It's a family law dispute and the judge is most certainly not being held, as the courts have been fully evacuated.

He's already in custody.

I’d suggest all the tedious far left and far right wing oddballs around here keep the powder dry for a while longer until further details emerge. Might be a good time for you to have a shower and maybe go outside for some fresh air and a walk.

Its the default response for "certain types" when they see gun and hostage reported anywhere.

He left out the classic one "it's the religion of peace" or other such tripe as well!

There's been two. Both right (politically). And the usual brigade haven't even posted yet, so I don;t know what you're basing this on.

Now - would't it be nice to have one thread - just ONE ****ing thread - where we could actually talk about what happened and not speculate about immigration, religion, Trump or ****ing right/left wing bias?

SO FWIW:

Guy in his 40s, porbably denied access to his children. Maybe on valid grounds, maybe not. Fathers don't have equal rights in Ireland and male mental health issues are something people like to sweep under the carpet. Perhaps those are issues more relevant to the thread?
