Well Summer is well gone at this stage but it was a different Summer to previous years in that we got a heatwave for a few weeks- temperature over 30 degrees celsius and a cloudy haze for the rest of the Summer. Farmers didn’t appreciate the dry spell as their crops wouldn’t grow without rain and many farmers are likely to post a big negative for the year. Alot will depend on what kind of winter we get long/short, dry/wet and what kind of government aid is provided. Not a good year for farmers by any means.
On the other hand it was nice to get some good weather, you could go to the beach / Ballybunion and enjoy yourself though I am told the water was pretty cold. It was a relief that it wasn’t pounding rain all the time as previous years have done. Sometimes the “Summer” is as bad as the winter which is bad for people’s spirits, pockets though good for travel agents.
Hopefully the Summers will improve for us in the coming years. I live in hope.
Well well how time has flown.
it is all of ten years ago to the day when I was attacked by 2fm Dj’s Colm Hayes and Jim Jim Nugent. They failed to name me directly but put stuff out on “2010” (my old blog ferdia2010). It was very racy stuff indeed ! They asserted that i downloaded, “snuff”movies -untrue , stuff about “Whips” and whipping people, bisexuality and of course the smell !!
My character was assassinated and made to be globally humiliated but whatever happened their reason that they had to rerun the “Lisbon treaty” disappeared overnight and the Djs started putting out Death threats saying that they would “wrap a towel around my head” if i didn’t shut up. I wouldn’t be silenced or act guilty for those bastards At the same time i remember that my atm card wouldn’t work with the machines and I had to go into the bank to get money. That was a strange thing to happen.
Time went on and in September a member of the audience on Questions and Answers asked whatever happened to “crack of the whip stuff” they failed to answer the Question and the same night they rolled out the “Bank Guarantee” and more or less drowned out what they had done .
Attempts were made to sue RTE but the state did everything possible to block me from suing, they deleted my emails before i got them, the comments were stopped on my blog and I am sure they intercepted the post as well. I instructed a solicitor to sue RTE but he fobbed me off saying he hadn’t got a reply but then refused to sue when i found out he had got a reply. Also i had written to Sinn Fein asking for help but they refused to do anything , it was like be given a penalty kick and then refusing to take it. Something must be very wrong like being involved in the thing in the first place.
Brian Cowen and his government should have fallen but were kept in power by outside agencies .
In November (of 2008) i started my campaign and i started to assail the Dj’s who had defamed me, the pair of pricks Colm Hayes and Jim Jim Nugent, sewer rats they are . They couldn’t back up anything and became very quiet . I nearly got it out what they had done when events in Mumbai India blew me off the agenda again. I tackled the minister Mary Hanafin whose idea it was to come at me but met with stony silence despite being “flamed”.
My efforts to sue RTE and whoever else was involved came to nothing. The Lisbon treaty was put through without their scandal coming out. So its there to be undone. The whole episode had a serious effect on my health and i was quiet ill.
I dedicate this song “Nothing has been Proved ” to the DJs and Mary Hanafin.
Health disservice June 7, 2017

John McManus in the IT puts it very neatly…
St Vincent’s encapsulates one of the main – if not the main – structural problems within the Irish health service: the interweaving of the private and public hospital systems and all the perverse incentives its creates. At its very simplest private hospitals cannot prosper unless the public hospital system fails. Organisations such as St Vincent’s and individuals such as consultants with a foot in both camps have a vested interest in maintaining this status quo – if not to exacerbate it.
In the news is that one Freddie Scappaticci also know as “Stakeknife” has been arrested by British Police at a undisclosed location. The past activities of the man are also under investigation by Chief constable Jon Boutcher and his squad. “Stakeknife” is believed to be involved in up to fifty killings with some at the behest of his handlers in British intelligence and others just to cover up for himself. He is believed to be a high level (but not the highest) informer in the I.R.A for the British army. He was “outed” as a tout by “Martin Ingram” and Greg Harkin in their book “Stakeknife” and quickly fled Belfast despite initial denials. It would seem that the Brits have given him up but its unlikely that they will allow the goings of British intelligence to be aired. Despite this it will be interesting to watch.
In the news of late is Rathkeale, not for good news apparently. Armed police are to be deployed to this small town in the run up/during and after Christmas period. Large numbers of “travellers” come to the town each Christmas and its become quite rowdy time for Rathkeale. Haven’t heard of a lot of trouble happening but the deployment of armed police at Christmas time is becoming a regular event.
These visitors constantly drive up and down the town in swoosh cars which are actually rented for the Christmas period. They are annoying and cause traffic jams, feral children are also a problem. Don’t see why they all come to Rathkeale as they are living their lives elsewhere. Some business in town do well from the influx of “Visitors” but they give a bad image of Rathkeale and many houses are boarded up for the rest of the year.
Rathkeale becomes half a Ghost town. The “Traveller” community is over represented in Rathkeale and more should be done to encourage people to live there and more business/employment attracted to the town.
On the news at nine o’ clock is the announcement that Gerry Adams is to step down as leader of Sinn fein. Gerry Adams has held the position since 1983 which is over thirty four years, quite a achievement in a modern political party.
Gerry Adams has led a chequered career in Sinn fein, he ended the “armed struggle” alongside Martin McGuinness who died earlier this year and signed up for the controversial Good friday agreement. He has built up a political organisation with seats at the Dáil, Westminster and Stormont assemblies. The party has become a lot more numerous than during the “armed struggle” as seen during their ard fheis in Dublin. However the movement he leads tends to take one step forward followed by two steps backward. He put in a highly suspicious performance during the 2007 Dáil elections. letting Micheal McDowell land some punches on him about Farc and the sum of twenty five million allegedly obtained from them despite knowing that some PD’s were “ansbachers”. Nobody asked him to explain his showing and he largely lost the election for Sinn fein. Some form of blackmail seemed to have been used. Adams led/leads a movement that is chock full of informers, touts and spies. One wonders what the future holds for Sinn fein and will they get their referendum on Irish unity in the years to come, everybody needs to play for team Ireland to win that one.
History will write on Gerry Adams and his legacy in the fullness of time.
People with awful lot to hide.
OOH No we don’t !
Our esteemed Taoiseach Leo Varadklar has put his foot in it, by saying on an interview with BBC spotlight that more than 50%+1 wouldn’t be sufficient for there to be an United Ireland and consensus (general agreement according to Google) would be required, Now hold on a minute here when was “consensus” ever required when it came to the north… In the never never more like. Making up my mind on our present taoiseach but its clear he is a blue-shirt of the first order, he is half Indian which means he should know better to come out with this pseudo-unionism. Lord Kilclooney aka John Taylor of the “moderate” OUP thanked Leo Varadkar for his “realism”, no thank his blue-shirt.
The loyalists are full of threats of course but like all bullies don’t amount to much when they are stood up to. One thing they never was a unionist majority in Ireland, Donegal remains the most northern county in Ireland and Donegal, Cavan and Monaghan are part of ulster too but where excluded from “Northern Ireland” for the simple reason they would be too many Catholics.
Irish people as a whole were never consulted whether they wanted a border or not it was just forced on them. However one loyalist politician I do agree with is Nelson McCausland when he says that the taoiseach’s comments are “a recognition that the main political parties in the Irish Republic have no real interest in Irish unity“.
Fianna fail and fine gael have little interest in uniting Ireland or providing jobs for their people, they feel they have a god given right to scams and want nothing to rock the boat.
