After his long and exemplary career in public service, which culminated in such landmarks for Ireland as a near total and complete economic collapse requiring the state to go cap-in-hand to paw for money from the IMF and Angela Merkel, and the most dysfunctional government since the early 80s, it has been discovered by Studenty that former Taoiseach, Brian Cowen, is now working in the McDonalds on Grafton Street.
The poor Republican running party in the US aren’t having the best campaign so far, musically speaking. First Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine, vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan’s favourite band, blasted Ryan on being the “embodiment of the machine that (their) music rages against”.

Tonight the lads give a brief run down on the Irish referendum that is set to take place tomorrow [...]
Polling day for the Fiscal Treaty referendum is fast approaching and the fact that Taoiseach Enda Kenny refuses to enter into debate on the matter continues to raise questions. The latest to voice his concern on the matter is Fianna Fáil leader and fellow advocate for a ‘Yes’ vote, Micháel Martin.
