With Glastonbury finally upon us, we are once again faced with the two usual talking points: One: the weather, and two: controversy and skepticism regarding one of the headliners. This year, the announcement of heavy metal titans Metallica as the festival’s third headliner raised more than a few eyebrows. Would metal and a Mumford type crowd mix? Continue reading

News in Brief-James Reilly Teams Up With 50 Cent For A Double Dose of Controversy

James Reilly Knows He’s Been A Bold Boy

THERE’S NO COKE!! Coca-cola that is, not the other stuff, sure they found plenty of that in Dublin the other week. No, there’s none of the fizzy brown stuff we all know and love. A flood in the production plant in Co. Antrim at the beginning of this week threatened to leave the whole country facing a drought. Before you rush your petrol cans down to your local Supervalu, stocks were set to be replenished mid-week just in time for Friday’s vodka HURRAH!

       Bono and wife Ali Hewson gave their youngest daughter Eve the gift of music for her twenty-first. Actually a recording of the two parents singing Lady Gaga’s Telephone. Not exactly much of a stretch for the U2 frontman perhaps he didn’t have time to get to the shops. Anyway, what twenty-one year old wouldn’t want a cd of their dad singing?
      All of them.
      The glass screens that separate the proles (me included) from the workers of our social welfare departments are to be removed despite the fears of said workers. The Department of Social Protection hopes to “frame” the relationship between it’s employees and clients but many workers fear they will now have to look at welfare recipients, sorry, fear for their safety. They have, by way of appeasement, been given panic buttons and CCTV is case the rabble should get too riotous, the dirty beggars.
       What do Health Minister James Reilly and rapper 50 Cent have in common? Not a lot but they’ve both made boo boos this week.
       50 ’Fiddy’ Cent has had to cancel a planned appearance at Carphone Warehouse in Dundrum Town Centre after making an ill-judged comment on Twitter. This was not taken well by some young fans who made full use of the Dundrum Town Centre Facebook page to vent their frustrations.
        Minister Reilly on the other hand has been making mistakes of a monetary nature. It turns out while James Reilly may be overseeing the closure of some nursing home beds he actually has his own money invested in some others. By invested I mean he owes €1.9 million.
It seems my own little home-made it into the nationals this week after the cancellation of Wexford’s biggest agricultural show. The Irish Independent ran a story featuring one of our local priests, Bishop Brennan who is asking all parishioners to pray for an improvement in the weather. I don’t believe in all that, but I do live in Rathangan and at this point anything is worth a go, so, dear Lord if you could stop the rain soon that would be great. Thanks.
