Wow. He made them look both stupid and shifty

Kildare farmer objects to €8bn Intel investment...

The only one looking out for Thomas Reid is himself. Is he not entitled to do that ?? Easy to say never mind about down the road when one fundamentally doesn't care what happens to him down the road. The very people guessing that Intel will go if this and that doesn't please them in the future do

Kildare farmer objects to €8bn Intel investment...

It would be a nearer comparison to say how would people like to have their dream home and their dream job cpo'ed from them. It's not just his home but his job as well. There is no where else he'd rather be or nothing else he'd rather be doing. Regarding the current objections, he is probably paran

Kildare farmer objects to €8bn Intel investment...

It is a sad world if there is no space anymore for a bit of eccentricity, if we are all so up ourselves that we are offended to the point that we should ridicule the likes of TR or other "hermit farmers" like him. Besides he is not out to impress anyone mostly since he doesn't need anything from the

Kildare farmer objects to €8bn Intel investment...

He isn't holding anyone responsible for his own lifestyle choices but some people seem to be holding him responsible for theirs. When others are cuddled up with their families every night, he is alone. Different strokes for different folks but each must own their own choices. He seems content with h

Kildare farmer objects to €8bn Intel investment...

I don't think it would be in any danger of collapse. It is so close to Dublin, effectively a Dublin suburb with excellent transport links, it would attract other businesses or be very suitable for houses for the Dublin market

Kildare farmer objects to €8bn Intel investment...

All that shows is that your property plays a very minor role in who you are whereas his property is literally an extension of himself. Watching the programme last night, what good would the whole of Co Meath be to him or 10 million in the bank. He has no need of riches but would be lost, finished wi

Family forced to squat in house....

They have us over a barrel because of the children. Imo this business whereby we enable them to stay dependant and they have as good a life as many by staying dependant can't be fixed without totally hardening of hearts and minds over the issue of homeless children. But you can't really have childre

RTE Investigates programme on greyhound racing industry

On a holiday in West Cork a few years ago, we were driving on this little country road, the type with grass growing in the middle of the road and we came upon a group of hares sitting smack bang in the middle of the road. They sat there, bold as brass, not budging an inch, a bit of a standoff betwee

RTE Investigates programme on greyhound racing industry

I somehow doubt the industry is going to be disbanded so would there be any merit in a major campaign to get people to consider rescue greyhounds as really good family pets ? They are very gentle and surprising lazy, I believe. so easy to manage and it might just save the poor creatures from being b

Luke Kelly statue vandalised

I'd say Luke Kelly would be very forgiving. He might even admire the artistic licence taken. One might say it was mindful vandalism as opposed to mindless vandalism seeing as they very carefully gave him a pair of sunglasses rather than just chucking paint all over him

Greystones school - gender neutral uniforms to be introduced.

Another thing women do in bathrooms is pass the time by the way fixing their hair or something if say their friend was running late and they didn't want to sit in a bar by themselves or at a function where they didn't know anybody else. The bathroom can be a great sanctuary at times. And even if you

Greystones school - gender neutral uniforms to be introduced.

The toilet itself is one thing but there is usually a wash room attached where women apply their make up, fuss over their hair, change their tights, have a few words in private with a friend away from the company waiting for them outside, have a laugh or a cry over something. I've seen all those thi
