Past IFA President Paudie Darley wondering where it all went wrong

Nominations closed earlier this evening for the coveted position of President of the Irish Farmers Association.

Past holders of the title have managed to amass fortunes leading to placement on the Zetor Owners Monthly annual 100 Richest Culchies List.

Controversy in recent times has led to the paring down of graces and favours previously connected with the role. The next IFA President will no longer have the title Lord Of All Livestock and will lose with it the right to graze his heifers on the rooftop of the ILAC Centre car park. A notional award but valued among the agricultural community for bragging rights particularly if the GAA season falls well for your county and the Lord Of All Livestock meets a Dublin fan in Coke Park during the All Ireland Final.

Dark Horse Emerges As Favourite To Succeed Kenny

January 6th, 2016

Housing Minister Paudie Coffey has insisted that a Dark Horse is likely to emerge to challenge for the leadership of Fine Gael when Enda Kenny, current leader and Acting Taoiseach, moves on.

“Of course it will be five to 75 years before Mr. Kenny resigns”, admitted Mr. Coffey, “but when he did I can see a Dark Horse or similar animal being in the running, if you’ll excuse the guff”.

Mr. Coffey played down suggestions that he himself was touting for Mr. Kenny’s position, although he did say he would reconsider his position if circumstances arose in which he thought for a second he had half a chance of getting away with.

Dark Horse was not available for comment, but his agent said he is monitoring the situation in a number of key leadership jobs including the managership at Manchester Utd., the next short run evil character in Fair City and night manager at the Spar.

Pep Guardiola and Bressie remain joint 4/5 favourites for the 2.15 at Kempton.

Supreme Leader Edna Where-He Declares Ireland “Best Small State in World With a Nuclear Capable Fine Gael”

January 6th, 2016

Supreme Leader of Fine Gael and Taoiseacheen Enda Where-He fronting his party's surprise manifesto launch game changer

Fine Gael has said today it had carried out a “successful” hydrogen bomb test, a claim that – if true – massively raises the stakes over the senior coalition partner’s forthcoming Pretendy Election manifesto.

Condemnation was swift with sneaky idealogical twin MaFFianna Fail and new kids on the block The Knights of Renua decrying a gross violation of UN Security Council resolutions and regional county council bye-laws regarding “possession of the Hydrogen Bomb or other WMDs in the run up to a local, General or EU election”  

FG defence supremo Simon Ko Veni hailed the announcement as a “…decisive step towards a victory ensuring decades of  peace and stability for the corporate sector”, while supreme leader Enda Where-He(?) announced to some drunks with NUJ membership at Buswells:  “This, the republic’s first hydrogen bomb test has been successfully performed at 03.30 am Irish time” 

“With the perfect success of our historic H-bomb, we Fine Gael,  the plucky party of Collins and Cosgrave have joined the rank of advanced nuclear states,” he said, adding that the test was of a miniaturised device.

When pressed for evidence the Supreme Taoiseacheen said that the device was “very very small indeed” and went on to say that “only very intelligent people or those at cabinet level may see it”

He then riffed for a few minutes on the time just yesterday he met a small worried woman in Castlebar who was afraid of the possibility that other political parties or even County Leitrim may have nuclear arsenals of their own.

“I looked her straight in the eye and told her to go in away with herself and not be worrying. Fine Gael stands with the big boys now. This is senior hurling. Eh. That. Really. Did happen….did I tell you about my Five Point Plan?”.

Tanaiste and leader of FF Lite (formerly Smoked Salmon Canapé & Reisling Party) Joan Burton and coalition chums demonstrate the proposed new Early Flood Warning System

The government today,  5th January 2016,  made a series of decisions designed to alleviate the difficulties of those subjected to flooding in their homes and businesses.

These decisions include:
1.   A bit of a hug for farmers.
2.   A bit of a hug for livestock (not feckin’ chickens though mind).
3.   The establishment of a working group to “see how we might bring in the expertise of ooooh…let’s say for instance Siteserv or INM or one of the radio stations even”
4.   The immediate sacrifice of three goats and a trade unionist to appease the mighty Den-is that he may spare us from his wrath in the future.

Other decisions include:

● Establishment of a River Shannon Co-ordination Group to establish the exact location of the River Shannon which has frankly been feckin about lately.
● The Office of Public Works to set up and run two individual “home protection schemes”. The two individual homes have yet to be selected.
● Drinks at Oireachtais Bar (sandwiches optional).
● Department of Transport to bring full report of Infrastructure Damage to government and stay in the room while Michael Noonan makes hissing noises and frowns.
● Department of Environment and OPW to meet with EU Commissioner and stay in the room with him while he makes hissing noises and frowns through an interpreter.
● Taoiseacheen and relevant  Cabinet Ministers to meet with representatives of Insurance Industry next week to look shocked at each other and mutter “jaysis lads” a lot.
● Drinks at Oireachtais Bar. (sandwiches mandatory).
● New Flood Forecasting unit to be established.
● Naptime.
