  1. Not On Your Nelly

    The Sunday world is not healthy for you. If you buy and read a paper like the Sunday world you aren’t helping.

    Sewer press isn’t strong enough.

    News as entertainment, we are a depressing lot. Thankfully broadsheet isn’t entertaining. Or sensationalist. Or employing conspiracy theorists.

    Don’t buy the Sunday world.

      Or employing conspiracy theorists.

      This gave me an actual laugh

      Do you even read this site?

        I believe there’s a healthy dose of irony in that comment that you may not picked up on.

        Blame it on the hour. Or the chocolate. I’ve had at least one easter egg.

      In theory. Meghan seems nice but I’d imagine she’s had her share of bridezilla horrors. Chocolatier, now there’s a nice job.

    1. PlumBobSmearPants

      Indeed all. I’m off shortly for a nice run around the Black Island and then ima gonna stuff my face with hot cross buns and Easter egg. At the same time.

      Happy Easter.

    So now, the escalating homeless crisis (its a crisis now according the Boy Leo), is due to teens. What’s next weeks excuse?. Prime Time, 29th March, on the RTÉ Player, approx 28 minutes in, shows exactly how much a handle Murphy has on this. If you don’t want to listen to it, the quick answer is that he has absolutely no handle on it and he and his attempted spin was made to look foolish in full view of anyone who was watching. It’s worth a watch though.

      This really is an Aprils fool from the fool himself
      What next from little Leo verruca’s Ireland has talent cabinet
      What amazes me is so few people are outraged enough to stand in solidarity and march for the homeless.
      Ireland really has become devoid of feelings.
      Remember if Brexit ends up a disaster and interest rates start climbing even half of what they were in the eighties ,many will not be able to afford their payments then too they will be subject to eviction .
      We are all one step away from homelessness

    I didn’t realise there was a thing about fat GAA refs – but thanks for that, oh The Sunday Times?

  4. Clampers Outside!

    All this bad n’ sad news could get one down, so I’ll share my good news that I’ve been keeping quiet… well, no one has asked for a couple of years if I was single or not… I’m not :)

    And I’m off down stairs now to prepare Mrs Clampers-to-be a hearty breakfast.
    Been engaged since last year, and getting married later this month :0)

    No… this is not an April Fool ! Happy Easter y’all !

    1. Shayna

      Funny, I’d often not wondered if you were single Clampers? You seem great, congratulations and all the rest of it!

          1. Frilly Keane

            See that Ronan Maher sideline?

            You won’t see many ah’ them in the Ulster Championship

            Christ those Tipp lads will be murder now coming up to the MC

          1. bertie blenkinsop

            I can see it now….

            Clampers: “I do”

            Nigel shouting from the congregation: “Oh no you don’t!”

          2. Nigel

            It’d be like the end of The Graduate, me banging on the door, Clampers fleeing the altar, the two of us running out and hopping on a bus then long lingering camera shots of us both going hang on what did we just do.. ?

          3. Brother Barnabas

            have image now of Nigel and Clampers spooning in a post-coital glow in a b+b in dunmore east, trying to decide how best to break the news on broadsheet

          4. mildred st. meadowlark

            But they’d hug it out in the end and that would make the 10,000 word argument so worth it.

          5. Nigel

            My favourite is where we’re in a carriage traveling through a wild storm and we’re roaring and shouting at each other furiiously over some obscure political/cultural point nobody else cares about and then we arrive at the inn and the innkeeper regretfully informs us alas he only has one bed…

            I mean. It would be. If someone were silly enough to write such tripe. Er.

          1. Frilly Keane

            What’s your problem wi’ the Déise Low’tide?
            I think it’s a grand spot

            Wouldn’t rule it out meself

    2. Frilly Keane

      Hon’ de’ Clamp


      ‘suppose you’re leaving it ta’ me t’ tell Fluff

      I’m not sure how I feel about this.

      On one hand, I find happiness for you, but I find myself very concerned your views will no longer be your own once the day of joy has passed. I fear in future your comments will start with phrases like “we feel…”, “we find that offensive…”, or just a painful “that’s hardly something we’d agree with”.

      I fear my vision of you as a thinker, a young man wise beyond his years, holding a wisdom born through a life of servitude to knowledge, relentlessly seeking more information, will fall to a vision of a servitude her, who’s great wisdom will fade to pitiful obedience.

      “I’m off down stairs now to prepare Mrs Clampers-to-be a hearty breakfast”….

      I take my hat off, as our king is dying. As a tribute, I will start many comments with “As Clamps once said…”, but the period of ‘once’ will be a fading memory.

      1. Clampers Outside!

        Awww… that’s sweet in an odd way Owen :0)
        In fairness, we did have a couple of years of courting where things hadn’t changed, so there is hope! :)

        Thanks again !

        1. Frilly Keane

          Well Clamp
          You’ll not get a grander Broadsheet send off than that

          OAP Queen will be wanting details about the frock and bridesmaids etc

          And Scottie will be interested in the Cake
          To see who’s is bigger
          It’s a man thing – don’t ask me

    4. Spaghetti Hoop

      Congrats Clampers on your clamping. Hope the ring was vividly yellow. Post up the venue and time and I’ll do my best to make it.

        1. Frilly Keane

          Marrying a yellow belly Clamps?

          They’re not too popular down there in the Decies
          Not lately anyway

    5. mildred st. meadowlark

      Ah Clamps!

      How utterly lovely. Congratulations to you both. I hope you’re both very happy :)

      Happy Easter me aul flower

  5. SOQ

    Thats a nice dress Vogue is nearly wearing?

    Oh and congrats Clamps. Obvs you will have to get permission before posting on here then.

      1. Shayna

        I could perhaps contribute to the best man’s speech and offer a controversial comment, or two? Mind you, The Irish Times might be there – it may not end well. All the best!

    The car finance bubble is a Doosey
    Will we start to see massive repossessions of cars leading to pretty cheap motors on the second hand market?.

    1. anne

      Petty stuff again from the Irish Time.

      She didn’t talk about the case again..are they fupping thicks or what?

        1. SOQ

          Irish News would be the second largest in NI. By saying that she was told to shut up she did mention it, but only to say that she was not to mention it.


          Is there any pictures of Paddy Jackson in states of undress online btw? Doubt if I’d need his ‘consent’ to ogle. Given his fondness for team sports, I’m sure he won’t mind anyways.

          1. anne

            She was told to shut up about the trial, not told shut up about being told to shut up.

            She got the comments deleted & hasn’t mentioned the trial…If she mentions that stupid article, will they write another article about her mentioning their article? And on & on we go with nonsense.

            Re the top shagger in a state of undress..I just had my sunday lunch not too long ago. Please.

          2. anne

            You probably do need his consent to ogle him btw. The cooky little so & so doesn’t seem to get that people can believe whatever they want. You’re not disputing anything saying you believe her. Him & his lawyers are not thought police.

          3. SOQ

            If anyone can dig da pics, its da gays.

            What a complete spanner Joe McVeigh presented himself as. He strutted out like a peacock on steroids. Pretty sure his neo-nazi ad-lib will cost both him and his employer.

    2. jusayinlike

      The National fake news outlets have broadsheet.ie in their sites..

      Wailing for their beloved data commissioner..

      1. SOQ

        Please. Now is not the time for that nonsense. The gays are having a competition as to which best Jackson picture gets a free drink in Pantibar?

        He is a porn star after all.
