This morning.

And he reassured listeners that Ryan will “hopefully” be well enough to present this week’s Late Late Show.

Speaking on RTE Radio 1 this morning, Oliver explained: “Ryan has had a persistent cough over the last few days and he’s getting it checked out so no need to worry.

    If we really have single tier health system now as they are saying then Ryan won’t have his test results back by Friday.

      We get it. You dislike ‘gobby little girls’… They should stick to make up vids on YouTube… amirite?

            btw you are making it sexual not me, the term can be used as a form of admiration too
            The term ‘crush’ gets thrown around a lot. It can mean that you simply have a passing infatuation with someone, or that you really like him or her. The Friendly/Platonic Crush (sometimes called a “squish”): It is important to remember that not all strong feelings are romantic, some of them can be platonic as well :)
            you should keep your mind out of the gutter

            Oh go have a choc ice and calm yourself.

            There is NOTHING wrong with me having a fancy for Janet. Or my long-standing from a distance love affair with Bertie.

            Well, who doesn’t love kittens?

            I really should be working but this is much more fun and far less productive.

      I think you might be confusing how the media reports on people of interest / recent popular media stories and how some people will do anything to get into the spotlight.

      Greta Thunberg represents the youth and their voice against the failings of the supposed adult policy makers.

      I don’t think, for better or worse, she has much choice in deciding to retire from public attention.

      I don’t know how you could have added 1 + 1 + 1 and got “bitter fruitcake” as the answer? Maybe personal reasons at play there..

    I believe Tubbs is self employed . At least he will now be to describe to listeners after the crisis how he survived on the 306 euro a week …

    Im sure he has savings, he will be grand ….

    I wonder what the real story was with him and the really cute RTÉ science presenter. Do any women find him sexually attractive?

      Ah here

      There’s no need to add that notion to our self isolated day dreams

      That’s like a
      Mary Mitchell O’Connor would ya

      Aren’t we all in this together

    I hope Derpridy get’s sick enough, without it being too serious or life threating, that he has to take enough time out that allows him, by choice or otherwise, to reflect on all the times he used his privilaged position and moderate amount of talent on the radio to hijack guests and ambush them on behalf of the church, the state media propaganda machine and the establishment for the elite first narrative…

    e.g. Dawkins vs iona institute of eejits + Derpridy
    -Speaking of people I’d almost like to see suffer endlessly for their constant bile…

    Wasn’t he in a studio with the head of the HSE and others leading the fight against covid-19 only last Friday week?

    Oh Dear. Tubs has replaced the plank as a figure of hate. who knew . ? Self isolation is having it’s effects I see

    1. :-Joe

      You’d have to have some kind of emotional connection or attachment to say it’s out of hate, a very strong word indeed but he’s definitely due a slap or two from physics / karma, etc. -take your pick.


      1. Cian

        Why would “the branch of science that deals with the structure of matter and how the fundamental constituents of the universe interact” want to slap Tubs?
