US Vice President vists Shannon Airport (69)

The US Vice President Mike Pence has met with US troops at Shannon Airport.

The American troops are on their way to Iraq and were also in Shannon for a refuelling stop

🇺🇸🇮🇪🇮🇱 allies and we need to build a strong trade agreement and economic ties as we exit EU.

Simply a disgrace. Makes a nonsense of Ireland's neutrality... let them refuel in a NATO-allied MILITARY air facility.

Shannon should not be a stopover, staging post or showplace for US military. Particularly unacceptable to have a photoop with troops going to Iraq after that country has asked US to withdraw. Allowing this to happen damages Irelands global rep/role in peacebuilding & disarmament

Funny,you’re gone all quiet on the impeachment front since republicans actually took piss out of ye😊

Get the f**k out!

Poll: Do you read political party manifestos before casting your vote? (25)

The general election is just two weeks away.

Poll: Do you read political party manifestos before casting your vote?

No i don’t read fairytales anymore

Don’t need to 🤨we all know sinnfeinireland want to do right for the country whereas most of the other parties just keep spinning the same repetitive 💩 and then turn their backs on the people who helped them to get there while giving themselves a pay rise for doing a good job🚮

Bible is probably more factual. And thats complete horse shite. Vote for some one different. See if that changes anything. Do it at least once. Can it be any worse than these clowns. Ff fg? Hardly

Yes. Then I have a good laugh and wonder how they think they’ll achieve any of it.

I never vote for anyone that just calls to my door a week or two before voting, so I just read fake news and cast my vote

The Green Party promises free student travel, public housing and a Universal Basic Income (24)

Party leader Eamon Ryan criticised other parties for their lack of ambition when it comes to climate action.

The Green Party promises free student travel, public housing and a Universal Basic Income

They’ll promise the world and do nothing! They failed in government already and are completely out of touch with the electorate of this country! I’m all for environmentally friendly initiatives but tye greens are to militant and delusional to be voted for.

The Greens caused a lot of suicides during the celtic tiger

I remember the last decade of change that the greens gifted us with.

Their basic income policy would sort the pensions debacle out in one dell swoop.

Their Universal Income would solve the mess around welfare and pensions.

Three children found dead in Dublin house are named (23)

Gardaí have named the three children whose bodies were found in a house in Co Dublin last night as brothers and sister Conor McGinley, aged nine, Darragh, aged seven, and Carla, aged three.

Gardaí name three children found dead in Dublin

Children are the most innocent of all. Their lives precious and not to be tampered with. No one should find an excuse for this. Family / mental issues or both. Three children. The world has no greater evil to offer but this.

God this is just so sad 😢😢

There is a focus on talking to someone if you need help. Sometimes people with MH issues are not ABLE to talk about it. More should be done to raise awareness in spotting signs & symptoms in others in the hope that advice can be given or intervention can happen before too late.

That poor poor man, and his poor children. RIP

🙏🙏🙏 rest in peace beautiful little ones. Heartbreaking 💔 xxx

Green Party manifesto features universal basic income (23)

A universal basic income, free public transport for students and light rail systems for Cork and Galway are amongst the promises being made by the Green Party.

In its manifesto being launched in Dublin, the Green Party is proposing fundamental changes in energy generation, transport policy, industry, land use, taxation, planning and housing

No need to call a press conference. Their policies boil down to, if it moves and its outside Dublin tax it. Its that simple.



Whatever about Cork but a light rail in Galway is a woeful idea

And the ruination of rural Ireland, these people are extremists.

Absolute joke of a party! To claim that a motorway between Limerick and Cork is unnecessary just proves how seriously out of touch these people are with the reality of everyday voters!

🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 If he gets the gig the whole party will be on the telly.

😂😂😂😂

Who ?

Show us the full menu, we don't pay you to curate our political options.

How about you include NationalPartyIE RTÉ? We know it's because you're scared! When people hear real Nationalists who truly care about their country and its people speak, the public will wake up to the sense and logic, and you lose your stranglehold on their political views.

Gardaí do not believe children died of natural causes (14)

Gardaí do not believe at this stage that three young children whose bodies were found in Co Dublin died of natural causes.

The bodies were found in a house at Parson's Court in Newcastle village, northwest of Rathcoole, last night

Such a heart breaking tragedy

Murdered by the person they trusted the most and not to for get the poor Father

😓😓Heartbreaking. My thoughts are with all their family, friends and their whole community

3 children dead, Gardaí say they do not believe it was natural causes. So it was murder. Is anyone going to come out and say this or are we going to pretend it is not murder because the perpetrator might be a woman and might be related to the children?

So sad Newcastle community in awful shock , the poor father and relatives of the 3 kids. 😢
