Let Us Play


This morning/afternoon.

St. Audoen’s Park, Cook Street, Merchants Quay, Dublin 1

Minister for Children and Youth Affairs Katherine Zappone with Lord Mayor of Dublin City, Mr. Paul McAuliffe and Joe Duffy the Launch of the 1916 Children’s Commemorative Play Garden, a joint initiative between the Department of Children and Youth affairs and Dublin City Council.

Inspired by Mr Duffy’s book Children of the Rising, the idea to remember the 40 children who died in 1916 with a play garden came from young people from across Ireland who took part in special consultations.

Now to Tuam…

      Agreed, the very few times I have heard snippets of Liveline, he sounds almost deranged, trying to rile people up for the sake of ratings, talking over them and being quite rude.

      He might be on a high salary but he is definitely on the lower end of the class scale when it comes to broadcasting.

    De people who should normally have a voice musn’t be the same people who ring Liveline. Some right sneery elitists on Broadsheet these days.

      They come off worse than the ‘it’s a bloody disgrace Joe’ type caller. And those callers don’t ring that often these days.
      Joe has his quirks but I think Liveline isn’t that bad. It’s actually done some good.

      I think the worse that can be said about is that it’s been around so long, and it’s done it’s job/remit so well, and built up such a following among the nation, that it’s become a kind of pressure valve for the political system/political class;
      i.e. the nation ring in, they bitch and moan about little genuine grievances that haunt them every day, a bit of pressure is relieved, and the status quo remains intact (the overall system doesn’t change.)

  2. Slarty Fat Bast

    I wondered where he’d sloped off to.
    Might have guessed he was getting in a plug for his buke.
    A buke written at Irish licence-payers’ expense and printed in Germany.
    The slime stops for no one.
