According to Ireland On-Line's breaking news section, SIPTU members at Shannon Airport have voted to take strike action on St. Patrick's Day. Though it is over the voluntary redundancies of some 100 baggage-handlers, rather than America's war crimes, the move must be welcomed! read full story / add a comment

Owen finally got a chance to make arguments against the bail conditions imposed on him. The judge had previously denied Owen the chance to make arguments. Owen (who hadn't eaten for over 2 weeks, stood for 70 minutes and totally out-manouvered the state, including giving a serious 16 minute grilling to Inspector Tom Kennedy . Read on. -skip the background if you already know it. The words don't do justice to the flair and concentration of Mr. Rice, nor the flustered squirming of Inspector Kennedy and the pained expressions of the judge.
Owen will be in Cloverhill Court on Monday morning to apply for the original bail conditions to be restored, and the new ones quashed. read full story / add a comment

There's a cranky old Judge called Joe Mangan
Who would love the return of the hangman
He's a cranky old bollix
and an old alcholic
He'll have to make do with a Clare-ban

Now some folk might think it unfair
To be banned from the County of Clare
But this rude little sod,
In his court, thinks he's God
So be careful, my friends what you wear

You'd better not voice an opinion
While sitting in Mangan's dominion
And speak not of Hussein
for it drives him insane
You'll be set upon by Garda minions

Just to prove he's an absolute spanner
he will confiscate anti-war banners
then he'll bellow and roar
and he'll show you the door
and complain about YOUR lack of manners!
