A wonderful, exhuberant and life-enhancing production from the students of Colaiste Lurgan – Riptide le Vance Joy ‘as Gaeilge’
Revealed: the introduction of the water charges in Ireland is simply a ruse to collect more money for the Bondholders. Film seems to repeat Ming Flanagans statements so I suggest you jump after the first time to 10.15 where ‘yerman’ the Capo, Mr Tierney gives the usual mealy-mouth non-reponsive response with lots of deh’s dese’ dose’ tru’s and wit’s that we have come to expect from the ‘educated Irish’.
At last, the people laugh at the capo government – a bit like being tied to a post and being shot for all the listening the ‘elected masters’ will give it.
People power was shown again on the streets of Dublin on Saturday 11 October 2014 when 130,000 people took to the streets to protest against the water charges. It will make absolutely no difference whatsoever – there will be water charges whatever the people want. The government are not the government – they are the lackeys or to use a borrowed word from the camps of the 1940’s, they are the ‘CAPO’s’ employed (having been ‘elected’ by the same protesters to rule over them’) to introduce draconian measures against their own people on behalf of the masters. note: hardly an [More]
The world of Ireland was about to change forever – and for the worse. This film depicts a wonderful bygone and small city.
Queen Queen Victoria in Dublin, Ireland 22nd June, 1897. Her open carriage, drawn by four black horses, stops by the camera position. She nods at the crowd repeatedly. The carriage stops and she is given huge basket of flowers. Two large highlanders ride the back of the coach. Does this film show a people who do not love and respect the monarchy? Do they look like a crowd craving for republicanism? And would just look what it got us 100 years later.
An absolutely fabulous piece of history. Wonderful to see the Dublin it was at the time before the scurrilous took it to their right to rule and ruined the country. A city – albeit O’Connell St as it is called now – today filled with greater depredation than ever it was in so called poorer times. Watch and enjoy.

Senator David Norris, who is an absolute gentleman, comes to the aid of a protest group against evictions being illegally carried out on behalf of the banks and Knight, Frank Rutley Auctioneers. It is noticeable the directors who were there remained absent and refused to come out and defend the indefensible. This type of management is all too common in our modern age. Not even the decency to meet with an Irish Senator is beyond belief. What a bunch of ill-mannered scurrilous bums.
If ever there was proof that ACCOUNTANCY IS THE CANCER OF SOCIETY you can see it fully working here. Here is the way the tax system works so that multi-national companies don’t pay tax equal to their share income in comparison to you or I but they also don’t break any laws in doing so and frankly you or I would do exactly the same if we could. Indeed, it could be possible if enough of us in similar situations could get together and employ our own set of accountants. If we could do away with income tax, we could [More]
Today, it would be ‘Irish Partners’ I suppose, but in 1963 women who were married were unlike to be employed so coming together like to refute the imposition of a new ‘turnover tax’ was a promising protest. It didn’t make a blind bit of difference of course – only continuous violence and public disorder, history shows, seems to make a difference when governments impose unjust or unfair taxes on the people they are ‘elected’ to ‘govern’.
Here we have a classic case of Irish management and tax duplicity highlighted by the very able and intelligent Richard Boyd Barrett but i would have liked it better if he had been more succinct in his questioning to enable the T-Shark to HAVE to answer the question more appropriately. I think we are all aware of the need to provide a super play ground for internationalists so as to pump up the rhetoric on Irish industry but in truth we also have to accept it means we get to eat the crumbs off their table.
If you really want a good laugh. If you really want to know the best of Dublin wit and humour. If you really want to know what ‘real’ Dubliners are like you ahve to see this. It’s absolutely brilliantly funny. We could do with some of these lovely people in “Dole” Eireann.
