    Haha that makes more sense alright! The books called Ossians Ride. It really does sound terrible, not “so bad it’s good” bad, just straight up bad work and hard to follow

    Probably better than anything this character has ever written. At least the author didn’t hide behind a plastic bag.

    Enjoyed the retelling of a fairly obscure Irish legend this week. Found a couple of sources for what he was talking about as well.

    Also, a PDF of an 1885 translation of Cath Finntrágha (The Battle of Ventry) .

    And there's a short Wikipedia article on the Battle of Ventry, as well.

    Irish mythology is fairly hard to penetrate once you start to get into the weeds of the original source poems and prose. Mis is mentioned in the linked PDF, but I don't see anything about her fleeing into the mountains after coming across her father's body. It may be somewhere else in the texts or possibly a slightly more colloquial legend which grew out of the original story.

    I tried listening to some of his stuff recently since it seems popular and for me it became quickly, very tedious.

    He would introduce some of his unfunny live sessions as hilarious and Keith Duffy as a legend.

    Most of the mental health ones just meander too much for me.

    All his stuff meanders. Takes too long to get to the point.

    I assume he’s referring to when Paddy Cosgrave became a doxxing vigilante about a year ago. I haven’t listened to BB’s podcast in a long time as the anti-government political stuff is grating after a while, but I didn’t realise he’d gone full pirate flag. Agreeing with Paddy C on this issue is problematic to say the least

    BB kept saying Bugsy Moran instead of Bugsy Malone in his recent episode, 'My mental health plan for a New Year'. WTF?

    The latest episode, about a guy who's trying to rekindle the lost Irish tradition of lifting heavy stones, was great.

    Haven't listened to BB in ages. Loved him during lockdown but finding it repetitive now.

    Same, I really enjoyed that one. Mighty men, to lift those stones.

    With his dislike of RTE i know hes just going to have an absolute field day with all of the financial stuff coming out at the moment
