Is it Yourself?


’tis one.

Last night.

The Irish Embassy, London.

Britain’s Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, greeted above by Minister for Foreign Affairs Simon Coveney, was guest of honour at a St Patrick’s dinner to celebrate Irish artists in Britain.



Prince Charles meets actress Fiona Shaw and comedian Dara Ó Briain .

Nothing is that funny.

Off your knees, quislings.

    Supposed to be a colossal willyhead in real life, Dara Ó Briain that is, not Charley (he seems nice actually).
    Stewart Lee said once that he got the impression that Dara sees himself as the self appointed lord mayor of British comedy. He looks like he see himself as an Irish ambassador too. What is it with these self Bono, Bob types? None of Dara’s output is entertaining in the slightest. I don’t know how he is still around.

      Well it’s not entertaining to you that’s different. Do you understand that Pat? Things you like, others might not and vice versa. I don’t particularly like or value most comedy and don’t like comedians lecturing me. Stewart Lee is a pain in the hole too.
      Looks like Adrian Dunbar there in the picture as well.

        With blondy streaked hair? I see that the new series of Line of Duty is coming soon. Probably after Shetland finishes. WOO HOO!

        I remember seeing one of his shows on telly (about 10 years’ ago now) – the entire show was him asking questions to the audience and making up material on the spot. Pretty impressive.

    I like Fiona Shaw.

    Except now I’ve an awful goo on me to watch the Butcher Boy.

      1. millie st murderlark

        I’ve been meaning to watch that. I love Ruth Wilson, and I thought it sounded fascinating, considering she was playing her own grandmother. Is it any use Hoop?

          It sure is if you like well-acted dark-ish British dramas as I do Mills – if they’re in period even better. I still have the story in me noggin. Grab yourself a wet afternoon (plenty coming up), pour yourself a large one and shtick it on.

      A fellow Corkonian. She went to my school, actually. Only famous person who went there, really.
      She was great in Killing Eve. I saw her playing Electra too. Fantastic.

    How jolly. Was the Getty photographer shown the door before they could capture the moment Karen Bradley made her entrance last night to be warmly welcomed by Coveney with a smile and handshake? No? You’ve got to hand it to those special advisers, the National Enquirer with its “catch and kill” antics has nothing on them.

        That’s very kind of you Rob, you’ll love what I think they’re giggling about above. I imagine Charles Windsor has become a Wily E Coyote character trying to off his road runner mammy so that he can finally ascend to the throne. Maybe he was regaling his audience with his latest Acme-facilitated attempt to take the crown. “And having gone to the trouble of cutting the brakes, wouldn’t you know it, it turned out it was pater behind the wheel of the Range Rover. Double drat!”

      NYT confirmed she was there and had meeting with Coveney alas no pics.

      ‘Several hours after her initial remarks, Ms. Bradley had a scheduled event at the Irish Embassy in London with Ireland’s foreign minister, Simon Coveney. At the meeting, he told her that Ireland was opposed to any amnesty for so-called legacy killings, whether carried out by state or nonstate actors.‘

    Someone obviously asked Charlie – Colonel-in-Chief of the Parachute Regiment – what the odds were of anyone in ‘1 Para’ being convicted next week when the UK Public Prosecution Service will decide whether soldiers involved in the Bloody Sunday killings in 1972 will face prosecution.
    Also, Dara O’Brien is not remotely funny – that’s why he left Ireland.

      I do admire his gumption in flashing his UCD Science degree at the BBC in order to get some science presenting work.

      “Also, Dara O’Brien is not remotely funny – that’s why he left Ireland”

      I’m trying to understand/make sense of what you mean with that sentence. Are you saying that if he was actually funny he would never have left Ireland?
      He left Ireland and made millions in the U.K.. I don’t find him funny either, but plenty of people do and he regularly sells out shows when he comes back here as well.
      Good luck to him

      1. Johnny

        It’s called an opinion,which part “Mel” are you struggling with ?
        You keep saying you don’t find him funny,so why the knee jerk reaction to any criticism of him and the rush to defend him,he’s not funny,the end.
