I don't just mean on this site; where sad men have found the space, time and motivation to discuss women - their bodies, rights and duties. Or yet another thread about how pistes hate the Irish language because they didn't like school/are embarrassed by not speaking it /prefer other compulsory subjects twenty years ago when they were in school.

The media goes quiet and regular pol cors go off on holidays via Glenties.

Myers timing was bloody awful and it gave outraged from Golders Green the opportunity to lynch him. There was a good 3 days out of that one.

Leo V refuses to go on holidays, or at least is winning the lotto or is going up the M1 for a proud Ulster fry.

Last year we had the Olympics. That was water sports wins and ticket scandal.


The quality of threads reflect the poor quality of politics, politicians and the political anoraks. It's like poster Kant be boffered chquing spellings or being coherent.

Q: when is it safe to return to p.ie?

Summer's a great time for political anoraks watching the manouvres taking place while political leaders are on their holidays (e.g. looking at the battles between Hammond and the Brexiteers in the UK while May's been away).

The kites flown over summer are often more interesting than the busier but more pedestrian politics of the Parliamentary session.

Keep an eye on the news this Friday, bad news is always revealed on the Friday afternoon on a bank holiday weekend.

Not having had an extended summer vacation in 10 years , for reasons of opportunity rather than finance,and not working with anyone that takes one EVERY it's depressing to see so many high powered or high income political and media folks that get to go away year in year out without fail

You need a new career (or a very good health plan and a significant other while you recover from heart attack, stroke, depression, stress, breakdown). Take a bloody holiday and don't begrudge it to anyone else.

Ah, the voice of sanity and reason. Kerry people do pick 'em..

https://www.irishtimes.com/news/environment/danny-healy-rae-claims-fairy-forts-caused-dip-in-kerry-road

Independent TD Danny Healy-Rae has insisted a dip in a Kerry road which had been repaired before mysteriously reappearing is due to the presence of fairy forts.

“There are numerous fairy forts in that area,” he said yesterday. “I know that they are linked. Anyone that tampered with them back over the years paid a high price and had bad luck.”

Asked if he believed in fairies, the TD said the local belief – which he shared – was that “there was something in these places you shouldn’t touch”.

These were “sacred places” and fairies were believed to inhabit them, he said.
He first raised the issue of fairies at a Kerry County Council meeting in February 2007 after the N22, then a relatively new national primary road, developed a dip near Curraglass.

In a formal motion on the cause of the hollow, Mr Healy-Rae, then a councillor, had asked: “Is it fairies at work?”

The council’s road department replied that it was due to “a deeper underlying subsoil/geotechnical problem”.

The issue was again raised at a county council meeting last week, where Mr Healy-Rae’s daughter Maura said her father was convinced fairies were in the area.
