    Sadly I can never catch these live, but I do get the later podcasts.
    Fun fact: my Dad is a Corkman, and knew Eddie’s dad. I am not sure exactly how, but they did play rugby together at one time.. I think he said Mr Hobbs was flyhalf, while my Dad (who was never much taller than I am,) was a prop, of all things!

    My Dad was really upset when Eddie’s dad died.

    Shane Ross gave a decent account on Prime Time last night. No need for Eddie Hobbs (was there mentions on an earlier story about snake oil salesmen?)

    I remember Eddie’s program on tv. He went into a school in Dublin determined to sort out its finances. He was going to slash waste and increase revenue streams by offering after school programs etc. The outcome? He congratulated the Principal and Board for running a tight ship and called on the government to increase funding for the school.
    It was good to see that he recognized the work schools do on shoe string budgets. It’s a pity that this outcome didn’t get more attention.

    I wouldn’t like to be recognised as, or labeled with a singular title such as ‘Economist’, it’s too perfunctory.

    Eddie Hobbs. Hasn’t he been discredited enough, without being further denigrated by a broadsheet appearance?
