Why blog…

Such a perfectionist! It’s odd trying to write a first post of a blog you hope will be some way successful. How this success will be measured, I have nooooo idea! But what the hey, Bebo is old and decidedly boring and Facebook? Well, how many add-ons does one website need in order to keep up to modern standards? “You’ve been offered a pint at Happy Hour!!” Whoop-de-do! There’s only so much of that I can take.

So instead, this blog has been set up. Due to the completion of college and the search for a job being somewhat disjointed and slow, using the journalistic skills of the past and the technology of the future (jeez I sound about 90 now) this blog will take a look at Ireland and beyond. In a quirky way. Sometimes stupid, sometimes serious, but always entertaining! I hope.

Anyhoo, in case there’s any confusion regarding ‘waffler’, the title is taken from one of the best ever exchanges in the Oireachtas from December 5, 1994. In front of a committee, and being accused by Fine Gael’s Gay Mitchell of hiding behind a ‘smokescreen’, our present Taoiseach Bertie Ahern snapped at poor Gay saying:

‘Nobody is smoke screening. If you stop waffling we might get some work done. You are a waffler. You have been years around here waffling.’

Ah, Bertie. What would you do without him, eh?

PS: All messages, comments, criticism is greatly received. Add me to your blogroll! But please, any court cases and I’ll refer you to my solicitor! Enjoy!

  1. Have at it.

  2. Hi Eoin
    I’ve recently been to Ireland in the county of Meath. I didn’t know Ireland very well but now I love it (the picture above fits very well although Irish roads are sometimes a bit bumpy 🙂 ). Hope to see some interesting posts of you about the country!

  3. Herbst, the picture above is probably one of the best roads in the country!! 😉
