Isthere any word of anyone protesting or did all the hippies tire themselves out protesting at the Queen?


Don't you mean scumbags?

Quite a warm welcome this guy is getting considering he vowed to take jobs out of this country and bring them back to America.




blackduck -> RE: The Irish Thread! (23/5/2011 4:43:58 PM)

Yeah, thought the Anti-Shannon crowd would be out....and that bloke who's always outside the Dail in the orange jumpsuit.

Maybe they didn't fancy the weather this morning.




Keyser Sozzled -> RE: The Irish Thread! (23/5/2011 4:46:54 PM)

Huge turnout in Collage Green. Whatthe fuck was Brendan Gleeson on about though?[:D]

Jesus, if only Kenny was this passionate about important issues.




Keyser Sozzled -> RE: The Irish Thread! (23/5/2011 5:52:46 PM)

Just thinking that. He sounds like he is about to blow a gasket

He was awful shouty wasn't he? I had to turn off as it was giving me a headache.




Keyser Sozzled -> RE: The Irish Thread! (23/5/2011 7:59:15 PM)

It was the most passionite I have ever seen him. Twas a bit strange in truth.,

It's been an amazing week or so for Ireland in terms of public profile. It's about time that we trie dto generate some positivity around the place.




MOTH -> RE: The Irish Thread! (24/5/2011 3:30:40 PM)

Is féidir linn!

Actually, thought his speech wasn't all that great myself - bit rambling, maybe the Guinness was too strong for him.
And what the feck is the deal with handing over babies for presidents to hold!? Haven't people seen The Dead Zone?




Keyser Sozzled -> RE: The Irish Thread! (24/5/2011 3:55:15 PM)

Well it was never going to be an actual political speech, I agree it was a bit rambling but he got the crowds, interacyed well and hit the makr with Is Feider LInn comment so it's all good!




Woger -> RE: The Irish Thread! (24/5/2011 4:17:00 PM)

So the most powerful man in the world is an honourary biffo. Who'd have thunk!




Keyser Sozzled -> RE: The Irish Thread! (10/6/2011 8:36:26 PM)

Brian Lenihan dead.

RIP




Erlenmeyer Flask -> RE: The Irish Thread! (6/7/2011 8:18:29 PM)

Not all that familiar with this Roscommon hospital situation, but there seems to be a parish pump odour from it.




Woger -> RE: The Irish Thread! (11/7/2011 12:40:17 AM)

Oxegen bring out the big guns!

In the red corner! ENDA KENNY! (Fair play to you, sir. *Cheers wildly*)

In the blue corner! THE VATICAN! (Booo! Hisss! *throws rotten fruit and veg*)
Fight! Fight! Fight!




blackduck -> RE: The Irish Thread! (22/7/2011 9:33:47 AM)

Never thought I'd say this, but I'm really starting to rate Enda as a leader.




Erlenmeyer Flask -> RE: The Irish Thread! (13/8/2011 2:07:15 PM)

So, Gaybo won't be running for the Park. Thank feck for that.




Erlenmeyer Flask -> RE: The Irish Thread! (16/11/2011 2:45:22 PM)

I see the parish pump is still alive and well in Irish politics. [8|]




blackduck -> RE: The Irish Thread! (15/3/2012 11:11:28 AM)

Anyone paying this household tax? Personally I'm holding out till the last second, not as a protest as such, I'm just not convinced the government won't do a u-turn on it and I'll be €100 out of pocket.

Apparently only 15% of the country has paid...could be the water charges all over again.




st3veebee -> RE: The Irish Thread! (2/4/2012 3:59:23 PM)

I am Irish and I am posting in this thread. That's about it.

Did you pay yet? I'm still holding out to see what happens.




King of Kafiristan -> RE: The Irish Thread! (2/4/2012 4:25:28 PM)

Just posting up to celebrate my Irish heritage. My double helix is powered by fully 50% Irish DNA, and I owe a debt of gratitude to the Emerald Isle for having sheltered my people before they made the journey to North America.

In tribute, I offer this elegant image of shamrocks growing up the trunk of a moss covered tree:

Yeah [&o] paid in full, the mrs insisted.
One if the questions in the application form is about what kind of water connection you have, fuckers aren't even being subtle about what they're planning next.....




Keyser Sozzled -> RE: The Irish Thread! (4/4/2012 8:39:24 PM)

I forgot this thread existed.

Paid it, kinda sorry I didn't wait and see what happens, if they bottle it and don't enforce it I can be sure I won't get a refund!




Woger -> RE: The Irish Thread! (11/4/2012 2:08:04 PM)

it's a pity there wasn't as much opposition to the Anglo Bail out and NAMA, considering what it's costing.

Anyone see this? http://www.broadsheet.ie/2012/04/17/oh-dear-5/http://www.broadsheet.ie/2012/04/17/oh-dear-5/
 

At least they now pixelate the poor woman.




blackduck -> RE: The Irish Thread! (18/5/2012 10:30:56 AM)

Soooo, everyone decided how they're going to vote?
I'm voting yes
I think I kinda understand the treaty and am making a relativly informed choice.
But mainly I just don't like the look of anyone on the No side.




Woger -> RE: The Irish Thread! (18/5/2012 3:05:32 PM)

I moved out of Ireland a few years ago so I only follow things on a small scale. A few things strike me;
people don't like the bail out but it's either accept that money at low rates or go to the markets at close to 8%,
the whole EU forced us into bailing out German banks but brian Lenihan was behind the Anglo guarantee and he was re-elected and people seem to have a favourable view of him (plus I have a hard time believing FF did something without people close to them benefiting);
kind of related to the bail out in that where do people think money wiill come from just for basic running of the country;
too many people still think rising property prices are a good thing; some people still seem to be under the impression that the bubble years was normal;
someone from the party thatbankrupted the country nearly got elected president;

I hate to sayit but Ireland is not that far form a failed state in that we hardly seem capable of looking after ourselves.




st3veebee -> RE: The Irish Thread! (21/5/2012 3:32:31 PM)

Absolutely voting Yes. Basically for the same points you added: The No Vote just looks stupid.

That said, my knowledge of it all comes from the fifteen minutes of the Metro I read on the Dart every morning [:D]
