Hey Alda - yeah jobs are thin on the ground!

I have a friend in the media who have said that the Independent have been waiting to do a story on Oxegen, but MCD have threatened to sue - they've finally published it.

http://www.unison.ie/irish_independent/stories.php3?ca=9&si=1658541&issue_id=14402

Surely they'll have to beef up security next year?

Ah not if you were involved and not if you could enjoy shouting at the Biffo's as they streamed out of the stadium. Its the little things in life that matter when its The Midlands Derby.

Have to agree. I made a 4 hour round trip to the Fermanagh match and it was awful stuff. Didn't expect anything else admittedly - the last 5 games between these two have been terrible. Fermanagh bow out, but in truth they had neither the personnel or gameplan in attack to deserve to go any further. Ah well, roll on next year!

It just said that all hell broke loose at Oxegen and that people ran riot, had tents sent fire to, and people physically abused etc, drunkards, etc, fuckheads, etc. All in your typical festival really. Here is is for you now
---------------------------------




How we feared for our lives at Oxegen . . . festival-goers relive their nightmare

















ADVERTISEMENT



[link=http://red.as1.falkag.de/server/link.asp?cmd=url&auc=1&iid=149436&kid=293606&bid=1033454&dlv=661,20443,149436,293606,1033454&sta=,,,,,,,,,,0,9,0,8017,8011,7969,727,0&dat=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.Tesco.ie&rdm=5377.3878612585295&scx=1024&scy=768&scc=24&jav=1][/link]




THE organisers of Oxegen have come under fire after concert-goers said they feared for their lives at the outdoor event.
Despite being heralded as a resounding success by MCD, allegations of goings-on at the two-day concert include:
* Tents being set on fire.
* Unprovoked attacks on bystanders.
* A lack of security guards on hand at campsites.
Many furious fans posted details of their experiences on the Oxegen website.
However, MCD removed the messages a number of hours after being contacted by the Irish Independent.
Refused
MCD also refused to answer a number of questions put to it by this newspaper, including details of how many security guards were on duty.
"MCD are ecstatic with the success of the event, as are the gardai and Kildare County Council," said MCD spokesman Justin Green.
In a statement, he also went on to say: "We must warn you that in the event that an article critical of the event is published, we will take whatever action is necessary to prevent damage to the Oxegen event or MCD Productions."
However, a number of people who contacted the Irish Independent said they were left shaken from their experiences, mainly confined to Campsite A.
Sophie Merry, who camped with her boyfriend Brian McCafferty, said she would never return.
"I feared for my life when we were there," she said.
"If my boyfriend hadn't been there I wouldn't have stayed in the tent with another girl. We wouldn't have been safe. . . It was like a third-world country."
Gardai in Naas said although they were aware of some fires being lit in the campsites, it was up to the fire services and security guards to deal with them while the gardai dealt with other criminal incidents.
About 180 gardai were on duty for the weekend on the 550-acre site, with 60 confined to traffic duty. Others were assigned to monitioring bars or to patrol.
Michael Fitzsimons, chief fire officer in Newbridge, said it was the duty of the organisers and their employees to deal with the fires on campsites.
He added he had heard reports of trouble in the campsites, saying that he would be "a little concerned about what went on on the Sunday night".
"We will be contacting them next year (the organisers) and asking for increased surveillance on the Sunday night," he said.
Feeling
He added that there was a general feeling that events on the Sunday night were "not as satisfactory as they should have been".
Niall Power, a DJ on South East regional station Beat FM, said his group of friends left early because of the trouble. Despite a gang of 12 people in their mid-to-late 20s, he said they were too scared to hang around.
"We left everything and got out at 5 on Monday morning because it was so dangerous," he said.
One man who rang Liveline on RTE last week said the girls in his group were also terrified.
'Kevin' said they were forced to move tents on Sunday night after fold-up chairs were thrown and punched holes in their tent and added that the security "wasn't very adequate".
When asked by presenter Derek Davis if he would return next year, he replied: "I don't think I would because all of the girls were very very distressed."
Recalling the event, he said there was "fire everywhere" and "smoke all over the place" when they got up in the middle of Sunday night to move tents. They later met a young man whose hand had been burnt when his tent was set on fire with him in it.
One 20-year-old from Clonmel, Co Tipperary, said he returned to his tent on Monday morning to find it alight with his girlfriend asleep inside.
The majority of people said the concert arena was very well organised and had improved on last year. They said the problems were concentrated in particular campsites.
"No one is slating the line-up," said Liz Power from Waterford city.
""If they want to keep going with Oxegen they're going to have to do something about the campsite next year."
According to Ryan's Cleaning Event Specialist, who were hired to clean up the site after the two-day event, four out of five tents had been abandoned after the event.
There were 50 arrests and 370 minor drug seizures at the event.
MCD refused to give details of how many security personnel were on duty for the event.

I couldn't make it to Cardiff either due to herself's exams, and the fact that we are in the middle of moving house, watched the semi v Leinster in between emptying a transit van!

Anywho, we watched the match in the local.
Like two eejits in a pub of what I would consider not too bothered people who decided to just wear red for the day.

"JESUS CHRIST ROG, JUST TAKE THE f**kING THREE POINTS!" was a mild outburst from me during the match.

Anyway, match ends, I'm bawling like a wee un, herself is bawling like a wee un, but everyone else in the bar is strangely numb. For example no one seems to want to clap them up for the medals, and I'm thinking "Fuck this I'm off to Shannon airport!"

So off we go camcorder in hand and we meet a couple of high vis jacket airport crew at Shannon.

We get to talking and we mention we've driven up from Cork, so he says as we've come all the way up from Cork he'll make our trip worth while, so with a nod and a wink he says 'Meet me by the entrance to the restaurant upstairs in a minute". So we go up and the next thing we know we are being ushered into the VIP Press area!

There's only about 6 other supporters in there and we get to meet THE WHOLE TEAM! Herself get's her jersey signed by most of the team, got her piccies taken with ROG, Payne and Trevor Halstead, gents all, I chatted with Frankie Sheehan and Barry Murphy about next season, both very optimistic about it. Paul O'Connell is a model pro, signed everybodies memoribilia and only left when the Munster officials dragged him out.

What a night.


Ah sound man, that was nice of him! Must have made the day even better - if thats possible!!

Well I have my preferences sorted but haven't sent the email back yet, been a bit busy so I'll do it tomorrow! How about yourself? Kind of sucks that the lecturer doing the two of the more interesting modules (for me, anyway ) is only going to do one. I put the screenwriting module as the higher preference - the more practical options, the better, if you ask me.

Did you notice how to do Digital Video you have to do the Cuban doc. one too? Credits must add up to 20, and those 2 are the only 5 credit ones.

Fair play to Mayo - a brilliant performance in a cracker game. Glad to seeWhelan on the losing team - he's turned to thuggery in recent years and has got away with it.
Hope Mayo do themselves justice in the final

Recent years? That Raheny tramp has always been a thug! He deserves to have the book thrown at him for what he done yesterday. Fair play to Mayo, credit where its due.

Granted their inability under the high ball on the full back line will be costly in the Final but fuck it, the Dubs are gone, woo hoo, the witch is dead!

Yeah I did notice that. Who knows though, they may change things around a little come October. I'm definitely doing the Digital Video one though so if I have to do the Cuban one, so be it. It sounds interesting enough anyway.

Londoners, get yourselves to kilburn. Fine Irish community up there. Good pubs too

I have a friend from Ireland. He is from Dublin. Says Dublin is the place to be and they have Trams. I have NEVER been to Ireland. I sometimes wonder why. Must go sometime. Does Ireland have Television?

Sadly, no. We have to get people in England to write down what they've seen and send it to us by passenger pigeon. Can't wait to find out who shot JR.

Sorry Joe! The druids round here have us all worked up about this impending Christianity stuff so I guess I'm just not thinking straight.
