Thanks to Edmundo di Corci for this tribute to Ennio Morricone: I’m sure someone will do an excellent This Week I’ve Mostly Been Listening To on Ennio Morricone who died today aged 91. However in the meantime here’s the only pop song he ever wrote which I’m inordinately fond of. He got the idea for […]A

SonofStan brought up a thought last week about the present government, that perhaps Fianna Fáil in its current much reduced state might provide the mudguard to both Fine Gael and the Green Party.
