post title #4


We are in historic times. The first storm ever to be named by the public, Abigail is huffing its way across the UK and Ireland. In case you are wondering who the other ones are – succeeding winter months will see Barney, Clodagh, Desmond, Eva, Frank, Gertrude, Henry, Imogen, Jake, Katie, Lawrence, Mary, Nigel, Orla, Phil, Rhonda, Steve, Tegan, Vern, and Wendy hit our shores.
Although a UK and Irish initiative most of the names seem decidedly English. Clodagh looks like the only Irish guest at the wedding of an English friend who finally in their 50s found love for the first time 50s, and she’s not sure how she was invited actually as she wasn’ really that close to them but she went anyway and had a lovely time.
It goes to show one thing – the public don’t know diddly squat about naming storms. No one thought to name a storm Ahoorofa and Adivilofa . An opportunity once again wasted,
Don’t waste another opportunity – Inn Jokes November is coming around and will promise gales of laughter, frequent showers of jokes and soaring … ah forget it, you know the drill.

Our headliner is Kevin McGahern who, as presenter of the Republic of Telly is rapidly becoming one of the biggest TV names in the country but he’s not just all silk dressing gowns, ivory cigarette holders and pomade. He’s a multi-talented comedian having played his own show at Vicar Street, an award-winning playwright and also plays Sim Card in one of one of the truest things on Irish telly – The Hardy Bucks and also made a TV programme about boy racers called the Fast and the Furious that was liked by Liam Fay in the Sunday Times and he normally doesn’t like anything. He’s also gone viral with Arma-gayddon and starred in a music video for the fellow Cavanians the Stripes. Joining Kevin is Rory O’Hanlon and Jim Elliott
