Did you say that's on the list of junior cert books?LOL

And there was me reading Jane Eyre for my Junior 

Now thats a reference I haven't heard in over 20 years LOL


Was chatting with someone recently enough about that book Soundings.  English poetry.  Was full of that nutjob Emily Dickinson. 

Anyone got her number by any chance?

Funeral in my brain or funeral in my head was one of Dickenson's ones. Had to study her in college. 
Wings? They're only the band The Beatles could have been.

Our religion teacher telling us that condoms were evil and effectively abortion.

I’ve no real time for FF or Martin but if, and it’s a big if as it’s hard to tell this because there isn’t a lot of detail in the Journal article, the Armagh event was commemorating the troubles then it’s possible to view these events events differently.

I just picked one random article to be honest. He's constantly going on about it.

Do you know see the sheer hypocrisy in this?

Couldn't comment on other situations but in this situation, depending on what the Armagh commemoration was, I wouldn't see that necessarily as hypocrisy.

A bit annoyed I didn't know about the event in Clare until yesterday - My great uncle led that ambush so might have tried to gt down to it (though definitely not to listen to Martin!)

I didn't know your great uncle was a terrorist.

Have you considered the hurt that he caused to all those Irish families and to the Unionist community.

But he was murdering innocent Irish people doing their jobs.

No, he fought in the war of independence (in the same way he had fought in World War 1 a few years earlier).
