Because he hadn't a clue who he was talking to, or what they were talking about. Jaysus the sight of Des Cahill pointing lads out to Kenny, and him going 'yes, oh right' was cringeworthy.

Where's the guns Ian?
Who's name is on the deeds of your offices in Ballymena and who pays the mortgage?
Do you really have the record for the most paying posts held by a politician?
Where's the millions now Ian?
How many members of your family hold positions paid for by the taxpayer?
Who pays their mortgages?
What did you say to your daughter when her boyfriend Sammy appeared in the papers with no clothes on?
How did you come by your Doctorate?
What do you think would be an appropriate punishment for a man who kidnaps a child?
What do you think would be an appropriate punishment for a man who incites others to religious hatred?
Seriously Ian, where's the guns?

Bad move RTE and they will chuckle and talk sh*** but he caused drove some poison and bitterness around this statelet. I remember him and Rhonda and Sammy were on with Brendan Grace years ago on RTE show. Never had any time for the Grace after that. Was at best niave of him. Rhonda was gorgeous tho  :-*

This sectarian bigot should not be given air time.  RTE would be better off showing a programme detailing his track record in the North of Ireland with regards the Catholic community.  The man should not be given any air time until he has apologised for years of open sectarian bigotry in the north.  Bet Pat Kenny shakes his hand like he did with that other loyalist scum Stone but could not bring himself to shake Gerry Adams hand.

I would like to ask him when he is going to retract the lies he told about Eugene Reavey in the House of commons and issue an apology for the very hurtful remarks. To say Paisley is a Christian would be in my opinion to compare Hitler to a Jew. He may not have pulled the trigger but there is blood on his hands

I'd like to ask him for his take on:

To say of what is that it is not, or of what is not that it is, is false, while to say of what is that it is, and of what is not that it is not, is true.

What percentage of our studio audience do you think will burn in hell Ian?
         Ah that's nice you brought a signed bible for everyone in the audience!

What's it like to be forced out of the leadership of a church you founded and ran for over fifty years?
         Follow up: "Did you ever envy the pope's infallibility clause?"

How's the young lad doing these days Ian, do you be up in his free house much?
        Follow up: "Did you bate him too hard when he was a young fella, or did the apple just naturally fall that far from the tree?"

Do ever worry you'll ultimately be remembered as a Lundy?

Is a gay Catholic more evil or less evil than a gay Free P?

I'd like to hear Plank ask him the following: ' During your 2003 Party Conference you said the following about this country's current Prime Minister ' I was enraged when I saw that strange character from Dublin coming again to see us."Somebody told me the other day the reason his lips were so thick was that when his mother was bringing him up he was a very disobedient young boy so she used to put glue on his lips and put him to the floor and keep him there and that has been recorded in his physical make up... yes, away with him indeed and if he wants to use his lips to better effect he should do it somewhere else and go to people of like physical looks." Tell me Ian do you think that was a christian way to describe him.

He may have been a hateful oul cnut in his day but we'll all be where is now some day with our mistakes behind us and no way of rectifying them. On the plus side - he dodged the reunited Ireland question, so I know what we can take from that and secondly both him and the wife refer to NI as "the north" (or maybe 'The North') so we can assume all the DUP tomfoolery about that phrase is a load of w**k.

I'm absolutely and totally disgusted by what I saw as well. I'm a Nationalist and still reject the notion that the 'Free state/Republic/26' had to give up the territorial claim on the occupied 6. If I've caused offence to anyone, sorry but that's my way of thinking. Why didn't Pat Robot Kenny not ask him about his comment on Cowen's lips I don't know? Then again maybe Kenny's a blueshirt or something like that... >:(

On the plus side - he dodged the reunited Ireland question, so I know what we can take from that and secondly both him and the wife refer to NI as "the north" (or maybe 'The North') so we can assume all the DUP tomfoolery about that phrase is a load of w**k.

I heard him say "I love the Free State"as the plank was going to the break.  ;D

Put the boot in the **** when he's down.

Hi there ,unreconstructed border counties would be nationalist free stater here who would like to detest Big Ian as much as the rest of you but perhaps is lacking the requisite creditentials. Now correct me if I'm wrong but didn't we have a Good Friday agreement sometime in the last century when Tone and Bert told us that all past sins must be forgiven. That lads who were banged up for various heinous crimes on both sides must be released to walk the streets. That lads who some of our hun brethern regard as a small bit dodgy must be allowed to represent nationalists in Stormont if that is what the democratic process dictates.

So this doddery old Orange cnut gets a chat on the telly with the plank, lets get over it lads. Just like we should probably get over other shite that doesn't really matter like the GAA Late Late special (the TG4 stuff is powerful) and the Langer hurling debate.

Good night all.

Pat Kenny is chief revisionist historian in Ireland now. Compressed the 125 year history of the gaa into the 70s and 80s and has now airbrushed Paisley's malevolent influence from the history of Northern Ireland.

RTE were 100% right to have Paisley on. Its important that every side of the argument is allowed put their point of view across.

But to give him such an easy ride? Kenny went down further in my estimations (if there is something further than extremely awful) with that. He seemed more interested in shitty anecdotes about how the Paisley children had to 'deal' with Special Forces protection than anything remotely resembling a political discussion/argument.
If Eamon Dunphy has taken a 10% pay cut, Pat should take a 50% one. Actually, no, sack the useless turd

I remember once when Bernadette mcAliskey was on the Late Late interviewed by Gay Byrne around early in the time of the second hunger strike.
Gay couldn't help himself poor man, it just popped out of his mouth and he walked right into it, 'well Bernadette apart from rent a mob there isn't much public concern over this issue'. (rent a mob was a reference to northerners who travelled down to attend parades)
Literally she leaped at him and ripped his throat open and said forcefully, something like 'well maybe if it wasn't for swarmy sneering idiots like yourself and Rte, people (us ignorant freestaters) just might be informed about the issues.'

The chat about the cinema really annoyed me.  I'm not sure what people were expecting, but it was obvious Kenny would never ask the hard questions, he never does.  He is terrible.

To be honest I didn't want him to tear Paisley apart, if it was during the troubles and Paisley was in hes old routine of hatred then yes but not now.  Saying that I would have liked if he asked him some more important questions about some of the things he got up to in the past, get him to explain some of the awful things he has done rather than talking about going to see films in the cinema!

If they got rid of Pat they couldn't get in anybody worse.  I remember about a year or two ago Evander Holyfield was on, and as a boxing fan I was expecting Pat to ask him some serious questions about hes career and talk to him about why on earth he would continue to fight at hes age but for half the interview Pat only wanted to talk about Mike Tyson!  I'd do a better job myself...

It was a load of shite last night but you would expect nothing more from Kenny. Lots of skeletons in his closet but nothing exposed by the plank at least we have a peace of some kind lasting up and senility has moderated some of his extreme views, which cant be a bad thing.

I had to laugh when they were giving out the samples of the ham later in the show and there was a shot of Ian Og smelling it first and then looking around as if for confirmation from Daddy if it was okay to taste it. A smarmy looking hoor.

Was the story about the Vatican visit true or was he just trying to get a reaction. I heard he is guest of honour in Croke Park this evening...

from todays irish times


'Late Late Show' slot with Paisleys an orgy of cosiness

ANN MARIE HOURIHANE

Ian Paisley rewrote history at a wholesale rate on Friday night and interviewer Pat Kenny let him away with it

REMEMBER WHEN the biggest worry we had was Northern Ireland? That national anxiety took up, oh, whole minutes of our year, mainly when we were talking to concerned foreigners about it. You don’t want to seem uncaring. But even that fitful effort from the citizens of the Republic now seems a long time ago.

So last Friday, despite all the advance publicity, it was a bit of a jolt to see Ian Paisley walk on to the set of the Late Late Show .

Ian Paisley and the Late Late are a perfect match; looking at the two of them it is hard to believe that the last 30 years ever happened. At the start of their public lives both Ian Paisley and the Late Late Show were viewed as edgy, radical and a threat to the status quo. Now time and lesser rivals have caught up with the two of them, and they have become museum pieces, occasionally illuminated by flashes of charm.

The Late Late , in any event, is not altogether to blame for its fate.

The RTÉ authorities were first too lazy and then too frightened to alter a format which has not changed since the 1960s. It is a mammoth of a programme: often woolly, occasionally frightening and unwieldy at all times.

Ian Paisley seems similarly determined to deny that he has changed a jot. He was a firebrand preacher. He made a virtue of immovability. His favourite word was always no. But remaining teetotal and refusing to go to the cinema unless the film is about Oliver Cromwell (bless!) is not quite the same thing as not changing. It is rather terrifying to think that the problems of Northern Ireland could have been solved years before they actually were, just by making Ian Paisley top dog. Wasn’t it Albert Reynolds who diagnosed that the promotion of Ian Paisley to glory was going to be one of the key steps on the road to peace? On Friday night it was fascinating to hear Ian Paisley talk about his first encounter with Martin McGuinness of Sinn Féin: “After the biggies went away. After the prime ministers went away.”

The biggies! For a fundamentalist Protestant Ian Paisley seems to hold very hierarchical views. Could it really be true that all he wanted all along was to be the Main Man? To southerners Ian Paisley was a rather reassuring figure; a cartoon fire- and- brimstone Protestant, of the type the nuns used to warn us about. Add to this his physical beauty (on Friday night a 12-year-old viewer was amazed when she heard he was 80 “I thought he was 56!”), his humour and his charm, and he became the northern Protestant with whom we could, if not deal, at least exchange pleasantries. Actually, he was the only northern Protestant we knew. So it is no wonder that his welcome here has always been warm. At the opening of the Battle of the Boyne centre last May, as he and Bertie Ahern enjoyed their respective political swansongs, a northern reporter told The Irish Times’s Miriam Lord: “Big Ian doesn’t even get a reception like this in Ballymena.”

Minders had to push back autograph hunters. Baroness Eileen stole the show with an impromptu and generous speech. The orchestra struck up Danny Boy and quite a lot of people cried. Ian Paisley – part of what we are.

Everybody knows that a lot of northern Catholics will never forgive Paisley for his incendiary posturing. But many northern Protestants won’t forgive him either, for his egomania, his 17th-century moralising and the fact that he became the most recognised northern Protestant on the island – not quite the representative they had hoped for. The Paisley telephone has probably stopped ringing since his retirement, so it is no wonder that this charming elderly couple decided to have the big night out in Dublin.

What emerged was an orgy of cosiness, which seemed to satisfy all the parties concerned. History was rewritten at a wholesale rate. Asked how she felt when they first met, Baroness Eileen said, “I just enjoyed his preaching”. This innocuous statement was undermined as soon as it was made by a photograph that flashed on to our screens of the young preacher Paisley, looking drop dead gorgeous. A picture of the young Paisleys, with Eileen sitting on Ian’s knee, showed a lively and sexy couple.

This was a nice thing to know about the Paisleys, just as it was nice to know that he is an attentive husband (“still is” said Baroness Eileen) and father.

Pat Kenny handled all this very well. But it was strange to see him, one of the best current affairs interviewers this country ever produced, showing so little curiosity about Ian Paisley. Asked if he had any regrets, Ian Paisley replied, predictably, in the negative. This seemed extraordinary from a man who had stoked the cauldron of northern Irish politics his whole working life, who had seen children incinerated and innocent people assassinated simply for being Catholic – or Protestant. Pat Kenny let him away with it. Perhaps he was right. We don’t know much about Northern Ireland and its suffering, but we know what we like.

I'm entitled to an opinion on it as a viewer. The man is costing a lot of money to (badly) host the station's flagship programme. Do you expect us not to comment on him at all and direct all our attention towards the decision makers in RTE? That's akin to not criticising any sub-standard soccer player for playing badly - direct all the criticism at the manager for picking them.

You said we would be terrible is we were on screen. Yes, but that's not our job. It is Kenny's.

If I needed surgery, I'd ask a doctor. Not you ONeill.

If I wanted a proper education, I'd ask TYP. Not you Kenny.

If I needed education, I'd be after a teacher.

I stated that perhaps of going down the red-top route of finding the easiest target, look at who employs and then see where the problem lies with. Pat Kenny does not own the RTE.

ONeill must be working from the presupposition that Pat is, and always has been, incapable of being a decent presenter, and therefore the crap job he's been doing for the past decade is the fault of the guys that asked him to sit in the hotseat in the first place. Its a bit like if Mickey Harte picked some poor reserve team player to play midfield for Tyrone tomorrow night. If the guy went on to have a shit game it wouldn't really be his fault, it would be Mickey's fault for not recognising that the guy was out of his depth in the first place.
Title: Re: The Late Late show
Post by: armaghniac on March 28, 2009, 03:08:34 AM
No but if Mickey Harte put a player in the forwards who was a natural back then the player wouldn't be totally responsible for the outcome.

Ye are quick to criticise but I'm sure all of you would wilt within 12 seconds with the camera on you.

So perhaps instead of the cowardly attacks on Kenny, assess RTE's decision makers.
What's cowardly about it?

Like the rest on here, i'd admit that i'd be shit presenting the Late Late. But i wouldn't set myself up to do it and take £XX thousand for it. And as that money is paid for by the public, the public are entitled to criticise.

As for RTÉ's decision makers, they have come in for plenty of criticism on this board - check out the GAA 'special' thread.

I said pretty much the same thing, wouldnt put it past OrTE to hire someone from a 'minority' background to host the show to demonstrate how culturally diverse we all want to be.

Live at 3 was brilliant wasn't it. It was a show meant for the older people and those feckers in montrose had to take that away from them.
You had knitting patterns and Big tom then all of a sudden they foisted these "females" with testicles (blaithnaid + sheena) and the lezzer nun from big brother bringing along their poncy Celtic new ireland tiger ways where we were too good for a tune from Margo and Charlie Landsborough, instead we had metrosexuals highlighting the latest in male grooming and blokes nail varnish while the women were talking vibrators and jet ski-ing. RTE hasn't really got much of a clue when it comes to programming to be honest, their judgement is fairly poor with their light entertainment and as for thier star shows like the big bow-wow, the clinic etc....as miley would put it...well holy god.

must add, how Ruth Scott ever became a DJ is beyond me.
the country got a bit up itself.

You're not wrong. RTEs problem is it relies too heavily on formats from other countries that are old hat in the country they bought it from. When it tries something reasonably innovative like that hotel shite well it's just car crash tv. Jesus you've a beaten docket straight away if that Baz fella has any involvement.

Tubridy made an off the cuff comment about running for office and I thought the country could do worse.

after hearing their stories, the likes of frontline, primetime and any other programme that has ministers/bankers/economists as guests is a load of dung (could not think of something more appropriate)... my heart goes out to them (not that i imagine that means much when you have to leave your home in two weeks)... and so grateful i am not in their positions... when you actually see those affected you realise how they have been f%&ked (can't think of another word to describe it)... so right in saying crimes have been committed that will go undetected or just brushed aside... and those who have committed them are probably now sleeping peacefully!

He shot into a crowd of what he called stone throwers and blinded a 10 year old boy in 1972, the boy who is now a man forgives him and is friends with him. The victim in this must be a better man than me cos that Brit Soldier came across to me as a condescending, arrogant w**ker who could not even express guilt about what he done. I'd love to see him get a good hammering.

Without having seen the feature Myles it would appear that you are indeed correct on one count. The victim would appear to be a better person than me, and indeed it would appear yourself in being forgiving. As regards the Tommy who was involved on the other side of this incident I'm sure the opinion of the immediate victim is of slightly more importance than the views of you, I or any other internet warrior/pub republican.

Calm down Myles. The victim is Richard Moore, who went on to become a successful businessman and a leading charity fund-raiser not only in Derry but across Ireland. He forgave the soldier, who is now his friend, went on to produce a memorable tv documentary about their meeting and wrote a book about his life story. If the soldier was the type of person you describe, he would not have answered the calls on Richard's behalf in the first place. It may not have been easy for him to have gone on the Late Late in the circumstances, but he did it anyway. Some of us might find the programme as an example of what can be achieved in Ireland, but you are entitled to disagree.

Clearly they get on well and it is a great story but I agree with Myles - the solider didn't come across too well.

Did you see the show? I don't know the history but I do know that I struggled to accept that this soldier could justify firing plastic bullets at children as he still does. For what it is worth he does not feel guilt at what he did and instead uses typical Brit language like "unfortunate" or "tragic" incident etc. Ryan Tubridy found it very difficult to accept the soldiers position and this was borne out by his line of questioning. Richard Moore is,of course, entitled to forgive the man and fair play that he could do that but for me when a terrible obvious wrong like this is done there should be remorse before the guy gets paraded around like he is a shining light of conflict resolution.

Don't recall Sinn Fein ever having shot anyone as an organisation. I presume you mean to substitute the IRA for SF in your statement. Indeed they have done and wrongly so but they have since apologised for the hurt they have caused. This man hid behind the fact he was a soldier to justify what he did and what he did was fire a plastic bullet into a group of kids. He even justified last night the action of doing it by claiming hardly any serious injury is/was caused by plastic bullets last night, when anyone with half a brain knows that is bullshit.

Certain irony to that reply as his victim can forgive him but not you Myles... peace how are you? The Brit said a lot of things that were positive and he did say he regretted it. Maybe sometimes that is the best you'll get on both sides and Richard Moore has accepted it.
That was a snapshot of the relationship betwen these two men. At one stage Richard Moore went in to defend the soldier when Tubrity challenged him so their friendship is sound and probably based on more than came across last night. Not one to defend the Brits but if it is good enough for his victim...

I never said SF shot anyone although we could get into that. I said that SF used very similar terms that you described at "typical Brit language". That is all.

Look Richard Moore is entitled forgive him if he wants, thats his business. What I am saying is that the man made excuses for shooting at children and he still does. That is not remorse. I don't "forgive" people that have no remorse. Do you forgive Paedophille priests just cos one of their victims might? People who attack children are scumbags imo, just like the IRA men who blew up mountbatten when he had kids on his boat.

It was great to see George Hook show that Tubridy tool up for the Fianna Fail p***k he is last night. Truridy wasn't expecting George to take him up on it, so didn't load the audience with Fianna Fail dinosaurs, the crowd loved it when he blamed Bertie for all. Well done Hook boy, ya stuck it to Bertie and crew.

He also talked very passionatly about Haiti and a nice bit of film on him in Haiti.

George is on from 33 minutes on.

Also loved it when Janet Dickenson asked him about the family, Tubridy nearly crawled under his toadstool, ha ha, loved it.

For the lads who missed the bit with the lad from Derry and the British soldier its at 49.30

The saturdays are at 45.30 if You want to see some fine legs.

It was great to see George Hook show that Tubridy tool up for the Fianna Fail p***k he is last night. Truridy wasn't expecting George to take him up on it, so didn't load the audience with Fianna Fail dinosaurs, the crowd loved it when he blamed Bertie for all. Well done Hook boy, ya stuck it to Bertie
Hook spoke passionately alright and in fairness to him, he has his views and he is entitled to him....however, he is a fat bollox who needs a good slappin followed by a steel capped kick up the hole.

Careful - Fox will be after you for that statement ;)

No I won't because he doesn't go over all that santimonous handwringing sh*te like he's the Dali Lama and then spout hate and violence in the same statements.

Bit touchy there Fox, someone in a bad mood cos of tonights result. You have a mighty habit of not addressing anything that I wrote in my posts by the way. I have clearly stated why I said what I said and you've ignored it.

Anyhow, since I have no life I am in watching Brendan O Connors new chat show and Michael Barrymore is on and i am cringing here. He is of his head on something and trying hard to be funny but really he should be put down at this stage.

Jees! Myles, do you really think I give a f** that Tyrone lost a league game to Derry in February?  :P  You're an oxy-moran  peace-justice-hate-kill

An Oxymoron is a contradictory statement, not sure how I could be described as a statement. Or perhaps you were trying to call me a moron which is ironic since you didn't even spell it correctly. And didn't you once write on here about spitting on a paedophille priest - is that not an act of aggression/revenge?

You really should care when your neighbours and rivals beat you too or are you just a fair weather supporter :P

As you are a language and grammatical giant Mylie, you should know that to say, 'I spit on him' is a figure of speech, like you hold them in contempt, lower than a snake's belly.
Aye-you're rite about oxy-moron, tho your statements are usually oxy-moronic.
Re-GAA  :P  When Cavan win a few All Irelands, you will understand that losing a February league game means nothing. Dublin beat Kerry today.     Come the summer it'll mean nothing.

I hope you realise how dopey you sound saying that...

It's all a matter of timing.

You can be a hero or a traitor - it just depends on the time you decided that you were prepared to fight for mother Ireland.

What's the difference then, between what happened at the start of the last century, what happened during the last 40 years and what happened at Massarene and Lurgan last year - you know, the death of what many republicans would have called 'legitimate targets', where McGuinness descriped the "men who fought" as "traitors"?

Enniskillen should not have happened

The ultimate mealy-mouthed weasel phrase. Almost makes me puke, to be frank, every time I hear it. Defend the indefensible, if you must, but don't try to have it both ways.

Unfortunately, I missed the Adams interview. I fell asleep listening to Jackson. I'd never seen or heard him out of character before. I was disappointed to find that, as with so many actors, there doesn't seem to be anyone in there. Perhaps a harsh judgement based on ten minutes of a trivia show, but anyway.

The <shudder> Wolfe Tones woke me with a horrible fright from a nightmare of being in an amplified hen house with a fleet of foxes running amok. But I was soon sleeping like a baby again when the cacophony stopped.

While their stated aim was Irish Unity, they were never foolish enough to think they could do so by force. They fought to bring the brits to the table. The fact that the brits initially didn't take peace seriously led to canary wharf. Republicans are still in the process of working for Irish Unity peacefully.

Hardy, if you try re-reading my post I would challenge you to pick out where I defended the Enniskillen bomb. I clearly stated it should not have happened. I won't tolerate being accused of defending it. I simply said that the IRA also stated it should not have happened. They also rightly apologised. Notably, they are the only party to the war who have apologised for their wrong doings. I also notice in your posts on this board that when it comes to the brits your attitude is to ignore the indefensible.

If "it shouldn't have happened" salves your conscience for you and allows you to continue to pretend to yourself that the provo murder campaign (that incident and, no doubt, a list of others apart) was just and noble, then perhaps you should consider a career in the clergy. Mental reservation is big there.

Again, where did I say it was just and noble? And if the IRA's campaign was a "murder campaign", what was the brits campaign?? Or for some reason was there a large proportion of people (calling themselves IRA) who just happened to like killing people knocking about in those times and it was just a coincidence that they were about at the same time as britain was carrying out atrocities?

How did I know that was coming next? Rule 3(a), Section (i): If you're not a provo you're a Brit sympathiser.

No I don't regard you as a brit apologist because you didn't support the IRA, rather because you completely ignore references to British atrocities and choose to only attack republicanism. And I've made no reversal i said that Enniskillen wasn't just. The broad IRA campaign was however. I don't regard the IRA campaign as a murder campaign. That would be me regarding it as a criminal campaign which it was not.

I'll leave the last word, or paragraph from the manual, to yourself, This stuff gets boring after thirteen years of it here. So fire away with whatever labels you feel like sticking on me, just because I can't console myself with "it shouldn't have happened" (in my name).

Where do people gain souch knowledge, from RTE or the BBC.

The 'Whataboutry' you accuse  Nalley of is not only from one side. I tend to think that those who have strong opinions here in the north from both the pro and anti armed struggle debate have reached their views because because of their own lives and where the trouble brought them.

Fair enough Sandino, but I've never subscribed to the notion that only Northerners are entitled to comment on the Troubles. My opinion is as valid as yours. There's no point in debating if you always win because of where you live. If you have a problem with something I've said, tell me what's wrong or untrue about it.

The round of applause tuffers got last night reminded me of Q&A a few years back. They were talking about British torture of Iraqi prisoners (the pictures printed by the mirror which turned out to be false). Mary Lou McDonald said she wasn't surprised as they have a history even in Ireland in recent times. Some Gobshite politicans (can't remeber which one but think it was FG for some reason) lashed into her saying it was an absolute disgrace that she should make such comparisons (the comparison being torture of prisoners in Ireland with torture of prisoners in Iraq). He got a round of applause for it. I couldn't believe it. For some reason torture was accepted in Ireland by the Irish but not acceptable in iraq by the Irish. Right then I knew the Irish would never hold the British to account for their actions inc Dublin and Monaghan. Even more disturbing they will defend them.

Don't pretend you don't know what I mean.

You might consider saying what you mean, then and I might have some chance. You seem to be drawing a conclusion about the attitude of the Irish people from that of a Late Late show audience. I can't see any other meaning in your post. If I'm wrong, maybe you'd clarify.

Nothing, it's in response to your claim to have the same authority to speak about it as those in the north which is simply absurd. Enniskillen was one tragic event. Why damn the entire organisation based on this wrong and forget that the IRA grew out of the same justifiable anger that you say would have driven you to attack brits with a shovel.

So there we have it. You are right because of your address and I am wrong a priori, whatever my argument. No point in continuing.

Right or wrong, I can't leave without saying I see no equivalence between taking a shovel to defend your family and the cowardly murder of women and pensioners. Bye.

Another point. When loyalists murdered people in their beds, witnesses often reported that they often broke in and walked straight to the bedrooms of their victims, knowing the house's layout. In these cases, the RUC/brits had raided the houses weeks before and openly sketched the layout of rooms. I recall living in fear after seeing them sketch my home. We were lucky but others weren't. Don't try tell me those in the south are equally qualified to talk about what those in the north went through.

Sorry, Zapatista. You'll have to try again. I have no idea what you're talking about. My question is about the assumption of equivalence between the Late Late show audience and the Irish people. Why are you ignoring it?

It's a juvenile, cowardly tactic to try and twist my question into a suggestion that I condone the torture of prisoners. I assume you'll be man enough to retract that.

Once again, in case it's not clear: are you saying you can gauge the mood of the Irish people by the applause on the Late Late Show?

P.s. Don't run away. I challenged you to consider for a second that the IRA's campaign was not daily "Enniskillens" but was essentially aimed at military targets. To call the IRA campaign a "murder campaign of women and children" is pathetic anti republican propaganda and rhetoric that Willy Frazer would be proud of.

Sure I've already conceded that only Northerners may henceforth speak of the Troubles. You live there, you are therefore the fount of knowledge. Excuse me while I slink away, continuing to marvel at my own ignorance in being unable to understand the leap of logic that should take me from fear and loathing of the RUC and Brit army to letting off a bomb in a gathering of families and murdering and maiming them wholesale. The sad thing is I can never hope for enlightenment, having had the misfortune to be born in the wrong place. Still, I can console myself that that's preferable to dying because you happen to be in the wrong place when a crowd of psychopaths are on the lose with bombs.

I did not accuse you of condoneing torture i highlighted you avoided the subject over the subject you addressed.

I gauge the mood of the Irish people through my experience with them which fell in line with the audience of the late late show. The late late was an example I used to highlight (and it highlighted it to me) the issue rather than us examples I picked up from friends in the pub of the same point of view.

Enniskillen should not have happened

The ultimate mealy-mouthed weasel phrase. Almost makes me puke, to be frank, every time I hear it. Defend the indefensible, if you must, but don't try to have it both ways.

Unfortunately, I missed the Adams interview. I fell asleep listening to Jackson. I'd never seen or heard him out of character before. I was disappointed to find that, as with so many actors, there doesn't seem to be anyone in there. Perhaps a harsh judgement based on ten minutes of a trivia show, but anyway.

The <shudder> Wolfe Tones woke me with a horrible fright from a nightmare of being in an amplified hen house with a fleet of foxes running amok. But I was soon sleeping like a baby again when the cacophony stopped.

Grow up. This isn't a schoolyard. "Run away"! Anyway, the day I run away from an argument with a provo sympathiser is the day I c**k up my toes. To be honest, though, I'm tired of arguing with you. It's the same old sad pathetic shite I've listened to for forty years. And I can't win, because I have the wrong address.

"It wasn't daily Enniskillens"! Listen to yourself.

I leave where I came in. "It shouldn't have happened" is one of the most mealy-mouthed weasel phrases I can imagine. It would be good if the provos and their sympathisers at least had the decency to admit what they're defending instead of trying this pathetic get-out.

This was shown be the crowd last night. Where do people gain souch knowledge, from RTE or the BBC.

The round of applause tuffers got last night reminded me of Q&A a few years back. They were talking about British torture of Iraqi prisoners (the pictures printed by the mirror which turned out to be false). Mary Lou McDonald said she wasn't surprised as they have a history even in Ireland in recent times. Some Gobshite politicans (can't remeber which one but think it was FG for some reason) lashed into her saying it was an absolute disgrace that she should make such comparisons (the comparison being torture of prisoners in Ireland with torture of prisoners in Iraq). He got a round of applause for it. I couldn't believe it. For some reason torture was accepted in Ireland by the Irish but not acceptable in iraq by the Irish. Right then I knew the Irish would never hold the British to account for their actions inc Dublin and Monaghan. Even more disturbing they will defend them.
It comes from a mixture of self loathing, lack of a backbone that Ireland has and a "I'm alright jack" attitude.

I think there were 600 civilians (out of the c.3,000 deaths) that were civilians. I'm not sure of the Republican/Loyalist split on that. But Enniskillen isn't the only example, just the most high profile.

They still apologised. And talking about what SF did or said years ago doesn't make a difference. Gerry Adams is on record as stating it was wrong and shouldn't have happened. That terrible event doesn't typify the IRA's campaign, which can't be denied. Constantly using this as a way to imply the IRA's campaign was aimed at civilians is dishonest. Also, has any other party to the conflict accepted their level of involvement and apologised or is that not important?

Hardy, what's your issue here - is it 'mistakes' such as Enniskillen or is it that the IRA's right to fight back in general?

If it's the first, I'm sure you are aware that approaching 80% of those killed or injured by the IRA were willing participants in the conflict in one form or another (according to 'Lost Lives'). That's a figure that would rank very favourably with pretty much any armed campaign or war you want to choose and one I'm sure would as good as or not better than the campaign fought by Turbity's grandfather.

If it's the second, and you are against armed conflict in principle, let's get it out in the open instead of hiding behind the 'atrocity' headline, so we can have a sensible debate on the matter.

Come on Tony, you know what he means. If a hitman comes to a house he wants to get in and out quick and get the right person (i.e. the right bedroom) not wake up the whole house as he runs through it searching for his victim. It is, as i'm sure you know, well documented that security forces provided Loyalists with information on republicans or just plain ordinary catholics, leaving roads free for the assassin to flee and carrying out half arsed investigations. Have the brits even admitted that the sent the SAS into Ireland yet?

Can I just point out that in the 1916 rising, in the following War of Independence and the climax of the civil war, more civilians died than in the entirety of the troubles. If you were to ask Unionists in 1920 whether the fight was justified or glorified then you'd get a similar answer to those during the 70's. The difference is the advance both in journalism (television cameras and widespread audience) and the methods of war (civilian targeting bombs etc).

Incendiary devices were actually used by the anti-treaty forces in 1922 so I would not make this a moral fight and suggest that there was no comparison between the two. In fact, it's completely ridiculous to suggest that the PIRA are worse because they're Northern. It's almost a reversion of the 17th Century Protestant inclination towards blaming a general Celtic and genetic inclination towards terrorism rather than the more circular inclination of Britain to invade Ireland. For Tubridy and his predecessor Byrne to claim that the comparison between old republican and new republican bears no weight reveals the absolute idiocy of what is a shallow, ill-conceived depiction of history rather than a moral high-ground. In republicanism there is no moral high-ground.

I'm not saying it didn't happen, I'm just saying it seems strange that the peelers or Brits needed to point out the exact bedroom by sketching the interior layout.

After looking at it again I think you're right. It would be very encouraging to think that the Irish people see little to no difference in the old ira and the provos. :P

Maybe I got it wrong but my perception was that the applause was in fact for Gerry Adams and not for Tubridy.  It was a totally farcical point he was making and the smug manner in which he made it didn't do him any favours.  Gerry Adams was both sincere and heartfelt I thought last night.  He's a much too intelligent man to let the weasel get any over on him. I thought Adams came accross well.

He mentioned it a wee bit HS, in between Tubridy's constant interruptions...I know he played minor for Antrim (despite living in Down ;)).  What club did he play for...obviously not the Johnnies...??

Tubridy is an annoying hoor for interupting people. PS, I don't see any difference between the Old IRA or the Provos. Both fought an armed campaign to free Ireland from British rule. The old IRA 'succeeded' in freeing 26 counties back in the 20s while the Provos 'succeeded' in bringing the Stormont regime as it was down. Hopefully, although I very much doubt it the Unionist majority in NI will become a minority and there will be a UI in my lifetime, although I wouldn't bet on it either.

What do you think Mary O'Rourke and freinds are doing on the show. Its payback time for the job. Next week they will have the new Fianna Fail candidate for the Listowel local elections on.

When it comes to getting the late late show gig, there is no such thing as a free lunch in this town.

He sees her in the same form as the stereotypical statues here with roses at her feet and 12 or watever stars around her head and the blue clothing... is that the only only outfit she has?!!... is reassuring to know Ireland is still rearing them.

Jedward are just an embarrassment. The joke wore thin about a year ago.

Agree with all of the above. Tubridy once again was trying to out-Paxman and was sure he was being hard hitting and giving the public what they wanted. Wrong again Ryan. The man answered your question and has answered it hundreds of times now. Badgering him wasn't going to make him suddenly apologise for Iraq.

Fecking idiot. He still feigns surprise that Al-Queda inevitably filled the vacuum after the invasion of Iraq despite, fecking despite, the advice of all and sundry who were familiar with the region and who earnestly and emphatically advised the war criminal how it was an absolute nailed on certainty that the invasion would only be the beginning, and not the end, of anything. His ego and infatuation with US power rendered him blind to such wise counsel. Tory b**tard.

Glad to see someone agrees with me. Blair is a master of spin. All this crap about rising above the media nearly made me sick. He used the media to pedal his spin and now they are back to bite him on the arse. Tubridy also let him away with some outrageous statements which are probably to do with the famous bookworm not knowing the subject he was talking about well enough. I refer to the Iraq war where Mr Blair spoke about having to stop the monster Sadam who "gased his own people".
He did Gas his own people but it is interesting to look at how this happened. In brief Iranian Islamists overthrew the Shah which scared the life of the west for fear the revolution would spread (the shah was also a brutal dictator but he was a good friend of the west). Sadam invaded Iran and armed to the teeth with US arms was sure he would win but Iran were made of stern stuff and pushed him back over his border. Then Sadam used Gas provided by western countries to gas on the Iranians. When Iran moved back inside their own borders Sadam then gased the Kurds who lived inside Iraq and who Sadam believed had Iranian leanings. The west knew he was doing it and they had supplied the gas so its a bit rich to use that as a reason to invade Iraq.
The 2nd thing that was disgusting was Blairs next reason for invading Iraq. Apparently Sadam was such a brutal dictator that child mortality in Iraq was at a horrendously high level. Child mortality in Iraq was normal for that region (and maybe even better) until US/Brit sponsored sanctions on Iraq stopped food and medicine getting into the country. Supposedly the logic is if we make life so miserable for the people they will rise up and overthrow Sadam (who is armed to the teeth with western weapons) - never mind if 100's of thousands of children die. Then war monger Blair uses this as evidence that Sadam needed overthrowing! Our own Mary Robinson was at the fore of criticising these brutal sanctions.
Sadam was a savage brutal dictator but he was not the only one in the world and I think we all know why the yanks and brits decided to take him on, it was cos he stopped playing ball with them and got too big for his boots when he went into Kuwait. Blair is a lying dog and anyone who thinks he "came across well" really needs to brush up on their history and stop taking the master spin doctors word for things.

Myles, lest there be any confusion... 'coming across well' does *not* necessarily mean you agree with him.

I think if he had a re-do, he wouldn't have been so gung ho on Iraq, but he has to peddle that line now, or else his legacy (despite his protestations) is absolutely destroyed, not to mention the 'war criminal' aspect.

However he did come across well iin the way he handled Tubridy's 'hard hitting (read repeating the same question 10 times to appear hard) approach.

Did Cowen really say, when Martin McGuinness said he'd have to discuss some proposal with the IRA, "Martin, there's a f**king mirror in the toilets, use that"

If anything Blair comes across as a bit scary.  He totally believes that everything he did was right.  Right to invade Iraq and Afghanistan and right in how he handled the economy and the banking system.

Though no real surprise in that he was someone comfortable in the company of GW Bush.
The world (apart from a large swathe of the US) knows he was wrong. You really think he'll admit to being wrong. His job now is to persuade the world to read his convincing account of how he was right.

If the opinion of the UN etc counted for nothing we only have mylestheslasher and FoSB to persuade him he was wrong.

Shuda dropped Dickie Rock, Brendan Boyer, yon bint and her effing angels.

Ah bollix...............the whole show should have been about Micheál.

He's been more important to Irish people at home and abroad than The Dubliners, Sinead, U2, Ding Dong Denny O'Reilly, Archibisop John Charles McQuaid, Effin Eddie, Stephen Roche, Jimmy Magee, Sean O'Casey, Black guy with guitar on Grafton St in the 80s, The Cigaire, Judge, Sally O'Brien, Pat Spillane, Terry Mancini, Kevin O'Higgins et al

But drop Babs. Oh Jazes, drop him. That bitter hoor should never ever ever be let near a team, a mic or a tv studio.

Zap - surprised Joe Duffy is unknown in parts of the island. I assume you've heard of Liveline, or, as some of us like to call it, Livewhinge or Livewhine.

I know him on the wireless surely but didn't recognise his head on the late late. If I had have been listening to what he was spoofing about I'd have caught on.

The "great" part being that despite spending most of his life battling some tumour on his pituitary gland he has a bit of spirit as opposed to c***ts i.e. the rest of Ireland feeling sorry for themselves because they have to give up the flat in Bulgaria and get rid of the 530d.

Tubridy asked no real question about it and just sorta stared at Galvin. The shoes bit could've been humorous but Tub thought he was being smart.

I knew he was mental on a football pitch but the more that interview went on the more I wanted to reach for the phone to call the medics.

He is totally different (wont say weird in case I upset Hardstation who is big into fashion )  look he is at the end of his football careeer was an average teacher and is just doing a bit of self promotion . I suppose my memory of him is the fierce divied debates he has caused amongst Kerry fans over the years . But feck thanks for the all Irelands
How do you know this?

Thought Tubridy was crap. He didn't know whether is should like him or give him a rough ride. The clip of the fish-hooking was a bit like Pat Kenny and Dara. Tubridy asked no real question about it and just sorta stared at Galvin. The shoes bit could've been humorous but Tub thought he was being smart. Galvin was a bit pissed off at the banal questions I think esp the tattoo crap. It was like one of those '5 mins with...'
Far, far too much is made of his "bad boy" antics so I think he has every right to be peeved at those events taking precedence over the positive aspects of his career. Tubridy didn't really know what to make of him and his questions were crap - Galvin is perceived as different as he doesn't fit the GAA stereotype. There are plenty of fancy dans out there - sure the city boys tan and shave/wax. Wouldn't catch the country folk at that carry-on but I don't think it makes him strange.

Famous French rugby player is a Sculpture and Cantona (eh) is an actor. Neither would be regarded as shrinking violets.

Why is Galvin weird just because he hasn't a clue how to dress himself? There have been generations of footballers who couldn't do up a tie. So what?
Must be front-row as he couldn't be very mobile.

I couldn't give a shite what Paul Galvin wears. Actually I applaud him for having a bit of style, even if I cringed at the NY clip. The shoes quote was hilarious, Imelda Galvin!

For me the worst part was the self-promotion of a guy who is obviously trying to make a career for himself. But I guess he's not the only person guilty of that.

Jesus, though, the size of his fecking hammers!

For a man that is/was a teacher and has a 3rd level education he is a very poor speaker. Mary Byrne was able to express herself far better and was a lot more interesting to listen to, and I'm sure she hasn't had the education Galvin had. Fashion column my arsehole, just cos he's into his clothes doesn't mean he's actually good at choosing fashion or setting trends. I think he might come out in this documentary? He seemed to be holding something back. And if he's not announcing something as big as that, then why the hell have RTE spent the money making a documentary on such a boring person? He'd need to be coming out for them to justify sending a film crew to new york for that bollox.

Nonsense argument. How many teachers would feel comfortable sitting being asked stupid questions in front of a live studio audience whilst being simultaneously being broadcast across the nation?! You have a strange view of teachers and people with a third level education.

It isn't nonsense. I expect an educated person who has to communicate with large groups of children on a daily basis to be able to string a sentence together. How is that a strange view? If he wasn't comfortable then what was he doing there in the first place, tell me? He seemed more than happy to go down the fashion route with the interview, and I wouldn't blame tubridy for that. It's obviously the image galvin is trying to portray. Not nonsense.

I agree. Unlike the majority here I wouldn't be critical of the interview. There was none of this "poor me" or "its so hard doing this" shit that you get from too many intercounty players these days. He made f**k ups and fully accepts that it was totally out of order. I know nothing about fashion and can't see the fascination with it but if we were all the same it would be fairly boring. He is a brilliant player and takes as good as he gives. I wish he was from Sligo. Fair play to him and I hope he succeeds at whatever he goes at.

I couldn't agree more with you Gallman. Cringe to the power of ten. Very strange interview. Tubridy clearly knew little about him except for the bad boy stuff. Galvin seemed to be going out of his way to look and sound eccentric. The 60 pairs of shoes.... having panned what to wear for the interview a week in advance.... the clip from the documentary....

I thought the audience were quite bemused...... I really dont know what the interview was about. If it was last year when he won the AI/player of the year/Allstar fair enoughj... but what was he promoting? the documentary? career change?

He has always been a poor speaker and last night was no different but it seemed as if he was holding something back as another poster here said. Apart from his misdemeanours I rate him the most effective player in the game but last night as a personality he look confused and foolish.

I personally found that a lot of the conspiracy theorists' questions could be explained by these, and it is always good to make judgement after hearing both sides of the story anyway

Maybe Corr was duped about what he was going on the show for, but Tubridy is surely right in pressing him to answer questions that he doesn't necessarily want to, similar to questioning Martin McGuinness on some things he wouldn't necessarily want to answer. There has to be some challenge on the show for certain guests so that it's not just a soapbox.

Jim may be mad or maybe not but for me tubridy is a little p***k looking down his nose at his guests. Corr thought he was going on to talk about Irelands finances but tubridy wanted to mock him by insisting he answer a stupid question about a airport scanner.
Maybe Corr was duped about what he was going on the show for, but Tubridy is surely right in pressing him to answer questions that he doesn't necessarily want to, similar to questioning Martin McGuinness on some things he wouldn't necessarily want to answer. There has to be some challenge on the show for certain guests so that it's not just a soapbox.

Did you watch it? He asked him about what he thought of the all over body x-ray machine and he said that he came on to talk about the irish financial crisis. Tubridy said he'd get to that in a bit and forced him to answer cos he thought he could make a fool out of him. He did answer and said the radiation emitted was dangerous (which is very possible) and that they were overly invasive (which is a reasonable enough position). Tubridy then never once brought up the financial question, probably because he knew he'd get no mad shite from Corr on that topic so he kept going on about 9/11. The point is there was no value added to the interview by pressing him to answer a bloody stupid question about an x-ray machine!

As for 9/11 itself. I don't know what happened or who did what but the engineer in me tells me 3 huge buildings falling flat in on top of themselves after 2 had been impacted from the side and the other not impacted at all, does not make a lot of sense. Whether shadow governments, Mossad or others were involved i wouldn't know but I wouldn't put anything past Mossad either.

Not the way Jim does anyway, it's ok for people to disagree with him. You seem very quick to jump to his defence GHD.

There are many video's of the collapse of WTC 7, and this is just one of them.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zv7BImVvEyk

I defend Jim on his attempts to try and get people to wake up to the reality that 9/11 was something
more than we were told by the mainstream press, and the US Govt.
9/11 brought the US and the UK into Iraq and Afghanistan, and we all the know who is making the profit for that adventure. It's a shame that so many people have had to die from 9/11 onwards.

People have every right to disagree with Jim, but when they do, they should at least present facts that prove him wrong.

so who brought the building down ?

Larry Silverstein, the owner of WTC 7 gave the order to demolish the building.

Whether you share Jim Corr's beliefs or not, the questioning and the looking down his nose by Tubridy was cringeworthy.  The same the week before when he interviewed Martin McGuinness.  The typical RTE line of questioning.

Are you sure you are watching the same programme. She's a goner.

Despite Nally's crying I think Tubridy is being fairly even-handed.
Aye, good job she's there. No family resemblance there anyways

Jaysus you'd think I was the only one to criticise him. And crying? I think that bar his pointedly one off invitation to one candidate to attack another, he has been handling it well.

It's like a fecking X factor audition except we pony up for the winner. Good to see Dana put Turbidy in his place, she was clearly his "go to option" for a bit of ego trip then she throws it back at him about not being a Church spokesperson and he's forced to go totally off script. Is it too late for Geldof to nominate, would hack in.

Davis gone after tonight, how did the blueshirts conspire to select such a clown as Mitchell.

Based on that I'd say we're looking at one from Norris, McGuinness and Higgins. I'd disregard Mitchell, Dana and Davis with Gallagher a very outside bet.

Flip I thought Norris was a disaster in that he avoided every question and tried to make up for it with empty rhetorical oratory (Irish people aren't that stupid to fall for it). Gallagher might have hit a few buzz words for the Celtic Tiger generation but when pushed for detail he hadn't a notion of what to do or say - that boys going nowhere thank God, FF bluffer anyhow. Davis for me bombed out completely. Tubs could have given her the coup de grâce by either asking her how many quangos she was on or how much she was paid for the 4 Council of State meetings in 7 years she attended, but she was already gone at that stage. Michael D started off very strongly - almost sounded like Gerry Adams from his Louth campaign - talk of new Republic, citizens rights etc... but went a little downhill in the later part of the show when he started rambling about his 'cultural' achievements. Nice lad, definitely in the race for the right reasons, old school Irishman, feck, he even speaks like my favourite uncle, but... just a little bit too twee...
McGuinness handled everything with competency, experienced, didn't mention Mandela or say "in the round". Looked  the part, though was lucky he didn't the religious questions directed to Dana. Which brings me to the star performer of the night - Dana. Love her or hate her, she was the one who would have gotten most from this evening. She wasn't the best performer, coming behind Michael D and McGuinness, but her honesty and integrity shown through by the end. OK, she came across as very naive, but personally I've rather have someone with honesty and belief in their convictions, even if I disagree, rather than some gimp who tries to be everything to everyone. I think there was someone else on the panel, but not sure, so my run-down would be:

Michael Higgins, Martin McGuinness (Joint 1st)
Dana (3rd)
Norris (4th)
Gallagher (5th)
Davis (6th)

Best performers for me were michael d and dana. You might not agree with dana, but she actually has a platform and spoke passionately. She wasn't afraid to speak her mind - the others went for the safe soft options. 
Michael d looked and sounded like the wise old statesman in a group of pretenders.
Norris wasn't as bad as prime time, and mcguinness and mitchell weren't as good.
Mary davis was grand, she's always just grand.

John Fean had a brilliant voice - but wasn't a front man like Philo or Rory. Devlin drew the short straw as front man but it never really worked.

These priests are wheeled out once a year on The Late Late Show for some reason that I can't fathom. I spose tis sale and all the mammies love them. Aside from my 75 year old mam that shares my opinion as she is a fiery Whest Cark woman.

Don't like Tubridy on TLLS. Couldn't stand Gaybo either, but he was a great host nonetheless.

Nobody can match Gerry Ryan on the radio. He had a way with people, and a voice you could trust. He could get away with saying anything too. Tubridy doesn't have that.

Tubridy wants to go to England but it's a brutal game over there.  Maybe in Ireland he is too associated with the boom.
Or doesn't have enough real life experience. I dunno. I was in the same Gaeltacht college with him back in 88 I think. He always wanted to be famous. He he had been a child reporter on "Poparama".

Time has moved on. in the past if you lived in the west and were restricted to two channels, you had to watch the TLLS, As the option on RTE 2 was 5th rate crap. Hence ratings were high.

Today you have an abundance of channels from Sky, Setanta, Freesat etc. The internet and broadband have taken from the telly also.

Most guests Tubridy get on are people trying to sell a gig, a book, movie or tv show, or in some cases all four! Most of the (scripted) interviews we have caught already from cross channel or cross atlantic shows. And anyone local (Irish based) are burnt out from multiple interviews at this stage. If there's anyone i want to see on TLLS, i go to the RTE 'Player' and skip to the interview.

You will notice that all the presenters of talk shows cross channel have comedic personalities that draws a bit of devilment from their guests.

Giggs came across worse to be honest. He was shagging his brother's wife while his own wife was in the hospital. He's actually got away pretty lightly with the whole thing. Fergie obviously overlooked that. He's quick enough to comment on someone not shaking hands though.

Ah, that's football. All perspective or how you can spin perspective. Giggs weathered the storm and the next big scandal came along.

What I heard from a lad who was playing, yer man (second/third generation Irish) never even played football that often so giving him a ban was meaningless. His main 'sport' is extreme fighting so he is big on elbows. Useful also to have a big time lawyer and GAA stalwart for a father. Fair dues to SF PD as they did seem to put a big effort into prosecuting, to the extent of ignoring visa violations for many of those giving statements. Didn't get enough evidence in the end as it was off the ball and no-one from Marks team saw the incident. Shame on the other club though.

Interview was pre-recorded, Paul is so shy he proably requested it. In his book, he said he was once asked to present medals to a school boy team in Birmingham. He would not have to make a speech, just hand over the medals and say 'Well done', he could not do it.

i was slagging tubs off after his gerrard interview a few weeks ago, so he deserves a bit of credit here. The interview was grand, but i suppose it comes down to personalities, given seems as engaging as any soccer pro is likely to be, whilst stevie G was just a bore fest.

I loved the bit spent talking about his decision to go to celtic, and the link of donegal, glasgow and celtic, and that was his choice over Man U. Of course he never got to play for celtic, they fucked up big time letting him go, considering packie was finishing up.

The late late gets plenty of slagging, and is often shite. But really, is it possible for an irish TV show to have 6 great famous celebs on ever week, every year? i only seen given last ngt, the scottish comedian ( im not a fan, but thought he was ok), plus the britain got talent guy ( i never watched the show, but plenty of people did). Dunno who else was on last ngt, but una healy was good last week!

Jesus, as I said Twink needs a shoeing.

We all adjourned to the AR - T - E canteen where a swing band was belting it out. Too feckin loud. Sinead had defrocked and was wearing a white tshirt and trousers and dancing with Brian Kennedy. The rest of the B list and C list celebs were drinking the free booze.

Marty was stuck into Keith Wood's ear  - Amanda was nowhere near him.

No sign of Liam Neeson or Bongo in the afters.

The difference between Imelda May and Sinead O'Connor in their performance, appearance and interview was telling. May performed for the audience, Sinead was all about herself. The minute i seen the priest outfit (which would be ok for a fancy dress party) i began to cringe!

Also, you can't put Sinead and Tiernan on the same stage, Tiernan has proven in the past he cannot deal with volitile women (Remember him with Jordan on Dunphys show?).

Liam Neeson was Pissed and really really boring!

Twink had her "zip up your mickey" moment with David Agnew.

John Waters told Tubridy that The Late Late Show was insignificant and it's time was done. Tubridy ran away from him before he could elaborate.

The Late Late Show is an old boys club and last night confirmed 50 years of it!

Probably a score draw between the post and her performance. Was it just the color resolution on my TV was off or were most people on the panel and the audience the victim of a jaundice outbreak? Marty Morrissey looked like he had put in a few shifts in Sellafield without taking adequate precautions. Neeson was ratarsed.

Never really listened to any Sinead O'Connor performance before but I never realised how shit Sinead O'Connor is at singing.  I have heard 'Nothing Compares To You' on the radio before and always assumed she was a good singer as I couldn't understand how else she would get so much attention as she is clearly a nut job.  Must have had a good producer back in the day just.

That Nell McCafferty yok is a disaster, I would even rather listen to Nadine Coyle instead.  McCafferty seems like a hateful oul hoore.

As for Turbity, how he ever got any presenting job is beyond me.

For the hundreth time, Marty Morrisey shouldn't be allowed near any form of media that shows his face, god only knows what anyone from outside Ireland thinks when they see him on our TV screens.

When she was in a relationship with Nuala O'Faolain (spell) she was known as the Evil of Two Lezzers

She is a weapon for sure. TBH I thought the mad Sinead had us spellbound with her song in the studio. The voice was ropey in parts but I thought she did well. Well, that is, until she stopped singing. She was doing weird tourette type things when the camera wasn't on the panel.

Currently even f**king up a chat with Marty morrissey. Haven't heard about his ancestors role in the rising and war of independence yet tho, would imagine its not far away...

He is incapable of interviewing any sportsperson from any sport which is a strange one as you would think most men in Ireland could talk about at least one sport.

My daughter and Tub's daughter know each other and I've stood with Tubs, both as Dads, admiring their undoubted talents in the performance arts.

Unless he was temporarily indisposed, whether due to narcotic influence or otherwise, he was someone who has crossed the threshold and lost everything that made him vital, interesting and amusing. The real Billy would have taken over the show. This one looked as if he was waiting for his carer to take him back to the home.

His performance last night can't be blamed on age, as Ulick said, he did look slightly stoned ... it seemed to take him a few seconds to calculate what he was actually being asked.  My father just turned 70 and he'd be alot more switched on than Connolly was last night, mind you, my ould fella hasn't sold out auditoria around the world :-)

In fairness there is some truth to this. Tubridy tends to suck a lot of the life out of interviews. It was especially bad when Jonathan Ross was doing his BBC show as they sometimes shared the same guests on the same night (although Ross was filmed the day before).

A few weeks later he had Paisley on the show and he licked his fcukin arse.

Yeah, cringe worthy stuff alright, would have been worse if Dara had no AI medals in the back pocket. The bringing up of the book plus putting him surrounded by Tyrone heads was a pure set up. Dara was clearly upset, but had the last laugh that year! Anyway you have to take your beatings and there will always be some one to give you a dig when you do lose. That is why winning is important.

Its only in the past 20 years (at least in my mind) its dawned that Ireland was never really the land of fairies and elves. The church (catholic guilt) had total control when it came to the shaping of irish hearts and minds in those times. I've even heard tell of stories from a few generations ago where grannies would take new born b**tard babies to the bog to bury them such was the shame brought upon the families. And now we have fundamentalist catholics like Iceman telling us that the world is more evil than ever in current times ???

Managed to catch the most of that interview last night. Joe and Shane are two inspirational people and I hope they can get the Irish Government to change this law and ensure that adequate services are put in place, to ensure it works.

Joe was very emotional last night and who could he not.

Absolute up roar here in Monaghan over pajo's uturn last night, got very nasty at one stage. Rumours that after tipping Mayo for boyles he was bought off by Paddy Power who wanted Dublin selected by him, as they fancy mayo and now expect a flood of money on Dublin after pajo's latest selection.

Hasn't gone down well and a few windows where put through in the local PP and a field of calves where also targeted. Monaghan folk don't take kindly be been made a fool of by Paddy Power and his money.

There's always one.

Jonathan Davies did nothing to suggest he was more deserving of a place than perhaps the greatest centre to ever touch a rugby ball in a cauldron like that do-or-die third test. The result didn't justify that selection in any sense.

Gatland's comments this week confirmed for anyone who somehow hadn't noticed before that he has a huge chip on his shoulder with regards to Ireland. It wasn't simply a selection decision and that is why it rubbed everyone up the wrong way and quite rightly so.

Ya might have a good point about Gatland but in top-level sport the right result always justifies the selection. To say otherwise is nonsense IMO as is the argument that a player's former greatness should make any difference when picking a team.

The only centre who had even a passing influence on a game that ended up a runaway victory for the Lions was Jamie Roberts. The match was won up front. BOD offered more from 13 (or even 12 if Gatland wanted to go mix-and-matching) and it's hard to make a case the Lions would have won by any less if BOD was starting.

I wouldn't disagree with that Syferus but O' Driscoll wasn't missed which made all the wailing about his non-selection even more embarrassing. He's just an ordinary player at that level now, great and all as he was in his prime.

At what level? International level? How many centres in the Six Nations would be selected before him even now? Clearly not many if he started two Lions tests this past summer. He has continued to exert a huge influence at international level even in recent years.

Just because that third test was a runaway victory (and that in itself was a flukey result given how tightly fought the previous two tests were) doesn't mean BOD couldn't have made a telling contribution in a close match. The reaction was fully justified and Gatland deserved worse, to be honest. It was as much about his own ego as it was about Davies over BOD.

In fairness Gatland could have played at 13 in the 3rd test himself and the Lions would still have walked it. They mashed the Aussies up front which they failed to do in the two previous games that BOD actually played in.

My point is that a manager is entitled to pick his team and be judged on his results. I didn't think that was even debatable but apparently it is. After the team was named, every rugby expert in Ireland was bemoaning the fact that Gatland had blown the test series by leaving out O' Driscoll, waffling about "the intangibles", "leadership", "experience" etc. The Lions go out and win by 30 points and you're claiming that Gatland wasn't vindicated. I just don't get that.

I wasn't picked for the 1984 minor championship final in Longford - do you hear me moaning. No siree Bob.



In fairness now SS were you not a brave lock a years overage at that stage. Agree with your general sentiment, That Welsh bloke that writes for the Sunday times (Stephen Jones) was doing a (presumably) tongue in cheek article before the last tour about what each of the four countries bring to the tour, when he got to Ireland the jist was,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,"50 players that are absolutely nailed on deserving to start each test......" BOD was great, he's getting to the end, we should move on.

The lass bigging up herself as having a 'heart of gold' really did the opposite of what she intended and gave form to what the Hopkins woman was saying. It was just as ridiculous, self-aggrandising and meaningless a comment as anything Hopkins said. The audience tried to fight fire with fire and just did exactly what the Hopkins wanted and expected.

That was an entertainment piece, just the same as a Tommy Tiernan interview, in my eyes. Made for some excellent tv as the women in the crowd were full of humourless disgust while the lads were laughing their little heads off.

Tubs can tackle this one like a second row forward but when Gerry Adams is in town he looks like he's genuflecting before God.

I don't watch the Late Late Show but I have heard that wannabe mouthpiece on the Nolan radio show. I blame the media here.  Who really has any interest in what opinions this woman has and what influence does she have over those that make decisions affecting our lives? None, so why give her a platform. Incidentally, what was she on about this time

A counting machine that can't go past 99. And Tubridy did not even notice the odd numbers in a even number voting contest.
The RTE Click being questioned by Billy McGuinness. He was dead right in all he said. Linda Martin then trying to intimidate  Billy McGuinness was bulling at the highest order.

Anyway winner Kasey Smith is part of the girl band Wonderland, which was put together by former Westlife member Kian Egan as well as Louis Walsh.

Linda Martin's "I love Mickey" at the start set the tone.

Poor Johnny. When he arrived in there were a few oul wemen screaming. Then when his confidence was high he made the joke about covering his manhood with his shirt. There were sounds of retching in the audience.

The backlash ongoing at present against RTE could prove more beneficial to The Wolfe Tones than getting an interview.  I've the inside line on this one, and was actually in the RTE studio last night.  RTE didn't want The Wolfe Tones about the place, but they were pressured into giving them an appearance for their 50th Anniversary.  The Wolfe Tones had lined up numerous guests to accompany them on the show to make a night of it, some of them pretty big names from the world of music, film and politics, but RTE didn't want to know.  It went from a full show to 2 songs and a 20 min interview, to 1 song and an interview, and at 11pm last night to just 1 song.  Whether you are into The Wolfe Tones or not is irrelevant, they are one of Ireland's most iconic acts, 50 year careers are extremely rare, they deserved more than what was afforded them last night.  But that's RTE for you, they'd rather conduct pedestrian interviews with a former chess champion, a 60 year old who pulls 20 year old men, and Barry McGuigan talking about meeting the Queen!

I much prefer Framps and Barry to the Rah 'Tasches, honestly.

Garry Kasparov was the highlight of the night by a mile and to push the above off for lads who sing vaguely sectarian songs would have been stupid in the extreme for any television show.

There will be very little backlash.

Well on the Late Late Show, the song you heard was not 'A Nation Once Again', (or 'A NATION ONCE MOREEEEEEE' as you call it), but 'On The One Road' (a song about "inclusiveness", if that is what you're after). So maybe with a level of knowledge like that of the music of the Wolfe Tones, it's possible that ignorance is the excuse for your comment about them being "vaguely sectarian".

Sectarian?? Hmmmmm...
