    If a man turned 60 would it feature on the front page of the Bindo? Such sexist, boring, basic bolloques.

          I hope the coat is just for the photo shoot. She’d never buy something that hideous, would she. She has turned 60, not lost her marbles.

      Sure when Shane McGowan turned 60 they sent the President of Ireland to present him with an award. If he hadn’t been a raging alcoholic would they really have done that? “Well done, can’t believe you made it this far” It’s drinkist!

        OK. Fair point. So why hasn’t Miriam O’Callaghan had a Late Late Special in her honour then, eh? I am sure ex-hubbie Tom McGurk would love that pub setting.

      The Indo is a rag. Miriam, Marian, Miriam, Rachel, Miriam, Rachel, Some unknown (yet a Celebrity), Miriam, some ‘Celebrity’ losing weight, Rachel, etc.
      As exciting as a meeting of accountants.

    Drug firms paying for Doctor’s jollies?! Since when was this secret? It’s been well known for years they’ve been at that.

    Old neighborhood of mine going back 20 years. Sales rep for big pharma making specialist cancer treatments Twice a year took top Irish Oncologists to Palm Springs on golf jollies. All expenses etc. He loved it. So did they.

      That’s how the filth do business in Ireland, aided and abetted by political filth and a daw jawed Irish electorate.

        Oh look another nuanced and considered comment from our political correspondent, Ron.

        I can’t wait to see what fresh insights you bring to 2020.

          It’s kind of hilarious watching you try to fit your entire vocabulary into one sentence. Well done you!

      It’s just a yearly reminder in ‘journalists’ diary. Same thing every year – and billed as “ Exclusive “

    3. curmudgeon

      Plenty of GPs do the same thing. IMO doesn’t like it when it’s brought up but they are the ones stopping us commoners getting their hands on meds at EU market prices and thus enabling doctors to be bribed and bought by big pharma.

    …whatever the UN believe their role to be in the Golan Heights they are merely a proxy force providing a buffer to protect the yank/zionist occupation…

    1. f_lawless

      ‘Piece Keeping Force’ is a more appropriate name – as in, helping Israel to keep a piece of Syria

    The Star headline has its international priorities right: ‘Machine gun guard for Love Islanders’. Better refer this WW3 military build-up to the UN Security Council asap.

      Nice intro GiggidyGoo – hasn’t anyone in Government read Irish history, talked to grandparents, or watched the movies, ‘The Wind That Shakes the Barley’, or ‘Black ’47’? The RIC/ Black and Tans and DMP were our own people who did despicable things to our own people in desperate times. Germany doesn’t commemorate the SS – I would parallel that with this. Shameful!

      1. Cian

        “The RIC/ Black and Tans and DMP were our own people who did despicable things to our own people in desperate times.”

        Not really. According to the article
        “10,936 Black and Tans and 2,264 Auxiliaries served in Ireland during the War of Independence.
        […] 883 Black and Tans were Irish-born and 126 Auxiliaries were Irish”

        So only 8% of the B&T (and 6% of Aux) were Irish.

        I don’t think it is fair to lump the RIC and DMP in with the Black &Tans and the Auxiliaries.

        1. GiggidyGoo

          ‘I don’t thinks it’s fair’ – echoes of Proper Charlie ‘they were only doing their job’.
          Are you a proud Irishman Cian?

          You FGers find new lows weekly.

          1. Cian

            Do you think that the RIC and DMP were the same as the Black &Tans/Auxiliaries?

            If so, why were the Black &Tans/Auxiliaries brought in?

          2. GiggidyGoo

            Tsk tsk Cian. Keep digging.

            BTW I notice you avoided my question as to whether you are a Proud Irishman.

          3. Cian

            Yes. I am proud to be Irish.

            I am not proud of everything that Ireland/the Irish does/has done.

            Your turn. Do you think that the RIC and DMP were the same as the Black &Tans/Auxiliaries?

          4. GiggidyGoo

            I never said they were. But they spied for them and supplied to them to enable atrocities against Proud Irish people.

            You seems to be proud of that.

  5. Ringsend Incinerator

    “Marian: the epitome of cool” – by ballsy dieter who stood in and was paid or her slot when she was on holiday. The pits.

  6. millie vanilly strikes again

    I can always lend you a synonym or three for your old favourite ‘daw-jawwd’, since that’s the only word you seem to understand with any certainty, darling.

    By all means offer something other than the pigswill you seem to think is an informed opinion. Somehow I doubt I’ll be waiting with baited breath.

    Author John Boyne in foolish spat over use of Auschwitz in book titles. The Auschwitz Museum weighed in stating: “The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas should be avoided by anyone who studies or teaches about the history of the Holocaust.” Jeez, it’s fiction – and if it piques curiosity and gets readers to explore further, it can only be a good thing. Get the poker out.
