According to RTE, he has retired.

I assume that the mandatory appearance on Murriam's Multicoloured Swapshop will follow. Then, who can say?
A future as a 2FM or LyricFM DJ?

And don't forget the empty balaclava on the other chair.:cool:
Vinnie had a few Stickies on the show. Adams may not have been on it but McGuinness did appear on Vinnie's debate with presidential candidates.

Even though he's not a journalist/presenter, I think he did a fine job hosting VB's show.

One Declan Ganley.
He was surprisingly good at hosting it. But then the low quality churnalists in the Dublin media had effectively painted him as some kind of ogre. Even Pravda's Proimetime did its own hatchet job on him.

Vinny was of the looney left - but a good entertainer nonetheless
His panels were loaded with lefty politicians and journalists
And God help the odd right wing disposed politician who entered that pirates den..
Or so they thought until Leo to showed him up as a fake
But the wolf never really blows the house down in the real world - as Loe demonstrated
A sad exit for Vinnyegar - he expected it to be his crowning glory
They needed to get personal with him. The reason politicians became the way they are, was because Jouro's of his generation spent there working nights slumped over there typewriter drunk in the newsrooms. He himself paid the top tax advisers in the county to make sure he kept his tax share as low as possible. Should have asked him to give advise to the great down trodden on how a socialist like himself can end up in a multi million mansion in a nice area with a sea view.

McGuinness admitted he was in the provos, Vinney has stated a number of times that he could prove Adams was a provo. He even offered Adams if he would come on he would give him the questions in advance,

You understand that because he has not been convicted, and therefore subject to the Good Friday Agreement, Adams cannot allow himself be in a position to be prosecuted for IRA membership. God knows the Brits tried hard enough before the last Euro elections to try and get something on him by calling him in for questioning.

SF were quite often the only people protecting communities from criminal gangs up and down the country across the years you mentioned.

But again, you know that already.
Only against the ones that did not hand over a cut of the drug money

Could you explain this?

Doubtful. His was not a show I ever spent much time on but in the signoff he did look tired and somewhat slurred his speech. His race on this course is quite probably run.

Well if they anticipated it, Leo was not well prepared. And he saying that people on min wage & pensioners are middle class was a joke,how did he mange to spew that out?
You could always try quoting what Varadkar actually said, as distinct from making up your own version.

And VB himself is on record many times making this point. Everyone knows Adams was in the 'RA but at this point can't say he was or would be arrested and jailed. He's probably been told this by the Brit security forces as well and it's just another element of the overall deal that came with the GFA.

There we go again. Generalisations and people talking shiatsu

Surely if my son works and receives minimum wage as he starts his working life he is still regarded as middle class

That all depends on his attitude.

Many of the posters on this site have enjoyed a middle class upbringing, with all of its its associated perks, but have re-invented themselves as card-carrying members of the skanger class.

And their re-incarnations are mirrored in Dáil Eireann, where class warriors like Smirker, Rich-Boy, Shaggy's Ride and Fat Mary provide spirititual and intellectual leadership.

It's not hard to figure it out, but I can imagine that your idiotic prejudice makes it difficult for you.
Well, given that to explain it requires an iq of greater than the square root of minus one, I appreciate this rules you out.

I'd sooner you showed Tralee more respect, Johnny, and stop slandering our decent residents like that!

It's not those lads drinking topless and sunburnt up the park (even on days like today...) fault that society has abandoned them as it has.
Maybe it is there fault, Maybe they didn't give a tos when society was paying for there education. Maybe there live was messed up by the misfortune of having one or two scanks for parents. Society is a good bit down the list of maybes,

Well, a bit of 'news ... from the new tv3 schedules ...

TV3’s new current affairs programme ‘The Tonight Show’ will launch in September with presenters Matt Cooper and Ivan Yates. Broadcasting live every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday night at 11pm, Matt and Ivan will deconstruct the news and offer insight and their own very different perspectives on the stories Ireland is talking about. 

Pat Kenny will return to debate the big issues that matter to you in ‘The Pat Kenny Show’.  With the live studio audience at the heart of discussions, Pat brings his own unique take on the big questions facing Ireland in health, housing, the economy and more.

Other bits in the announcement ...

This year will see TV3 step up its commitment to News and Current Affairs output with the the launch ‘3News Ireland Hub’ on Monday, September 4th. A multi-million euro investment, the 3News Hub will be Ireland’s most technologically advanced News studio and will provide Irish audiences with enhanced news content and analysis available on more platforms than ever before. TV3’s flagship 3News at 5.30 will be broadcast live every day from this new News centre as well as 3News at 12.30 and TV3’s other bulletins on be3 at 7pm and 10pm.

Exploring key social and economic issues facing the island of Ireland, ‘David McWilliams’ Ireland’ will tackle a different topic every week in this four-part series. In a one off documentary, ‘Back to the Future’ David will also take a look at the nations spending, borrowing and continued property obsession and ask if we’re in danger of rewinding back to recession.

Leading Irish journalist and broadcaster, Sarah McInerney joins TV3’s Current Affairs line- up with ‘The Sunday Show’. The weekly show will see Sarah review the news and politics of the week with a host of invited guests and regular contributors including TV3’s new Political Correspondent Gavan Reilly.

Irish originated documentary and factual series are a major focus of TV3’s New Season.
Under the documentary strand ‘True Lives’, comes a number of compelling new documentaries including ‘Killer in the Family’, a look at murder-suicide in Ireland; ‘Baby Hater’, sees comedienne Joanne McNally question why people think she’s wrong to not want kids. Presented by Paul Williams, ‘Ireland’s Jihadis’ takes a look at the threat of radical extremism in Ireland. ‘Ireland’s Refugee Hotel’ looks at how the local community react to their new neighbours when 240 Syrian refugees arrive to an abandoned hotel in a remote town in the west of Ireland.

A new, four-part documentary series ‘The Babymakers’, will follow the stories of six couples as they embark on the often harrowing but always hopeful journey of IVF at one of Ireland’s most established fertility clinics.

New Access documentaries are at the heart of TV3’s schedules into 2018, with BAI supported series ‘Fota Wildlife Park’, ‘Along Home Shore'sand ‘The Town: A Year in Portlaoise’ all bringing us closer inside the world of some unique and truly Irish stories and characters. ‘Rare Breed: A Year on the Land’ also continues into its' fifth season. TV3 is also back on the frontline with The National Ambulance Service in Paramedics, and is surrounded with more creature comforts and stories from the animal shelter in ‘Dogtales’

That Tonight Show sounds a bit nebulous, unless they have guests on to answer embarrassing questions.

Might take a look at the Pat Kenny show.
