UK Labour Party MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle makes a Brexit protest in Britain’s House of Commons yesterday

Not caused by hard borders
Just a chap with a five foot long mace

Former Ireland captain Brian O’Driscoll said taking the painkillers Difene and co-codamol “almost became like habit

On occasion a sporting type will
Need assistance from a little pill
To make sure the pain
Will recede once again
But too much will make you quite ill

Is seen by the Greens as a sin
But now there’s a plan
To process your scran
And access the heat that’s within.

A team with a tough match ahead
Got worried so one of them said
A player had died
Don’t worry, he lied
And it turns out nobody is dead

Fast track apartments announced by Minister for Housing Eoghan Murphy (above) may not be built until 2020

This morning the newspapers say
There’s going to be a delay
Before we build flats
Though I’m certain that’s
Something we’ll get round to, someday

A stout-hearted maritime crew
Have rather an odd job to do
For week after week
They’re planning to seek
Some lumps of the world’s biggest poo
