Ban marriage altogether?

God damn his beautiful rebel soul.


Fidgety Fianna Fáil Cork County Councillor Aindrias Moynihan hesitates, and then declines, to show how he’ll vote in the referendum.

He’s done the numbers..

Thanks Luke O’Riordan


This afternoon.

Eamonn writes:

“A miniature pony and traditional traveller van leads out the mourners at the funeral of  nine-year-old-twin brothers, Tom and Paddy, after the funeral mass in the Holy Cross Church in Charleville, County Cork. The brother who killed the twins before taking his own life, 21-year-old Jonathan will be buried in the afternoon.”

Every Sunday.

Come rain or torrential downpours.

Diarmuid O’Flynn, who put together the video tribute, writes:

We began our protest on Mar 6, 2011, over 16 months ago, we will end when the wrong that’s been done – and is still being done – to Ireland by the ECB is righted. Our media tells us now a deal has been done – it has not, nor can it be. We’re not looking for a deal, we’re looking for the money the ECB forced from us to be repaid.
