The proposed headquarters for Anglo Irish Bank, sold to the Central Bank in 2012, standing in Dublin’s North Quay has been vandalised. Despite having CCTV and security arrangements in place the shell of a building was daubed with anti-semitic slurs. The aptly named, At Risk Security monitor the land directly behind the site. There now considering a name change to We’ve Got a Great Big Dog So Feck Off Security.

Leinster House have been learning the rules of soccer after a visit from Irish team manager Giovanni Trapattoni to the Oireachtas Republic of Ireland Supporters’ Club. The newly formed club currently boasts 63 TD’s and senators who were all keen to learn from the Italian manager. Club secretary Senator John Gilroy said: “We had a chat about where the game is,” – usually on a pitch – “and what we can do as Oireachtas members to encourage the game.” Over-priced kits and generic memorabilia are traditional.

News in Brief-Quinn’s Getaway Foiled By Price Hikes As Molly Malone May Be Set To Emigrate

Even Molly Malone has had enough of the rain and the recession , the iconic statue at College Green could soon be off to Oz. Failte Ireland, the tourism board and Emirates Airlines have been in discussion about moving Molly, as part of Melbourne Cup celebrations, to the city for two weeks in November where she will join Ireland’s young work force. When even a bronze statue is emigrating it’s time to wonder if Ireland really is up a certain creek without a paddle. Wait for me Molly!

Except in Manchester where the security measures of the city airport were foiled by an eleven year old who attached himself to an unwitting family to bypass security checks. One commentator said; ‘If an eleven year old can get past security, so could a thirty-one year old’. I can imagine it now, six foot tall, bearded and affecting a squeaky voice, I’d say even Manchester’s clearly lax security might spot that one.
No doubt Peter Quinn would have found this story very interesting as he is also trying to run away – technically has run away. Having been sentenced to three months in prison for his involvement in the Quinn saga, and losing his licence due to drink driving earlier in the year, it hasn’t been going too well for Peter. According to sources he was showing signs of the strain before he made his departure, the poor lamb. He’s not the only one, his legal representatives have now asked to be removed from representing him in the future. Ouch!
         Of course if he could stump up a bit of cash, he could get a Bus Éireann ticket, but he’d want to be quick, prices are going up and I hear he’s not as flushed as he used to be. Commuters will apparently face a six percent rise in fares from January 2013 across the CIE transport links; Iaranród Éireann, Dublin Bus and Bus Éireann. To many of the unemployed population though commuting is but a distant dream.
