Meet Your Local TD at the Local Pub (1)

from stockie by phone from freddie's;

A Tale of Two Harps

There I was sipping a pint in Freddie's in Caherdaniel when it came to my attention that this wonderful hostelry also serves as clinic for our former Ceann Comhairle John O'Donoghue. I looked up some of our TD websites to see where they might hold such clinics. I had to stop at five - 5!! Look up your local man's site and see where he/she might be, waiting to meet happy constituents.

All over the country pubs are closing and these boyos give absolutely no help in keeping these social centres open - even though they use them as social centres themselves.

It costs me €20 to get a hackney home from my local if I forget to bring the jammer with me. And as for smoking? See Grandad for some views on that.

There is a very simple reason for that.

They can go on the piss any time they like and then claim it all back as "legitimate expenses".
