Excellent one this, doing the rounds on Facebook. They rarely make such mistakes out in Ballymount in fairness.
I’m really missing Vincent Browne. Nothing wrong with Sarah Carey, I’d always read her pieces in The Irish Times and she’s more than decent on d’telly, I would say to the point where I can see her landing a role somewhere else down the line. Yet Tonight With Vincent Browne is the late night fireworks that you stay up for, no matter what time your alarm is set for the next day. I miss seeing Vincent, the left-leaning rising voice of reason, lash into people. He’s come a long way from his days with Young Fine Gael anyway. Sam from this here blog uploaded a gem over on his UCD Hidden History site with a piece dealing with student politics in UCD in 1967. Look at young Vincent! Talk about rubbishing that great Father Ted line about all getting more right wing as we get older….
Vincent Browne will return to the programme on Monday September 6th. I look forward to it.
