News In Brief – Irish Champion Slams Innocent Roma

roma

Rob Heffernan, the gold medal winning walker from Cork may walk the walk, but he doesn’t tweet the tweet. A recent slip on the social networking site has taken the shine off his World Athletics Championship medal after, in reply to the case of Gardai removing two children from their Roma families on suspicion of abduction, he tweeted: “Unbelievably dirty scumbags. They should be shipped out”. Uh oh. Of course the Roma children were living with their biological parents and Heffernan apologised.

Further proof paying the property tax was a bad idea: their coming after you for next year’s cash this year. If you succumbed to political pressure and threats of fines (that NIB hasn’t heard to materialise) you’ll now pay for it again as the government wants its wages in advance. They’ve Christmas parties to pay for! Continue reading

News In Brief – Reilly Plans Free GP Care As Hotel Cancels Beauty Pageant

Toddlers-and-Tiaras_1941

Remember last week when Bob Geldof was off to space? If only every week was like that the world would be a happier place*. Instead we’ve got protestors and pageants.

What’s the difference between a blobfish (last week’s winner of World’s Ugliest Animal) and the Minister for Health? One understands the intricacies of government spending and the healthcare needs of the country, the other doesn’t. NIB will let you come to your own conclusion which is which . . . James Reilly meanwhile has told Sean O’Rourke on RTE how he plans to bring in free GP care for all Irish citizens and more freebies for kids! Hurrah! But how Mr Reilly? We haven’t got any cash. Ah. Well, it might be slightly ’ambitious’ he told Sean, but sure feck it anyway, it’ll be a bit of craic. Continue reading

News in Brief-Vandals Graffiti Cork Graveyard As Dog Seatbelts Appear On The Agenda

It’s a horror filled News in Brief this week. Consider it a public service announcement, we’re all only minutes from death!

First, if your fit, not afraid of losing limbs and looking for work, NIB may have found the perfect position (haemophiliacs need not apply). If you’ve always wanted work that pushes you to the edge of your endurance Dublin City Council could be the place for you as new figures show the number of personal injury claims by staff while at work total €2.3m. Who knew life in public service could be so rough? 155 cases are still outstanding though employees often opt to stay at work during ongoing legal proceedings. Bless the brave souls of the city council. Continue reading

News in Brief-Ireland Fussy About Threesomes As Drugs Find Is A Real Kinder Surprise

There were three in the bed and the little one said, ’I don’t think James Reilly will like this’. Yes the threesome furore that has only been pushed from the papers since we found out Tubridy earns more than most people make in a lifetime. But there is actually a very innocent explanation behind the SpunOut.ie website. What with all this cold weather we’re having it makes sense to all bundle into bed together for warmth. Minister Reilly’s just got a dirty mind. Continue reading

News in Brief-Reforms Galore As Junior Cert Set For Chop And Grease Duo Pen Christmas Hit

Christmas No.1: All That They Want

In Kilmore Quay, Wexford there was such a thing as a free lunch yesterday as local skipper Jimmy Byrne of the Saltees Quest, owned by Séamus O’Flaherty, staged at protest at EU fishing regulations. The boat, against regulations came in carrying over its EU quota which states all surplus must be thrown back in to the sea. The crew then boxed up the fish and gave it free to the public. Mr Byrne said; “I have a certain quota of fish to catch and the monkfish end up getting caught. There’s more monkfish in Ireland than ever before. I can’t tell the monkfish not to go into the net.” The best fish in life are free.
Also in Wexford, in Enniscorthy, dogs have been attacking sheep. One farmer who has lost four of his flock described the rest of his sheep as being “deeply traumatised”.

There has been a crack-down on illegal drugs for sale in the North as part of operation Pangea V – sounds more like a shampoo. The curtailing of sale of these drugs including 55,000 benzodiazepine sedatives plus erectile dysfunction tablets is nothing to get excited about as they are potentially life-threatening.

Junior Cert reforms are under way with second level students of 2014 now to be examined under the new system. Learning to learn rather than learning to remember has caused controversy amongst students and teachers. Both the Teachers’ Union of Ireland (TUI) and the Association of Secondary Teachers of Ireland (ASTI) have criticised the plans and questioned how much more work this will create for teachers but it will be 2020 till we really see the results.

Enda Kenny assured there will be no cuts to child allowance. Instead, in a display of great insight, children will be cut – in half! All parents are urged to reduce the cost of their kids by reducing their size and consider cutting of arms or legs, less child requires less food and clothing.

Kids are too fat anyway according to a new statement by Safefood’s director of human health and nutrition, Dr Cliodhna Foley Nolan. Nolan has suggested weight and waste measurements are taken as regularly as eye tests to cut down on the number of overweight kids and obesity related health problems. Sen Crown, a doctor specialising in cancer medicine, blamed obesity as a risk factor for a number of cancers, adding that “surprisingly” you’ll do better in treatment if you’re not obese. Who knew?!

In celeb news the reunion we’ve all been waiting for is finally on the cards. Of course I mean Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta. It may only be October but it’s the Christmas number one they want as the pair have confirmed they will be releasing a festive single this year.

How To Be A Baby Fashionista This Summer

Harper Seven Beckham, daughter of Victoria and David, has recently been spotted wearing a pair of tights from high fashion designers, Chloé.  These tights retail for £15, when the adult version sells for only £7.  It is a personal choice whether a parent wishes to invest in expensive clothes for their children, but when it comes to small babies’, the length that they will wear the clothes has to be considered.  Infants grow at a rapid rate, and are extremely active, so their clothes need to be suitable for this period.  We look to the high street for some fashionable clothes for a summer baby, that won’t break the bank.
