[Independent TD] Mattie McGrath getting a massively-overdue dragging on telly [Prime Time last night] – there is not nearly enough of this for the blethering bag of bulldung. No idea who she is though…

    Enjoyed! Would watch again. Whoever she is she should be on TV more often. Mattie’s response tells you all you need to know about what kind of person he is.

    Love matties response “maybe the honeymoon has gone to her head”. Thing is Mattie is right about enforcement, you could make the speed limit 20km everywhere and without enforcement its pointless having the limit. So in rural areas who’s enforcing it.

      How about people take some personal responsibility rather than expecting there to be a garda on every back road making sure nobody is speeding. And if they had a garda on every back round, the likes of Mattie McGrath would be complaining about victimisation of rural people by the bowsies in the the big smoke. Because everything is always someone elses fault.

    I have a solution that would stop 100% of the road traffic deaths……. just ban every sort of transport.
    If this seems like an absurd proposal, is it.
    There is risk attached everything in life, being under active may kill you, being overactive may kill you, et cetera. Her assertion that Matty is a bitter old man was out of order and the Host really should have said something.

      He is bitter though. He doesn’t actually stand for anything other than to be contrary for the sake of it.

    Can you imagine what Miriam’s reaction would have been if such an unwarranted personal attack if the genders had been reversed?

    The thing being missed is RELATIVE speed.
    Tearing down an empty lane beside a slow or stopped lane is pretty mad.
    Likewise for bikes and motorbikes going down the middle.
    Rushing into a gap not so great either.
    Watch your RELATIVE speed – leave a margin for Errol!

      Or the idiots in the overtaking lane of a motorway. When i use it and correctly move back into the left lane . Then you have the idiots who think because the lane is empty, its now the autobahn and do whatever speed they like

  6. Fact Checker

    To be clear, Mattie has eight children, has been elected three times to Dáil Éireann and has one national set-dancing competitions.

    I think it’s fair to say he has in fact achieved many of his life’s ambitions.

    Where’s the dragging? He remains in his chair.

    Does anybody actually use “dragged” outside of the Internet?

  8. Eoin

    What an irritating clip. I can’t understand a word out of Matties mouth. Stop mumbling man! Yer woman failed to make any argument and just went straight to personal attacks and Miriam failed to address either of them on these issues. Glad I don’t watch RTE.

  9. rotide

    I have no idea what getting dragged means but I assume it has something to do with the strawman personal abuse yer woman was throwing around.

    “I am speaking for the actual people of Ireland” – Some insuffereable unelected woman on TV who defintely does not speak for me, as opposed to Mattie McGrath – elected TD – who can actually say that.
