As a former reader of the Church of Ireland Gazette, some of my closest relatives in the house I grew up in were ex-CofE and went over to the CofI on arrival in Ireland, I was always entertained by the pseudonymous Cromlyn who had a regular column in that august publication. Now I think it […]A

Really interesting interview conducted by Marc Maron on his show a while back with Bradley Whitford – of Get Out, the West Wing, etc. Whitford made a great point about acting which has much broader applicability: I talk to young actors? [one] who said ?if you?re good, and you work hard, and you really want […]A

On media David Wendling?s book is particularly interesting. I hadn?t heard of Breitbart?s first video interview at the White House with Sean Spicer. It?s not great. Nor, despite Bannon saying that Breitbart had become ?the platform for the alt-right? the fact that subsequently the site ?would later kick back at descriptions that it was an […]A

[Mary McAleese?s] assertion that baptised children are ?infant conscripts? is grossly insulting to parents who sincerely wish to raise their children in their own faith tradition, be it Catholic, Church of Ireland or Presbyterian. And yet not a sentence later one will read: I do accept there can be a routine, culturally traditional attitude towards […]A

I kind of liked this. Stewart Lee writing about Morrissey and raising, yet again the issue of when do we separate art from artist? But what to do when our idols disappoint us? Like a lot of the centrist dads that constitute his audience, I suddenly found I finally had to decide what to do […]A

My favourite Pixies album? By a mile. Followed by Bossanova (which takes a completely different aesthetic, slower, more turgid). I liked Surfer Rosa a lot. Doolittle perhaps a little less. But Trompe Le Monde is where it’s at for me. Why? In part because it’s the least Pixies of the lot of them. It has […]A

Who the f*** in their right f***ing mind f***ing would ever the-f*** think the f***ing useless new f***ing design of the f***ing g*d f***ing awful f***ing Oireachtas f***ing website was a good idea? A basic starting point they missed: most of it is essentially a reference library of texts: dull, boring but important speeches, parliamentary […]A

No greater example of the changes that have taken place in the last quarter century can be found in regard to this state than the information found in the following: Country of Birth Immigrants in the Republic of Ireland (2016 Census) Poland 122,515 United Kingdom 103,115 Lithuania 36,552 Romania 29,186 Latvia 19,933 Brazil 13,640 Spain […]A

An Sionnach Fionn had a great point recently in comments when suggesting this: If the final deal is anything other than a hard Brexit, I reckon that UK politics will be dominated for the next two decades by further arguments over a Brexit Mark II. The Europhobia won?t be draining from the British body politic […]A
