      Exactly. Could just be looking at his phone, or some paperwork. Not without seeing the full clip could you tell for sure. No big fan either, but there’s no point in this kind of exercise.

      that clip is very short but to me anyway it DOES look like he has nodded off

      reading glasses up on the skull so he’s not intensely studying the laptop or some sheet of paper

      I have often been tempted to take a nap myself during some typical work-related bs bingo monologue but for a Govt. cabinet kingpin to do it (twice?) is a bit much

      not funny if true

        “reading glasses up on the skull so he’s not intensely studying the laptop or some sheet of paper”

        Amazing how you can tell from that 2 seconds of video whether he is short-sighted or long-sighted.

          Rob calm down don’t be so touchy
          I’m just offering an opinion (and it stands) thought I’d add something to support it that’s all, it isn’t meant to be scientific. I even said the clip is very short….ugh nevermind

      If we could only see if he is on his mobile or even to see if like Ming on his pod cast From Europe perched on the end of his bed if he too is just wearing jocks

    yep, i think broadsheet should take this down or at least the title ‘land of nod’. as its not clear if he is asleep.

      be probably got the swine flu vaccine ( sorry couldn’t resist, don’t start calling me an anti-vaxer )

    on debating if he’s asleep or not. i relaly think it doesnt matter if he even turns up. he’s a ghost in a suit. he doesnt do anything or make any difference, he’s literally there to make up the numbers. it wouldn’t matter if he just stayed at home.

    when Eamon got caught last year, it was obvious he was asleep as he was asked for his comments and was not responsive. this is just a still photo, unless broadsheet have a video to confirm, even then its not clear. cant understand why broadsheet hasnt taken this post down

    Looks like the mic is holding up his head ಠ﹏ಠ there

    Tell ye what tho’
    Managing all those high end big ticket Special Advisors has him knackered

    Maybe he needs an assistant or a team supervisor

    If he is asleep here, and I don’t know if he is, I’d be inclined to cut the guy some slack. Anyone falling asleep in broad daylight at work is obviously not getting the rest they need, for one reason or another.

      Why are people in this country so conditioned to make excuses and apologies for politicians? Eamon isn’t making 30 grand sitting in a cubicle looking at spreadsheets all day, he’s paid a very healthy salary to among other things, be held to a higher standard of behaviour than the average person. If he’s not up to the strenuous nature of the job – let him vacate the position and we’ll get someone else.

        I ask myself that all the time, all critical thinking must end or you are instantly labeled whatever silly phrase is in vogue

    Unfortunately for a huge number of people in this State, Nodding Ned is the minister of Communications, Climate Action, Environment, Transport, Tourism and Sport. Tens of thousands of people depend on these sectors for a living. This is serious business. This fella should be run out of town. Or maybe he is exhausted from his efforts in getting rid of an Irish Trade Commissioner in Europe.Thats what I call treason.

    Perhaps if the government had more Ministers of the calibre of the useless Eamo’ Ryan of the Greenwash party less damage would be done to the economy. The nice civil servants under his employ could just continue to throw him photo opportunities of freshly painted bicycle lanes and reply “climate change” to all his questions to keep him and his cult followers happy.

    Seriously if his behaviour is not an outright insult to tax payers and the most excruciatingly embarrassment for the off-shoot Just Transition Greens I would be very surprised. Still his masters FFG must be so happy having a stooge.
