      The George and Panti Bar are literally overflowing with lots of excited tourists.. less undercover and more covered I’d wager.. stay safe

    “I won’t be shouted down by the anti pope brigade” sez victoria white…you have to laugh at these people constantly attempting to portray themselves as victims.

      Headline’s making me want to find out where she’ll be for the visit and shout her down. She’s a right-wing crank in green party clothing.

        And card carrying CoI. Brainwashed is brainwashed. Or whatever the equivalent is for someone of no brain..

    Dublin wall of remembrance for children who died in Ireland’s mother and baby homes, situated in Temple Bar, is covered up in preparation for the Pope’s visit. The wall bears the names of 796 children placed in a septic tank on the grounds of St Mary’s Mother and Baby Home in Tuam, Galway.

    According to the Facebook comments, a woman from Ballyfermot drove down and took down the net covering that had been placed over it.

      The reason it was covered up was because of the “Mannix Flynn is a disgrace” comments written on his personal headvvank about the Artane Boys. The netting is there to protect the York Street Flats telfon don.

      One of the comments:

      “It’s been covered up to add a new piece to it in protest to the Popes visit. The people who organised it in the first place covered it. It will be unveiled later today.”

    JP2 came to Ireland – late 70s ,he was all over Phoenix Park, I got a “Body of Christ” consecrated by the Pope – somehow it was different from the regular local Sunday variety.
    I stood for maybe 3 hours to receive Holy Communion from the Pope – delivered to me by an angry nun. That was the day I became an atheist.

      Hurd ye’ve sorted a special papal sum’ting for yerselves in Croke Park Shayna
      A pre miraculous event type invocation and early dedication

      Part of yere AI prep
      All this holy spirit stuff
      I suppose
      Although baten’ Dublin will have’ta be recognised as a Papal miracle

      Even I’ll have ta bless meself if that happens

        Il Papa Fransico will make the turf hallowed. Only ye whom are blessed shall raise a chalice of glory – yikes – that’s Tyrone (I completely made that up). I’m thinking that Tyrone will be down by 8 points at half time – second half – same. The Dubs by 8 points. Except that the Pope thing that I made up – Tyrone by a last minute goal, probably by Colm Cavanagh, the hardest working mid-fielder in Ireland – no-one would dispute his goal in my imagery?

        1. Shayna

          We’ve three Clonoe O’Rahillys (my club) men, Declan McClure, Michael O’Neill and Conor McAliskey. “First in the field and last to leave” – an inscription in Clonoe Graveyard. The Dubs of course are favourites – but they drew already with Tyrone – it’s going to be closer than the pundits may call. Last minute goal?

          1. Monaghan Man Ultan

            Is that Mickey Harte fundamentalist receiving a personal papal blessing from the head of the Army Council of the IRA (I raped adolescents)?

            I’ll enjoy eating my kitkats the day that creep is exposed by Dubs by a banner about his support for the Catholic Mafia.

            F*** the Gaa.

    ” Chuck Chequers ”
    For a man who is meant to be stuck in the 18th century the Moggster sure knows how to come up with a 21st Century soundbite.
    The Moggster and Boris – what a combo to gladden the hearts of proud Englishmen everywhere.
    Makes Liability Leo and Cuckold Coveney look like the Chuckle Brothers
    It’s happening folks.

    1. Monaghan Man Ultan

      Good. Couldn’t happen to a nicer second rate gig in Europe. You’re well around the S-bend.

    2. ReproButina

      Food shortages, motorway car parks, grounded flights, it’s happening!

      Poor Ollie. You’re like a dog being taken to be neutered bragging about the great car ride you’re going on.

    3. Cú Chulainn

      Here Ollie, did you know that your namesake died after being bitten by a midge in Youghal, Co. Cork..

    More identity politics BS from Corbyn. BBC staff to declare their social class. Utter nonsense.

    1. deluded

      Is a class system not “identity politics”?
      I mean, is exclusion based on identity not the point of “identity politics”?

      1. MaryLou's ArmaLite

        But who says there is exclusion in the choice of presenters at the BBC. They have quite a number of Black and Asian presenters. I know they speak in a certain way, but they are trained to do that.

        What would happen if it was found the the BBC had a lack of Jewish presenters, would Jeremy be out to bat for them?

        1. deluded

          I don’t know, who says there is exclusion? Maybe there’s not!
          I’m not an authority on Jeremy.
          I was just curious as to what you thought “identity politics” is about.
