Coles, according to the census there are 1.5 million people who can speak Irish. I imagine that this is the number who can actually speak Irish as opposed to those who learned it in school but can't speak it within a few years of graduating. I fall into the latter category having had good spoken and written Irish at one time but now I have to read your line above a few times to understand it completely. And I could not properly give directions to someone now on the fly. Do you think there are really 1.5 million people who can speak it?

I've only heard one Irish conversation in Kilkenny in the last ten years. A friend who's in to her Irish tried to start up a weekly Irish language social evening in a local pub, a few Irish teachers turned up and it didn't last very long.

I dealt a lot with the public and when someone greeted me in Irish I'd asked if they could speak it, the usual response was "like fuck I do". Now this thread is about Pat Kenny, I agree, he's a complete.........

A lot of people seem confused about the 30% paycut, many think it's on top of the cuts the top guys already took, when it is an broadening of the scope of the cut, i.e. no change to Pat Kenny but now applies to other less well paid staff.

So can we expect a Mr Duffy from D4 to be calling into LiveLine during the week to complain about how the cuts are hurting ordinary decent working people & not the Banker scum who got us into the shite ? :x

Long time coming after the court battle but 10 years later, we've got boomtime prices and we're back in business

In August, property firm, Bartra Capital Property - founded by developer Richard Barrett - paid €3.1m for the Maple Tree House site adjacent to the Kennys’ home and also bought a separate and adjoining 0.51 acre site


Their objection is clear:

That's high quality jargon; even Ireland's best paid presenter would pay good money for that 8)
