Quite The Spectacle


Did you stay in?

Thank you to, clockwise from top left: Marcel Kreuger, Olga Cronin, Neil Curran, celebrity accountant Vanessa Foran, Fionnuala KilleenPreposterous‘, Stephen Garland and Johnny Keenan.our panel on last night’s Broadsheet on the Telly.

The show, produced by Neil, can be viewed in its entirety above.

Amid a packed show, wise, stem cell-infused comic Stephen made a welcome return (and getting younger he is), while, proudly purpled Fionnuala, co-organiser with Michael Caul of the inaugural Danielle Carroll Summer School, took us through the itinerary of this weekend’s first ever sessions.

Named after a young homeless mother who died in emergency accommodation and set up in the wake of the MacGill gender balance controversy, the summer school will host two sessions  at the F2 Centre in Fatima, Dublin 8 tomorrow.

Streamed live (details here) , the sessions will include a keynote speech from Gemma O’Doherty and contributions from Kitty Holland, Anne Marie McNally and the ‘sheet’s Olga (yes, her off the telly!).

In other news, Marcel’s non-fiction book club is launched and why Johnny needn’t have gone to Specsavers.

    Whatever ‘Preposterous’ is taking to stay young, I’ll have a double helping. Michael O’Doherty is sulking down the Law Library right now in jealously.

    The rest should hit the gym. AirPods man I will let off as it could be the light.
