The last time we caught up with the lads, the fantastic foursome were all seemingly growing up and settling down into relationships, after an epic holiday in Crete to celebrate finishing their final year at school.

The news was met with utter disgust by a large percentage of Irish citizens, who feel misrepresented by members of our government. Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams also showed his disdain by accusing the government of “political cowardice”, while Fianna Fáil Senator Averil Power announced she is “shocked and disgusted with the Irish government’s decision not to support an international inquiry into Israel’s actions in Gaza.” Continue reading
