I'm currently watching Resistance, the aftermath of Revolution. Set in 1920, it's worth a watch.

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 here over the border and imprisoned Germans in the Second World War. Strange the things we never learned in school.

Just finished watching the 4th & final episode of the Virtues on Channel 4.

A very dark, though credible storyline in an Irish setting.
Perfect casting
Superb script
Excellent acting.
Best on screen drama I've seen in a long time. Dont understand how it has not attracted more comment.

Should be available on the C4 player.

That sounds great. I missed it. I watch channel 4 on the ASTRA sattellite. Would I be able to get the C4 player?

Great concert tonight Sharon Shannon at the Pavilion. She was joined by multi talented musician Alan Connor. A real treat.
here is an old recording to give you a flavour of what we heard!

I just finished watching The Stranger on Netflix... Gripping thriller and addictive viewing. Well worth a look if you like that type of TV programme.

I've started looking in on the Tommy Tiernan show on Saturdays as he has a quirky take on interviewing people. Last night was Bob Geldof. I've always had a bit of a grá for him even though he was a right pain in the ass for many years. Artistic temperament I think it is called! Well. it was a good interview and showed a deep Bob with a very broken and patched up heart and life. Despite it all the band are as good as ever and it is refreshing to see auld fellas my age still belting it out and capturing new audiences. Live long and prosper.

Did he talk about his media company fortunes or mention of his huge biscuit company in Nigeria ?

Very clever man is our Sir Bob, he has an excellent public persona as a champion of the poor whilst amassing great personal wealth at thr same time. I have no issue with him making money, but find him hard to listen to when he talking about helping the poor etc while his own walled has cobwebs.

I always thought of him as 'a pup' however, I saw him give assistance to an elderly person without being asked or drawing attention to himself. With this small action I saw him in a totally different light. I know nothing about his companies or his wealth.
