I remember that guy who bought the Kowloon Bridge being asked about it on RTE news, probably by Charlie Bird and yer man effing and blinding at him (swearing bleeped out). He was due to appear on the Late Late Show that Friday so I watched in anticipation expecting that hed tell Gaybo to eff off but was disappointed when he just did a regular swearing free interview.

It's a shame they don't put up full Six One news episodes from indexed for every day they have them.

I'm trying to think of something clever to say, some sort of witty pun - but I wouldn't be bothered. I'm just gonna let my true feelings out, in a more... pure, sincere and unadulterated way.

F*** you RTÉ! F*** you, you shower of absolute c*nt-headed, w*nk-faced, f***-headed. garbage... gobbling, sh*t...mongering, f***-pedaling c*ntbuckets!

I love everything about this report. And I’m going to go pearl-clutchy for a moment - Paraquat is awful stuff.

Yes I dip into this regularly. Actually sometimes when the world gets too hectic I look at it to relax. Some of the articles really take you back in time, you forget where you are.

I love the RTE Archives page

I grew up in the 80s and it's great to look back at the state of the place back then.

Some of my favorites are the Hall's Pictorial Weekly intros where they showcase a different town/village each week in the opening credits.

But this is my favorite
The Art Of Lilting from 1985
This guy is brilliant
