    I just saw on Facebook Damien has apologised for an interview he conducted yesterday on the Quay with two addicts. He's gotten a lot of stick online. I haven't seen said video but am not surprised by this. He posts a lot on social media and I find his interview skills quite immature at times.

    I saw his interview with two drunk lads drinking cans on the quay. I had few cans last night hope I'm not an addict. Yeh string tiernan up never let him work again. Cancel culture nowadays your better off not apologising because what difference does it make. Damned if you do and damned if you don't. He made a mistake and has apologised. How does someone make up fir a mistake nowadays. You yourself went to the bother of making a boards account to comment on a video you said you haven't even seen.

    Why he even had to apologise is lost on me. It appears no one can say or do a thing these days without having to apologise. I dont listen to WLR so i have no idea what happened in the interview but given how easily some snowflakes are offended these days im sure it wasnt all that bad. Would i be wrong?

    Himself and Skelton always seem to push certain posters buttons on here. Usually that kind of a reaction shows that either they are saying something which is correct and people hate them for it or they are saying something which is correct and they hate themselves for not acknowledging it. Im on the side of both of them, they both deliver fantastic, accurate and skilled articles/interviews so the people of Waterford can hear the truth.

    There are a few knobs on here who seem to take everything they both do as personal attacks and insults, quite amusing really to watch them stumble around frothing at the mouth, when im sure the 2 boys Tiernan and Skelton don't even know they exist. :D:D:D

    If it's the video I've seen it sounded like DT was having the bants with then. The fella talking was in decent shape for a junkie.

    They surely are, Pat is a nice chap but a complete fruitcake, and the other man is a polite tapper, who is always a couple of quid short for a cup of tea. Tiernan probably the outsider of three in that race.

    Correction, not "certain posters".. it's one poster in particular and that's Gardner. The rest of your post is spot on :D

    Skelton, Keyes and Tiernan are all top notch. We are lucky to have them here!

    What did he have to apologise for? Doing a **** interview or?

    What I find most annoying about DT is that he suffers a bit with the old 'faux friend' ingratiation. He's shocking for it on the radio, makes a presumption that's unwarranted.

    Tbh, I think Damien likes to push the envelope. Interviewing travellers, getting on sulkys, going over to people who are clearly drunk in public etc. He’s a risk taker - and I think that makes for good radio. Sometimes he’ll get lynched like this week but sure you can’t get it right all the time.

    I actually agree with the whole snowflake thing others talked about. If you make any, even minor, mistake you get crucified these days by keyboard warriors. Think Tiernan just made a mistake but generally think he is good. But come on, have you ever read Skelton articles? They are full of “unnamed sources” and “could not get confirmed before going to print”. He comes up with a good headline he wants and fits the facts to suit it. It is complete tabloid sensationalism.

    Are we ****! if anyway decent DT would still be with RTE while the other 2 are working for local newspapers which tells its own story, why haven't they been picked up by national media?
    as Muttley79 stated "3 male handbags of waterford" is an excellent description.
    One of Skelton's finest moments on Twitter was when he was bitching at the phone network over not paying his bill for months. What did he expect? 'Hi im Darren, im Waterford's finest and im not paying my bill this month!' What employee does not have a mobile phone from their employer when they are a journalist?
    Another local journalist on social media last night was calling a successful broadcaster "a failed politician and bookie" in retaliation at his €350 covid payment. while in the game twice as long as Ivan Yates, i cannot for the life of me remember that local journalist ever producing/facilitating an interview etc that you look back on and say that was decent or thats a podcast that you would listen back to again. But then again he has bought himself 150 likes and personnel pat on the back. probably a few on here liked it also ;)

    I know the lad in the cap. In fact he went to school with me. He was an excellent hurler and played for a local club.

    What happened to him? Is he homeless or working etc? He could be a top lad for all I know, I just wonder what has him hanging around the Quay drinking cans?

    At least Damien Tiernan and Dermot Keyes are actual Journalists. How Darren Skelton was given a job by the News and Star is beyond me. What qualifies him write for them? He didn’t study Journalism, as far as I know has no prior experience and has somehow wound up writing front page content for them.

    he's not the only one at the news and star without qualifications. Just go to the sports section

    Darren Skelton must be a millionaire. He is able to live completely rent-free 24/7 in some peoples heads. :D:D:D

    I thought I was having deja vu, read that exact same comment on the Reddit link though I'm nearly sure. Same person maybe

    Here's an example for you of them supposedly doing their job!!The news and star a few weeks ago was obviously in trouble to come up with a story to sensationalise the front page of the paper.they get a woman who reports for them to leave her estate,walk over to another estate on a Saturday night to hide behind a car,ring the guards wasting their time and takes a picture at an angle claiming they were all grouped together outside somebody's house playing music till the all hours of the morning.meanwhile it turns out none of this was true.there was no music and they were sitting at their own homes but the angle it was taken at makes them look as if they were all together.this goes out on the front page of a 'local' newspaper and Damien tiernan runs with the story.now to me that's not doing a job that's coming up desperately with anything to sell the local paper.honestly yeah wouldn't get it from the sun paper

    Sorry now just trying to get this straight in my head but did they actually just randomly pick a house in an estate and send the woman ? Like as in just go to the next estate closest to you hide behind a car and take picture if you see someone grouped together?

    Ever hear the expression don't feed the troll? That's exactly what you are doing and giving him/her/it the attention it craves. Trolls wither and die when not given attention and although some of the whingeing on here is annoying, equally annoying is the complete and utter failure of people to just not bite...
