What the hell are you playing at. Stuff is happening in the country and you are celebrating something that never actually happened. Are you a Fine Gaeler or something? By the way tell Jimmy Deenihan that Fine Gael has talent in depth alright - yeah, down deep with the Titanic.
I haven't read the book yet but I saw the film 43 years ago in New York. The man who made the film died last week, Joseph Strick. And not a mention of his demise in the Irish media, not even in the 'Paper of record', the Irish Times. Tut.
Mr. Bruton and his little gang have confirmed something that Irish people have known for some years now FINE GAEL ARE FIANNA FAIL FOR SLOW LEARNERS!
The chat with Brian Keenan tonight was a powerful piece of television. You could listen to him all night.
