    That picture on the front of the Irish Examiner is absolute rubbish.
    Why hide the coffin,hearse and mourners behind a sea of blurred heads then blow the frame up to cover half the front page ?
    Is that really the best they can come up from a day replete with images of grief and mourning ?
    The Irish Sun and Irish Daily Mail nail it.

      I like the Examiner pic. It conveys a sense of the number of people affected by this murder: the family, friends and community left behind.

        Charger doesn’t care about it one way or the other Lilly

        just more cheap provocative nonsense in an attempt to engage others

        in the plain old days it used to be called trolling but I dunno in this case

        such is the symbiotic relationship between Broadsheet and it’s parasite that Attenborough himself might take an interest, who knows

        maybe facilitating it is a lazy modern way to encourage a smartphone generation into running up a bit of site traffic perhaps or maybe the chief of police here feels that there are good people on all sides or maybe……

        ah who cares I’m just a consumer really and all I know is I’m tired of it and I’m changing the channel now

          I disagree. Something so moving about all those people, heads bowed, making their way up the hill in that rural setting behind the hearse.

    AND the Sun manages to shoehorn a picture exclusive of the man under arrest into a packed but tasteful front page that’s half the size of the Examiner – along with images of poor Ashling, her boyfriend and the cortège.
    Quality tabloid journalism.

    It’s splattered all over front pages
    That some of the new Tory sages
    Are beginning to plot
    Just how to get shot
    And hope that it doesn’t take ages

    When the Star is accurate and politically aware on it’s front page which is also free of psycho gulls, cutlery botherers, and jackals.. then you know the UK is in very serious trouble. Very serious indeed.

      The UK in very serious trouble ?
      Not sure the good people of Ukraine would agree with you right now.
      The UK, Turkey and the US are the only countries prepared to come to their aid at the moment as Russia prepares to invade.
      The EU and particularly Putin’s pipeline poodle Germany standing by doing nothing.
      France and Germany even opposed activating NATO’s crisis response planning system late last year until Uncle Sam had a word.
      You need to brush up on your European history old sport.

        …is that the same Ukraine where a mob invaded the capital and the elected leader was forced to flee?

      2. TenPin Terry

        Of course Emmanuel Bonaparte has his own problems at the moment.
        A record 460,000 daily COVID cases despite Draconian restrictions being in place.
        Mon dieu as they say in La Bellend France.

    The people have spoken, the c5nts
    They no longer want Boris the dunce
    Get the fat fool ejected
    A new straw man erected
    He’s a pig-me in charge of the runts

    Do well-paid doctors REALLY need a €1000 bonus simply for doing their job during the pandemic ?
    How about supermarket workers and shop assistants who kept things open for months and served thousands of customers when there was no vaccine ?
    Perhaps our brave public sector workers like teachers who sat at home for a year on full pay doing sweet FA except top up their tans might like to organise a whip round.
