Ah here.

Many people believe it’s in bad taste’ – Presidential hopeful Gavin Duffy receives backlash over Fleadh posters (

Curracloe Beach. County Wexford.

A large section of the sand dunes on the famed Curracloe Beach in County Wexford, still bear the scars of the fire which swept through them on the 22nd of July, during the height of Ireland’s Summer heatwave.

It is believed the fire started from a disposable BBQ. Today the blackened ash, shining from a weekend of badly needed rain to help ease the current drought, causes the landscape to resemble a scene from a post-apocalyptic movie, rather than the war movie it is most famous for Saving Private Ryan

Via Ticketmaster:

We’re shutting down Seatwave.

That’s right, we’ve listened and we hear you: secondary sites just don’t cut it anymore and you’re tired of seeing others snap up tickets just to resell for a profit.

All we want is you, the fan, to be able to buy tickets to the events you love.

So, we’re launching a fan-to-fan ticket exchange on Ticketmaster where you can easily buy tickets or sell tickets you can’t use at the price originally paid or less.

The new website will be rolled out in Europe early next year. But from today, there will be no new events listed on Seatwave.

We’re excited about making ticketing simpler. All you need to think about are those incredible experiences you’ll never forget.

The Durrow Scarecrow Festival [Durrow, County Laois] is over and the straw replica of Pope Francis and his mobile have been banished to the side of the road outside nearby Ballyragget, much to the surprise and delight of passing motorists…

Not only did the Irish citizen pay more per head then any other euro citizen or country to fix the European Banking Crisis, we also have the luxury of paying the highest mortgage interest rates of any EURO country.

Is there anything that the Irish Government and bankers touch that doesn’t have a whiff of a scam to it?

Irish people are being ripped off and it will continue until Irish people learn to stand up for themselves against those in power. Time to drain the swamp in Dail Eireann.
