      I would have agreed with you, but you know, it’s hard to stand up for something and get that abuse so I’m moving him out of the donkey column on my spreadsheet, for today at least.

        Ronan Mullen stands up for what he believes in and attracts universal abuse. Where is he situated in your chart?

      This bit gave me a laugh. I don’t think I’d ever seen it written like that before!

    Old man feels better after trolling minister by snail mail.
    “Jaysus Tommy you’re a ticket” says his friend Paddy in the local
    “I know Paddy, hard as nails I am” says Tom as he orders his eight pint. “That’ll be my last as I’m driving” adds Tommy.
    “Hah, chamber pot” chuckles Paddy as he checks his watch. Mary should have the dinner ready soon. At least she better.

      I heard lots of drivers got the horn on Wednesday in Malahide. Was that you holding the sign at the junction?

        Wednesday was the lovely girls :)
        I was there Thursday;)
        Portmarnock last night, a grand run of horns amid a few less charming reactions

          actually I was there
          So tired I thought today was Saturday
          actually that’s an excuse I always mix up Thursday and Friday:)
          Prosecco anyone ?

      A pet hate of mine. It’s not hard to figure out. Simple laziness.

    Tom’s obituary will eventually describe him as:
    “Active in the parish, a daily communicant and a pillar of the community”

    Mr Smith signed the letter, more than can be said for the majority of the haters here.

    If it was anonymous I could give Dooley a pass for releasing it, as it stands Dooley fails.

    You are “an agent for the devil” and “as ugly as mortal sin”
    “it’s a pity that you were not aborted as your good for nothing”

    I have to say this is priceless top shelf stuff, it reads like a dodgy plenty of fish reply.
    Can anyone tell me what the first word of the last line is or supposed to be? The one before troublemakers and criminals. By the way, is arguably right on those two points.

      On a serious note, Timmy Dooley made a mistake in publishing this letter or at least the name attached to it.

      It is quite likely that Tom Smith did not write this letter. Rather it was possibly written by somebody looking to get a rise out of Smith and troll him.

    a couple of people in a shop last night discussing the ref. all were no voters. One fella reckoned the yes campaign was an elitist movement trying to keep the population down…

      How did he know? That was supposed to be classified, top secret info.
      Also, where can roubles be changed for euro? Asking for a friend.

      Its true when they say that you cannot use logic to change a persons opinion if their opinion is not based on logic in the first place.

      I understand people have their reasons for voting yes or no and there reasons should be respected. But it is infuriating when people vote for reasons that make absolutely no sense.

            Lidl for the big shop, SuperValu for the bits.

            I’m not a fan of the fruit and veg in Lidl. It’s usually furry and/or black by the time I get home.

          2. Martco

            Lidl/Tesco for basics
            Shop local for veg/meat
            Fruit is Marks n Sparks (I’ve never figured it out but they seem to have all the A grade fruit by a mile)
            Supervalu if I’m stuck for M&S tho the superquinn sausages are long gone
            & never ever likes of Donnybrook fair

            I thought you’d be M&S Mildred?

          3. Starina

            fallon & byrne when i’ve been paid and i want really flavourful fruit n veg. yumm. lidl/aldi otherwise and an occasional crossing of the perma-picket line into Dunnes.

          4. mildred st. meadowlark

            I know! I thought I would be too. Clearly I’m not as posh as I thought I would be.

            I try to shop local where I can too. We’ve great greengrocers and butchers where I live, and the SuperValu do top notch cream cakes.

            M&S can feck off with their fancy ads and delicious cookies.

    Its refreshing to see that the incorrect usage of your and you’re trancends both generations and communications media.

    Oul’ TD Dooley played a blinder in the campaign

    Keep an eye on what he does next
