Here's Glen Hansards 'Once', currently slaying them in the US, nicely condensed into 2 minutes

If you haven't seen it, I'm afraid I'll need a death certificate as an excuse

Harry Hallowes

Irish man, living on someones elses property, has been given money for nothing..

Something about a Will too.

And I quote "Maybe I'll build myself a house - everyone else around here seems to love building houses,"

This is all getting a little too familiar?

Here and Here

The Pale - Butterfly

Long forgotten Irish band The Pale, are back. They have just signed on the dotted line for 1969 Records (home to Dave Couse and Pugwash) and are releasing a new record early in June..

Here's a reminder of why it could well be a good one

Noel Ivory Voicemail

Here it is Ladies and Gentlemen, the infamous Noel Ivory Voicemail

And he only got 84 votes!!! C'mon people!

The TV3 Taoiseach.. Hello! it's gonna be OK!

Hmmm.. I'm relatively unmoved by the plight of the above, because if 'BA an Taoiseach' did the same with TV3, I'd rejoice. Then again, after looking at Bertie and his twin Grandchildren posing with Cadburys flakes in their mouths yesterday, I have a funny feeling he views Threeeeeeeeeeeeeeee as a positive addition to our culture.

Next he'll have a walk on part in Cornonation Street

*Thanks to Bloggorah for the Pic*

Noel Ivory

Noel Ivory is another young hot shot vying for a seat in Dublin South East. And if he doesn't win it, you can be pretty sure he'll take it anyway.

He got 72 votes in the last local election. Admittedly, that is more than I got, but then again, I wasn't a candidate

Further to this, I have just had the pleasure of listening to his Voicemail greeting. Anyone who can go on a rant against the K-Club, Iarnrod Eireann and 'Bertie the Pimpernel' in one sentence is sure to do very well indeed

Lend me your Face... No, not yours Bertie

Seeing as every Blog this side of the great Irish sea have been posting about this crowd I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon... I don't know why really, as I don't particularly like the song and the video looks like it was filmed on a Nokia 6310.. But they're Irish, just like the M50 and they must be loved

The band are called Fights Like Apes.

Back to the election soon

The Mill at the Hill etc...

It was when John Gormley had Michael McPoodle in a headlock that I began to think of slogans..

'The Brawl, 1.3 miles from the Dail' I giggled.

McPoodle bit back, and with a sinister looking Liz O'Donnell shouting encouragement from her Ladder, he wrapped the Jolly Green Giants bicycle chain around his neck and stood on his face

'How's this for a 'carbon' footprint?' McPoodle scoffed as he laid one in Gormless Gormley. O'Donnell barked in excitement

'The Mill at the Hill' I magically coined

By now, Gormley, was looking a little 'green' around the gills but he somehow got the energy to bitch slap McDowell against the most famous lamppost is Dublin. We were looking at a winner when I came up with the triumphant slogan

'The Rumble in Ranelagh'.

Thanks to RTE for nicking it.

General Erection - An Officer and a Gentleman

As Bertie takes himself of the the Houses of Westminster to deliver another stirring speech (this time to Lords and Ladies of Grand Britannia) another snap emerges of him enjoying a cosy love-in with an Politician, this time the Indian PM.

Don't kiss him Bertie, remember what happened to Richard Gere!!!!

Vote Tory

Interesting news about a British Conservative MP Roger Helmer taking the case for the protection of the Tara Valley to Europe. In this country, may I remind, a land filled with cultural artefacts of British origin, our lack of regard for our natural and built heritage is nothing short of shocking. I have just spent a frustrating few hours reading the comments on Archiseek and have been struck with the divide which inhabits this issue.
The people of Meath, who like many counties circling Dublin, feel neglected and crowded, demand that this Motorway is built. Some for practical and selfish reasons, others for the infrastructural status. To be honest, when the motorway is completed, and it is lined with Retail Parks and Apartments we will have be hearing people promote their areas as having 'A B&Q and a Woodies', as if to say this is the be-all in civic status. I would much rather say I had a 'National Monument' in mine..

Although Twink does live up the road, I'm not sure that counts

The best Eurovision entry of all time? He's made my fantasy dinner party list (along with Hitler and Michael Palin)

The Crisp man cometh

When a Nation is in crisis, it takes a special type of hero to stand up. We've seen it before when Alan Rickman had Michael Collins killed. When the little Scot headed past a hapless Shilton and when those nude pics of Jonny Logan were distributed with the phone book. Now, after years of the Walkers Crisps 'confuse the paddies with Salt and Vinegar in Green packets' campaign, the time has come for another, more flavoursome hero to emerge. A sleeping giant has awoken

From his website

How would you improve the mental health sector? Describing any sector as “mental” is offensive and hurtful. We should rename it the “extremely busy health sector”.

The future of Ireland?

Review of Week: With Amusing Pictures

Well, it's Thursday and I like to relax on a Friday so here's the review of the week (Part 1), in pictures, kindly prepared by Mrs Disgrace

Earlier this week we had 'the boss' skilfully, and possibly by means of a remote control, manoeuvring his poodle-in-chief into the firing line, for daring suggest that his lord and master had danced a merry but inappropriate dance with 'a few bob'. Oh how they laughed when Enda became a scapegoat on Boglands radio for daring to filter this information to the Public.

Here's a picture of Enda as a Leek which in this case, symbolises a 'Leak' and McPoodle as an excited plumber, trying to shore up leaks all over the shop. Funny is not the word.

General Erection

I was browsing (fully clothed) the other day, and I was startled to encounter a number of cosy snaps of our 'lovable' Taoiseach, with other 'heads' of state..

Here he is with Jacques Chirac.

Will they? Won't they??

More to come.

Video of the Week #1

Well, Captain Planet may have a few things to say to Dick 'Dick' Roche, but first he has to save Belfast from total destruction by a wayward 'fenian' who, somehow, got his hands on a compact nuclear device..

Roads to Nowhere

Dick Roche, or just 'Dick' to his pals has moved away from the political hotbed that is water supply and gone back to what he and his 'party' do best, building roads. Now, unfortunately for all the developers with interests in Fianna Fail, Dick could be considered as something of a loose canon as he holds the esteemed title of Minster for Environment. In most countries, this ministerial position holds the elected official to be responsible for the environment and by proxy, large swathes of that countries natural and built heritage. But as I said our Minister for the Environment is Dick Roche..

And to quote many a property developer, 'Thanks be to Jesus'.

Tara Henge to be destroyed

Super Size Me

Well, it seems that everything is better and certainly bigger for this election. First, we had Enda brandishing a giant P45, and now Bertie can be seen with this giant betting docket...

Anyone have a picture of Bertie with the giant cheque he recieved for 'decorating' his gaff?
