  • Nice to see Ireland actually win something. Irish athlete's seem to always come last and Irish people seem to celebrate mediocrity and just participating which is very odd. Great to see these two lads with the proper mentality. These guys wouldn't celebrate losing, they have a winning mentality which is very rare in Ireland. Unlike the swimmer and relay team who were "delighted" coming last. The Irish media have a lot to answer for, always hyping up coming last

  • ‘Fintan called “Up! Go” and I was like “Bit early for this now, but I suppose we’d better try it alright.”’ “The Plan is we’ll do something similar to what we always do.” Could anything sound more Irish?

    Knappa22Knappa22חודש לפני
    • Maybe something actually in Irish instead of English I suppose. Though tbf to those Cork lads, at least they still have some phonetic features from the Irish language in their English. More than the Dublin Gaelscoil types do when they try to speak Irish using English phonetics completely removed from those of Irish Gaelic. Regional dialects tend to be homogenised though. The anglicised middle class Dublin/New Hiberno-English and global Anglo-American ways of speech will probably prevail

The anti-vaxxer movement has negatively impacted herd immunity and resulted in outbreaks of presentable diseases.
