Recalling 11/11/’11 when Our President was Inaugurated at Dublin Castle

It’s five years to the day that President Michael D. Higgins was inaugurated as President of Ireland on 11/11/’11.  It was also a day on which Michael Cashman sent me a text in the afternoon to indicate that he had just seen a few of us on the 1pm  News being interviewed outside Dublin Castle Gates in the pouring rain (!) by RTÉ’s Ann Marie Smith.  Amazingly the piece was repeated on all the News Bulletins throughout that day!  And we have our own personal video coverage of the arrival of the President with all the entourage on that historic day….some of which is yet to be shown on LTV2 Millstreet.  (S.R.)

Plastic Kerrymen

When the Cork teams are playing
your heart would fill with pride
what a shame to be a plastic
and support the other side
.
From dear old Ballydaly
back to the county bounds
a strange little creature
in some places can be found
.
So, if you can’t support your own county
we don’t need you anymore
go ahead and pack your bags
and buzz off to Rathmore
.
They’ll send you to Killorglin
a lovely town of note
you’ll be very welcome
they always need a GOAT!

by Jerry Lehane

Transcript recited by Chloe Collins on RTE last Saturday night. Of course there’s lots of them Plastics appearing out since the match last Sunday. “C” reg cars with their kerry flags out the window. To be avoided 😉
