a packet of tissues, some almond fingers, Brazil nuts and chanel no.5

    About time they got off their bottoms and provided the citizens return for the money paid to keep them

    Its now 8.02 it seems Emma has lost her way in west cork or is a bit tardy
    Great news but in reality the government has shut down the country ensuring businesses have lost thousands of euro
    Only gentle snow fall not even a harsh gush of wind
    The biggest danger is that any credibility if Armageddon dose not happen is in tatters and like in the boy who cried wolf when something of major danger and destruction happens no one will believe it
    But who will swallow the millions upon millions lost by businesses ?
    I think a major Michael fish event is going to happen
    Leo the cheques in the post varadka’s band of dim bright young things have created total paranoia over this and questions must be asked

      No man should stand before the moon
      To make sweet song thereon
      with dandified importance,
      his sense of humour gone….

      Give it a rest.

      Take that enormous chip off your shoulder for two mins. I’m sure its the back ache making you crabby.

        did you ever hear the like? a lad complaining that the worst snow storm for decades wasn’t severe enough?
