Great find guys. What memories - Ballymagash council; Eamon Morrissey as the Minister for Hardship, at the time of a faltering coalition government, with his Dickensian gloves (only the tops of the fingers showing) and two small candles for light;the careful enunciation of Shiite; Frank Kelly's skits before he started his solos using phone calls..."How ya....Whaaat..."; the roundup of the provincial papers, local politics and local politicians - there were notables from Castlebar; and John Bruton's tax on children's shoes - never to be lived down and milked unmercifully.
