Following an often emotional discussion on RTÉ Radio One’s Liveline about Covid hardships – and against the backdrop of the parliamentary golf outing…
This (above) is the last time I saw my Da alive. You can just about see his hand in the window. That’s my mom shouting up to him. I remember feeling physically sick at this scene.

On RTÉ’s Liveline.
Irish nurse Carol, who studied in Edinburgh, Scotland and is not registered with the Irish nursing body, told show host Joe Duffy that she is returning to Ireland to work but she has to pay €350 and wait 90 days before she will be able to work in an Irish hospital.
She told Mr Duffy and his listeners that she has been working in respiratory and emergency department nursing for the past four years.
“Part of the form I’m going to be filling out now is proof from the university in Scotland that my course was taught through English…I wish I was joking.”

Clockwise from top left:Joe Duffy, Hailey Keirse sent the card to Jean-Claude Juncker above with Taoiseach Leo Varadkar in Brussels on Wednesday
Further to mystery surrounding the extraordinary Thank You card ‘sent’ to Jean Claude Juncker by EU fan Hailey Kierse.
Ms Kierse told Joe Duffy on RTÉ Radio One’s ‘Liveline’ yesterday that she sent the appreciation when the President of the European Commission refused to remove the backstop from the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement.
She said she wanted to “kiss him” as she feared Ireland would become a “whipping boy”, and the Good Friday Agreement would be at risk if the backstop was to be amended.
Ms Kierse asserted “absolutely no agenda” and had not even heard of Mr Juncker before sending the card.
Conor H writes:
The only reference to Ms Kierse on social media is a Twitter account that follows a number of politicians , including Leo, and only has one tweet…
…which was sent out to all news organisations last August. All most odd. Have we been played? What’s going on?

Is the Irish Book Awards running an Acid Drop Ad Campaign? Alice says this image is “mimicking someone taking an acid tab….Why are they normalizing illegal drug taking and linking reading with getting high? Preposterous. Ignorant. Dangerous.”
