      If only. There was a long queue. Who was he anyway. Same MO as guys in the UK who lured vulnerable children (and perverse adults) into similar situations.. (oh, sorry, that’s proven false with the whistleblower sentenced to 18 years) .. the truth is: we will never know the truth.. except the abuse will continue.. ‘let those who harm the children be bound in chains and thrown into the deepest lake’ (JC.. years ago)

      Pics of Elizabeth and her son Andrew remind me of the Madness of King George.

    As for Tyrone.. Harte, it’s long past time to move on. Looked like they’d rather bow out today than give Dublin a game. Even getting whacked will be seen as a victory for the boys from Kerry.. that’s why there Kerry.. Tyrone.. wipe your eyes..

      I coach u8 and u10 hurlers and one thing I try to instill in them is to be gracious in victory as well as defeat. You clearly missed that lesson.

        Sure soir, ‘tis fierce noble of you. And tell me soir, when you’re teaching the little ones graciousness do you also teach them insufferable sanctimonious dangling man parts as well.. or do you hold that back for yourself.. just asking for a friend..

      No doubt that the Battle of Barrow Street will be on the agenda. I wonder will GOD and FPOL get mentions.

        Yes that suggests he was waiting for the right moment but also, that he wasn’t in cahoots with the photographer. As for the other guy- ‘did you get that?’ would be a pretty common reaction I think.

        No mention why he was hanging with the Fascists from way before the march arrived of course.

        The other post by Who’s ThatBuer (Limerick?) is a bizarre video called ‘swish’ which I assume is something to do with drag queens. “Casting a spell of degeneracy on our children..” sez he- sounds like just a child himself

        And you happened to stumble across this how?

    Could Nora Quorin have been sleep walking, I wonder? Strange surroundings, jet lag, heat and humidity… disorienting for anyone.

    Talks between beef farmers collective (where is the IFA?) and the beef processors today. For there to be any success, the government will have to give yet more money to the beef farmers on top of the €100m that FG and Phil Hogan bribe offered the week before the European Parliament elections.

    Euro loses ground against the Pound, down to 92.5p this morning after Boris breaks his #1 promise not to meet with an EU leader about the Brexit withdrawal agreement UNLESS the backstop was abandoned. Boris will meet Leo in Dublin in the next 10 days and Leo is adamant the backstop is staying. Do the markets think this heralds the dawning of common sense in Downing Street?

    Police State Britain on the front pages of the British papers. Social media and internet companies will face huge fines for failing to remove content deemed unacceptable by the government. And more money for prisons [that’s not mentioned specifically but Boris is committing to keeping criminals in jail for longer so that’s a logical consequence].

    The Guardian reports that the maker of the Cystic Fibrosis drug Orkambi is to make $21 billion profit from the drug.

    You’ll recall the Irish government overruled the independent body in Ireland which examines cost/benefit of drugs after it was strong-armed by lobbyists for the CF community. How much are we paying in Ireland for Orkambi? Who knows.

    In England, their independent body says “no” to Orkambi. In Scotland, their independent body is to make a decision later today.

        I’d love to know how beneficial Orkambi has turned out to be. CFI were selling it as a wonder-drug when they were trying to get it approved. I hope it is as good as they were making out it would be….
