… on air at 23.08 tonight. Details are not from tv3

Pauline Conroy, Social scientist Ralaheen Research and Design
Rita Fagan, Community Activist http://www.theatreclub.ie/spectacle/

OK boys, no sniggering or booing at the back. This is serious. Women’s issues. Something we should all have an interest in. And here tonight on #VINB to tell us about the latest from the Countess Markievicz School are Dr Pauline Conroy and Rita Fagan [maybe even Clare Daly again] and to chat to Vinny. Probably not the most riveting of tv shows, but nonetheless an important issue for society. So, quieten down …

Established in 2011, the Countess Markievicz School is a forum on women in Ireland inspired by Ireland's first female MP and first Cabinet Minister in Europe. On the occasion of the Lockout Centenary 1913 - 2013, the School will look at Women in Poverty Then and Now;
Living Conditions: 1913-2013; Moving Forward: Achieving Equality for Women. Speakers include:
Dr. Pauline Conroy;
Mary Murphy (NUIM);
Oliver Williams (Modern Day Soup Kitchens);
Clare Daly, TD;
Catriona Crowe (National Archives);
Graham Usher (Priory Hall);
Rita Fagan (Community Activist);
Niall Crowley (Equality Consultant);
Ethel Buckley (SIPTU);
Justine McCarthy (Sunday Times).
Liberty Hall, Dublin 18 May 2013, 10am

An hour of women whinging non stop about everything and anything and outdoing each other to say how much victims they all are , I am sure most people get enough of that at home without TV3 beaming it in to their front room as well.

Sometimes the show you'd least expect to be entertaining can be the best. There might be a major cat-fight. Hope Vinnie throws jelly on them if a row starts.

Sorry Vinnie and Norm, but I'm going to watch "The Valleys" on MTV (Sky 126) instead.

A veritable feast for the carnal beast within all of us. Stuffed with wall-to-wall low lives. Slags, tarts, strumpets, whores and skangers and wall to wall shagging.

Mushrooms adore manure and this show is full of it!
