Ferriter is a bore. Arrogant too. Not even the best historian in UCD - not by a long shot.

Two pals of mine was taught by him in O'Connell Schools many years ago - and they always maintained that he was a nasty teacher (in fairness, they were diehard soccer players and, according to them, MO'M absolutely hated soccer!)

He's a huge greyhound fan too and I don't have much time for the greyhound racing/coursing fraternity.

Larry Gogan.

Katie Taylor

Maybe Bill O Herlihy.

My favourite but not sure what others think Brendan Grace
It's well known that Bonnar is a prick.

I'd nominate Enya. Not one for the limelight and her music has a nice quality. Have never heard anyone complaining about her. Not here even so that's saying something.

Is there a list of acceptable accents before we look at achievements such as Olympic gold medal and undisputed champion of the world holding all belts, never done by anyone. And even though I hate religion, I never formed an opinion based on someone having a personal faith.
