      Why can’t these psychopathic warmongers let those other psychopathic warmongers get on with their psychopathic warmongering in peace?

        1. Nigel

          Who new jusayinlike was the sort to accuse other people of supporting terrorists just because they disagreed with him? Isn’t that what warmongers do, to stoke fear and monger war? Yes it is! jusaynlike your rep for opposing warmongers is in tatters now. You selectively oppose some warmongers! What a surprise!

            May I remind you that you are the only one here who has expressed explicit approval for a particular military intervention? I haven’t. Nobody else has. You have,

    Examiner: Cork traffic ban. Nobody gives a poo.

    You have not only corps like Apple but you think the water network should also be managed from there because you are too important to travel to somewhere civilised… like Dundalk.

      Typical Dublin mentality
      Bet you would love your criminal gang shootings to move here?
      The purge against the car fight will start in cork as did the water protests
      Then you dubs will all follow suit like duty full sheep
      Absolute crazy mentality to reduce a city centre to this.
      A rates strike is well over due ,

      1. Bertie Blenkinsop

        “In the telling of the Easter 1916 story, Cork appears only on the margins. The reasons for this are not too hard to comprehend.

        Here was a county that had thought about mounting insurrection, then thought better of it. This failure to mobilise left an unpleasant aftertaste, becoming, for some at least, a source of abiding regret that bordered on embarrassment. It left behind it, Liam de Róiste, the Gaelic scholar and then leading local Irish Volunteer, wistfully recalled, a trail of ‘heart burning, disappointments, and some bitter feelings. The hour had come and we, in Cork, had done nothing’. In the circumstances, the decision to remain inactive – encouraged by the intervention by local bishop Daniel Colohan and Cork City Lord Mayor W. T. Butterfield – was an understandable one, wise even in view of the failed landing of German arms on board the Aud and the confusion created by the countermanding order of Eoin MacNeill which delayed for a day, and altered completely, the character of the Rising that eventually took place.

        In any case, with Dublin planned as the operational focus of the Rising, Cork was hardly alone in remaining remote from the fray. Yes, trouble flared in Galway, in Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford and in Ashbourne, Co. Meath, but so few were these locations and so limited was the fighting that it served only to underline the failure of the insurgents to ignite a wider rebellion across provincial Ireland.”

          Yet cork produced Michael Collins who lets face it was the leading figure in the freedom for Ireland,
          Well dev lets see.
          He was the Jew hating half breed who re emergrated back to Ireland
          He also organised the murder of Collins (some say)
          If you want to compare the size of your Mickey remember cork produced micky martin next tea shock

        FWIW david I disagree strongly with your stance on the car ban.
        If you need to drive through the very centre of a town in order to do your shopping, then that town’s at nothing.

        1. david

          But the city centre pays the biggest rates
          What do you want ?
          A city centre of pound shops effectively a ghost town which then becomes a vacuume for drugs and gangs or a vibrant city
          This will drive foot fall
          out of the centres and to shopping centres out of town
          Classic example is dunloghaire outside Dublin where eon Keegan traffic plan destroyed it leaving shop after shop closed
          Maybe ban access for cars for workers and limit deliveries to a certain time, maybe ban single occupant cars,i do not know exactly but this is an ill conceived move by pen pushers using some sort of gobble gook theories
          A very bad move

        I’m not sure what it is but whenever I read any of your posts I can on envisage one thing…. Standing behind your bar shouting “QUAAYAARS”……

          1. PlumBobSmearPants

            The “Bull” Davey has spoken;


            You see that man? The one with the appalling diction, repressed social attitude and viewpoint.

            That’s you that is…

            (There’s another classic comedy reference in there too. See if you can find it!)

            He won’t get it, and if by any chance he does, he won’t respond. He’s a spoiled brat of a man.

          3. david

            Actually plum
            I adore Dave MC savage
            The savage eye was possibly one of the best comedy programmes in Ireland
            He actually eats in my restaurant
            Love the mincer

          4. italia'90

            Just spat my afternoon coffee over the toolbox!
            I wonder where the Mincer got inspiration for that character from?
            Oh my.

      Ah Broadsheet…ground zero for the chips on the shoulder in relation to Cork….

      Here’s a thought, if you’re in Dublin and you want to stop subsidising the entire rest of the country you better hope Cork and Limerick can start pulling some more of their own weight. It’s not enough for us to say “they’re only small and insignificant”. They’re effectively our only hope.

        1. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

          Spoiler alert: I really don’t. Cork Shmork. But only people from Cork are allowed say that, obvs.

          1. david

            And you go on about my spelling and grammar punctuation
            Schmuck is not shmock
            Is that Dublin Gaelic for schmuck

          2. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

            ??? I wasn’t spelling schmuck. And I’m from Cork. Jaykers tonight.

        1. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

          I know. That shows a distinct lack of imagination. “Crusty” is the obvious one but maybe I’ll go with ermmmmmmm, hmm. What? Fusty? Doesn’t have enough of the “ick” factor, that. How and ever. I’ll go with it.

          1. mildred st. meadowlark

            Putrescent seems appropriately ick.

            Not quite as gick-inducing as suppurating, mind you.

    The Bank Of Ireland, as a major sponsor for Ulster Rugby, will have a rather sizable influence on whether Jackson and Olding are disposed of. Common sense looks likely to prevail, thankfully.

  3. Bernie

    They are indeed, BOI are also sponsors. It’s encouraging to hear this news after things went the way they did with the trial. Onwards and upwards.

  4. Mayor Quimby

    In other news, Otto Putland the guy George Hook referred to as a rapist has been cleared. You know the man false accused of rape by a woman who George thought should have been more careful.

    George and anyone else who referred to this man a a rapist should be on notice for legal action
