    That would be *Peadar* Toibin, that mis-spelling above makes him sound dodgy.
    Be interesting to see how they do, they won just one local council seat out of 462 in the North a fortnight ago, getting 1.1% of the first pref votes across the North. They probably took votes off SF.
    I would be very surprised if Aontu gets more than 10 seats out of 949 here next week, but there are pockets of strong resentment by former Shinners who might see Aontu as their natural new home.

          Ainsley Harriot Thai chicken with lemongrass cup a’soup, tis only mighty for the hanger pang of an afternoon.

            Good somersault or bad somersault?
            Janet, your hangovers must be very different to mine. Raw fish and more booze is not the road I’d travel.

            A bad somersault, alas. Perhaps I have unfair memories of the cup-a-soup of yore. When I’m battling a particularly evil hangover I go to a greasy spoon that will serve me a large breakfast at lunchtime.

            Although Starbucks do a Brekkie roll (if ciabatta qualifies as a roll)
            Egg, rasher and sausage that’s been fierce handy lately
