Re: What are you watching?

The documentary on RTE at 10.15.p.m. last night was most interesting. I never realised the important role Ireland played in the decision to go on D Day. That young lady watching the weather and passing on her findings was amazing. I was aware that this country gently put Allied Forces who landed her...

Re: Moan of the Month

Perhaps a system of penalty could be introduced for non voters? 1) no right to apply for housing 2) no right to interact with local authority 3) reduction or loss of benefits for a week lots of other things could be added to make a comprehensive list I believe it is our responsibility to vote unless...

Re: Water and other political issues.

Rocker people of a certain calibre have no concept of SHAME - they set a path and see no wrong in what they do. You can hear many more stories from people involved in GAA locally. Toss, we are forever being told of our highly educated citizens - how does that match with 52% not using the most precio...

In both Dalkey and Glasthule you can get good fresh food. I think Donal, son of John Hick (sallynoggin shop) now has the shop in Dalkey. His sausages are great and sometime you can get pork chops with kidney in his shop- mouth watering..

Re: Water and other political issues.

Folks, is there a register of 'claimants' and whether or not they were successful or not? It seems to me that recently a lot of judges have been dismissing claims as spurious and/or multiple claimants. Toss, I don't think this matter can be swept under the carpet, I believe other matters may come du...

Re: Water and other political issues.

What interesting reading this makes, I find it fascinating that one of our 'highly educated' could get things so wrong again! At a public meeting regarding the Clonkeen Playing Fields the same female representative clearly showed a complete lack of understanding of the issue, on that occasion her fa...

Re: Somewhere to Chat.

I did see coverage of the Ballymurphy inquest and the paratroopers bomb shell on both RTE and BBC NI but nothing on BBC 1 or 11 - exactly as it was when the atrocity happened. His statement cannot be overlooked, it may be put aside for a while but it will resurface. Justice will never be done but ho...

Rocker, I must presume that is a 'tongue in cheek' remark! Everything is in the name and politics in this little island. My maiden name was a very identifiable one, there were no others of the name in the Boro and it was amazing just how often documents lodged in the Corpo were untraceable until I s...

I have to comment the Parks Department of DLRCCO - the flowers on the Dual Carriageway and in the estates in Ballybrack were just beautiful. It is surprising just how cheerful a few flowers growing can be.

Re: Anyone have any photos of the Moynihan Pubs?

Rocker, at this stage I would think Mr. Moynihan was deceased. His son Tony would be a couple of years older tan me . Some years ago he was a part time taxi driver with National Radio Cabs.
