Swearing Lady leaves Gombeen Nation

I'd like to give a shout out to the new blog on the block Gombeen Nation, who comes dripping with bile and legitimate anger about topics as diverse as the Irish Language industry and Padraig Pearse's latent (or is that blatant?) homosexuality.

Clearly an angry man after my own heart, he's one who'll go far, assuming the death threats from Gaelgeoiri don't succeed.

On the flip-side, I have to acknowledge much wailing and gnashing of teeth in the blogosphere (and that's just from me) at the apparently imminent retirement of everyone's favourite Profanist, The Swearing Lady, pictured right, swearing as usual.

Her tales from the Arse End of Ireland will be sorely missed.

Thank you for your kind words, JC. I hope to update the blog soon. You see, I've been going through a relatively passive phase since I took up Zen meditation to help block out all the bullsh*tty nonsense going on all around me. I did this because my body had become immune to the blood pressure tablets. However, I made the mistake of checking out the parallel universe of the Irish discussion forums, and can feel the bile rising again! Arrggh!
