    Gavin is a head of knowledge when it comes to sport. He's great I think

    As head of sport yes, as a sports reporter/presenter no.

    does any one miss liz reddy?

    i dont!

    Tiernan gets a lot of bad press but depending what side of bed he gets up out of he can be very good. Particularly yesterday. He is good on the serious issues. His uhhhing and ahhing towards kids would wither you though!

    It's also down to the editors of these papers!

    I know a guy who sent in a few photographs for consideration for

    publication but he wanted a fee for usage but he was denied by the editor!

    The images were fairly decent in my opinion!

    Photographers always get ripped off by publications if they are not strong, trouble is then they just say no thanks.

    This is absolute peak dermot keyes;

    https://waterford-news.ie/2021/02/02/theatre-fundraiser-is-jogging-the-memory/?fbclid=IwAR1_IL0wFq2ksEfmpFVdGYx06wzioXl2WBceYwUYQL7-G3dzm3hq9lWzANM

    820 words - about 20 sentences.

    In these 20 sentences he includes the word " I " some 17 times and " Me " some 9 times and for further clarification about what the article is really about he includes 2 photos of himself!

    Some journalism there - in fairness Skelton and rest of News and Star crew have their finger on the pulse on the all the big issues, North Quays, Hospital and WIT this week

    id somewhat disagree there, but journalism is a very tough game nowadays, at least they try

    It's worth going back to listen to DT's interview today with John Paul Phelan. JJP tore DT apart. DT tried to use a sound bite from Brendan Howling yesterday on South East Radio and tried to state something totally different to what BH said.

    Skeltons article in the N&S is complete trash. His only source is 1 no. Lecturer.

    The us vs them ****e from DT and DS is bottom of the barrel stuff.

    I actually find myself agreeing with Wanderer 78. What do you mean?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,029 ✭✭✭ Gardner


    What do I mean?? A family whether it was them or not were forced to come out and say "Just to clear our name this article has nothing to do with our family and we have not taken any legal advice what so ever. All we wanted was extra help for our father and mother and thankfully we got it."

    The article should never have seen the light of day in the first place. If someone wants to take action against UHW, their case nor subject involving it should be discussed in any forum whether it's print or social media until the matter is closed legally. It's just fueling anger and ****e talk on social media. Some of the comments under the article are beyond beggers belief.

    Half 3 in the morning and you're still on yer rant box. Did Franky Byrnes not read out your letter or did Tony Weldon not read yer nannys' birthday request in 1979 ? And have Ireland's Own not been printing your penpal requests ?

    You just have a down on media and journalists. They're in business to run stories FFS !!! To make people talk and to get some people all het up and irate, touché ?

    How were we supposed to know any of this, since you didn't mention it when you linked to the article?

    There are no comments on the article as far as I can see. Or are you referring to comments on Facebook or some other site?

    Im closing this thread now, it blatantly obvious that this thread was set up by someone who has a clear agenda against a couple of people and didnt have the balls to post it using their own account. The new account was created on the 22nd Jan, made one post and hasnt been on line since 2 mins after posting the thread.

    If anyone has an issue with me closing it, then report me and this post and another mod can then decide if they want to reopen it. Oh and I have permanently banned that new account also.
