Make no mistake. This is a Big Win for the Irish working class over Europe's power elite, and it's a big win for Europe over the N.W.O. Watch to see if other E.U. countries ratify the treaty or not, despite or in support of Ireland. I'm thinking, however, that the Emerald Isle is setting an important precedent here.

Former Sinn Fein top dog, Denis Donaldson, is found dead in Donegal home. I'm sure it had nothing to do with the fact that he was a low-down, no-good, informing British spy. IRA and Sinn Fein deny responsibility. Personally, I think it was this guy.

Get ready folks, the resident mick is about to raise the roof with a little music and story about one of my favorite Celtic bands, the Chieftains. And if you listen close enough you just might hear an astute email from one "Tim from Michigan." That'd be meself, as you may know.

Not that it's going to matter because they all drive like fackin' eejits, but Ireland has reduced speed limits on higways already littered with infamous "Black Spots". Try not to be shocked by this old story.

Up the Ui Neill!! Scientists at Trinity College, Dublin believe they have found Ireland's seed-sowing equvalent to Ghengis Khan. He was called Niall of the Nine Hostages and he is said to be Ireland's most fertile male.

It's official, the Irish Language has officially been recognized by the EU as a "working language," whatever the fuck that means. I think it has something to do with being able to order a drink in Irish speaking areas and pay for it with the Euro.

Amn't I back? No, but soon will be once'd the refund money starts pouring in. Let's just say I was spending my time In Darkest Africa, and leave it at that.
For now, I am helping to save the Tara/Skyrne Valley in Ireland. The Irish government is proposing the building of a major roadway through one of the oldest archaeological and mytho-historical sites in all of Europe.
The place still has much to teach us, as recent New Discoveries there have proven.
Here's Archaeology.org's take on the sitch.
Watch this space for my triumphant return in "Timmy242 Versus the World Crime League."
Thanks to Dave for not booting me off for being the No-Internet-Havin', drunken Irish slacker I am of want to be.
See you soon.

Sure and begorah! Your man, George W. Bush, was in Ireland O' the weekend for the EU-US summit. Truth be told, this was actually the Bush administration's latest attempt at nation building. Bush and the Mrs. then headed out to Dromoland Castle for a meeting with the taoiseach (Prime Minister) where he was greeted by (apparently) St. Patrick and a group of protesters who would 'drive' him out of the land like a snake and style him as the new MacBeth (what with all the bloodshed and all...) An Irish protest? Never!
"Thanks, Taoiseach. We've got to go to Turkey."
Last immortal words from our President while in Ireland. Check out the text of some of the comments made. Bush mentions Turkey alot. In fact, it turns out to be his biggest laugh line.
