On Sat night I went to my first Women's Six Nations game in Donnybrook, expecting much of the pomp and ceremony that goes with the men's event.

I was disappointed, but admittedly not surprised, to realise that Michael D isn't really the president of "all" the people - just the high profile establishment people with nice boxes in the Aviva.

It's hilarious how so many people gush and fawn over MiggleDee, but if I was a feminist I have to admit I'd be wondering why he wasn't parading with the ladies rugby team on a cold wet sat evening in Donnybrook when I've never known him to miss a men's game.

He used to be a 'man of the people' (when it was vital to get him elected to the gravy train) but no more, he's moved on and is now a proper lord of all he surveys (courtesy of the taxpayer of course).

All because he didn't go to a sporting event that got a crowd of 200.

Back in the day when he cared about ordinary people he'd have turned up to a crowd of 20, now its' all about the money.

It’s a full international competition....our nation’s women’s rugby team taking on the French women’s rugby team - it’s bizarrely sexist to decide he’ll parade at every men’s game but because of the size of the audience the women aren’t worth his while...what’s the magic number - 5,000? 10,000?

I agree womens sport is under appreciated, but this is bizarre.

He doesn't just show up, it is arranged long in advance.

This is very scraping of barrels

A war crime? It was an ambush in a war. They weren't shot after surrendering. This was the Irish War of Independence. Who do you think should have investigated it as a war crime? The British?
Was it really ? Constable McDonnell wouldn't have been aware of any war, given that it was his killing that sparked the War of Indipendence.

TBF, he's more of a soccer fan than rugby.
