    I always thought Watts was a daycent skin. Kept the head down, looked cool and played the drums with none of the bawdy shenannigans.

    (not that there’s anything wrong with bawdy shenannigans)

        …I don’t know why I feel so disappointed and betrayed when one time heroes put greed before principle but I felt really sad when the Rolling Stones played in Tel Aviv in support of the zionist regime…

    Ah Charlie. A quiet and reserved man. The John Paul Jones of The Stones. RIP.


    Also I see Tony has said concerts can go ahead for the vaccinated.

    Tony said…


    Just bypasses Micheal directly now so he does.

      But, but, but… wasn’t Micheál at the hurling final on Sunday with 40,000 other supporters?

      So, who’s in charge and who’s takin’n d piss?

      1. Steph Pinker

        Sorry, 39, 999 + VAT, expenses, cars, garda drivers, hoteliers, free food, drinks and… other supporters!

        There’s never a Rob_G or a Cian around when you need one – they’re like Gardaí… and buses.

          … and taxis… and winning lottery tickets floating in the wind of an Autumn afternoon…

          I feel a limerick coming on…

          Where’s Paulus when you need him?
          I use my ellipses like Bisted… etc…*

            You may think that there’s nobody cooler than
            Leo V with his talent to fool a man.
            But neither he nor Micheál
            Are at races at all
            When compared to the bould Tony Holohan.

          2. bisted

            …ah Paulus, we most times agree
            But why is it that people can’t see
            That NPHET merely advise
            While the politicos disguise
            Who make the decisions that affect you and me…

          3. Fergalito

            Tis a shockin’ auld state of affairs
            When forty thousand can go and see players
            Hit a small leather ball
            For glory or gall
            But I can’t disco and show off me new flares

      Or Tony saying that NPHET believes it’s okay for these events to go ahead and that the ball is in the government’s court?

      Micheal and Leo would love to say that Tony made the decision so they can blame him if it goes wrong (or accept the thanks if it goes well) but in truth, it’s up to them and the government to make that call and deal with the backlash.

    On several newspaper front pages the death of a rock star gets equal prominence as the frantic withdrawal of endangered people in Kabul.

    Formed FG TD and Minister sets up a media training business. I wonder how many businesses will give him credit. Yep, Ivan Yates thinks he knows it all.

    “Now everyone, repeat after me. Heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh” That one word, repeated over and over is the best weapon I had for covering up my inadequacies. It’s also a great way to rub it into the plebs”

    He knows all the best B&B’s in South Wales too.

    1. Bitnboxy

      Who cares about Yates? This is story that you gets you going GiggidyGums? Sounds like you lost a few Shekels on the Gee-Gees to Yates’ benefit when he was a Wexford bookie way back when. GiggidyGeeGees. Chortle!

    So it looks like vaccine passports are here to stay – nightclubs, all events and more set to be allowed for vaccinated only.

    No mention of PCR tests being added to vaccine passport – only country in Europe not to include it.
    The nanny state grows larger every day

      1. SOQ

        As you well know- PCR and antigen is not accepted for entry into bars. restaurants and soon gigs and clubs.

        The only thing which gives a decent indication of your infectiousness state is not accepted- but sure no one said there was common sense or logic to it all eh?

    “New Freedoms” ?

    I’ll stick with the old ones thanks: Including the right to breathe, assemble, travel, think and speak.

    All you NPHET clowns can feck off to your own sad little island.

    Good riddance

      1. ian-oG

        Too late Rosette I’m afraid. By the time you had replied hmmm had already succumbed to oxygen deprivation.

    Obstetricians and Gynaecologists strongly recommend Covid-19 vaccination for pregnant women

    The Institute of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists strongly recommends Covid-19 vaccination in pregnancy. Dr Cliona Murphy, Chair of the Institute and Consultant Obstetrician at the Coombe Hospital said: “Pregnant women are not at higher risk of contracting the virus but those that develop symptoms have a higher chance of hospitalisation and needing intensive care.

    “An increased number of pregnant women have been admitted to ICU in Ireland in the last six weeks and some have required emergency premature delivery. Intensive care admissions are prolonged for both mothers and babies”, Dr Murphy said.

    “The adverse effects of Covid-19 in the second and third trimester can be reduced by vaccination. Vaccine effectiveness and safety in pregnancy has been established with no increased risk of miscarriage, stillbirth or growth restriction. Couples trying to conceive should avail of vaccination first. Vaccines do not impact fertility. Having the vaccine is also safe for breastfeeding mothers” Dr Murphy said.
