You just have to feel sorry for them, don’t you?

Who? What? Not being the most alert morning person, I had to ask what my female colleague (let’s call her The Mammy) was talking about. “You know those women, the ones married to their jobs, who don’t have children; most of them don’t even have husbands, you know – that kind of person. You just […]

Does that come with a cape? #Aras 11 Rolls On…

Aras 11

Today we had the Matt Cooper’s Today FM Aras Debate. Highlights included “Grey Gay” Mitchell announcing he’d be fine with Ireland re-entering the Commonwealth and reasserted that he’d welcome Christians into the Aras (well, after all, it’s about the togetherness of it all isn’t it?). Davis reiterated that she wasn’t in it for the cash […]

In Twitterville everyone can hear you scream

I’ll admit it up front… I love Twitter, passionately, enthusiastically and at times, somewhat obsessively. I love the immediacy of it and see it as a great way of sharing views with people both well and lesser known to me in the “real world”, for breaking news and tracking interesting blogs.

Why the Áras 11 Campaign is working

As something of a political nerd and newshound, I love electioneering and have nothing but admiration for those who put themselves forward for public office, whether or not I agree with their individual positions. And so far, the Race for the Áras has, without doubt, sated my inner Malcolm Tucker. To date we’ve had the […]

Sometimes keeping schtum – the real meaning of free speech?

This week, in response to the UK’s proposed equality bill, the Pope decided to row in and express what was, perhaps unsurprisingly, a conservative opinion. I am, and have always been, liberal in my political leaning (albeit, I would argue, without the bleeding heart!). I believe in a woman’s right to choose, gay marriage and […]

I’m sweating spinal fluid here – is everyone working as hard as me ?

This isn’t everybody folks, but there is a certain kind of She Boss who creates a culture that is demoralising, negative and soul-wrenching for the 40-plus hours a week you’ll spend in work. If you’ve had one, you’ll know what I mean. If not, think Devil Wears Prada’s Miranda Priestly crossed with a PMT-ridden Machiavelli.
