Yes, great. Stephen Fry is one of the cleverest, funniest, most sincere men to appear on our TV screens and in documentaries of all sorts. I hope his appearance will be well advertised so I don't miss it. Myers, on the other hand is one of the most unfunny prats of Celtic Tiger Ireland who is long past his sell-by date! Long past time he is quietly retired, preferably to Siberia!Fair play to him.
In fairness, what Myers wrote was: "As a celebrity, a luvvie, a Jew and a homosexual, he is untouchable." The context makes it clear that Myers is not attempting to denigrate Fry for these characteristics, merely for his views.Stephen Fry tp appear on TG4 Soap 'Ros na Rún'.
This is a thread to discuss, in English, the fact that English actor Stephen Fry is to appear, speaking Irish on the TG4 programme 'Ros na Rún', which is in Irish, and to speculate on the effect this may have on the constitution and well being of Kevin Myers.
Myers, who wrote an article last year referring to the famous TV presenter, actor, and Apple Mac enthusiast as " a celebrity, a luvvie, a Jew and a homosexual", is not known for his love of the Irish language in general, or TG4 in particular.
The idea of this Ros na Rún featuring a speaking part by the man he referred to as "this Fry-creature" may not bode well for his blood pressure.
Having the right to offer a different opinion on a matter of concern is a pillar of freedom - Kevin Myers, Columnists - Independent.ie
