Léirmheas suimiúil ar shaol agus tréithe Frank Aiken

14 December 2006

Maraon leis an gclár a bhí ar siúl an tseachtain seo caite ar RTÉ faoin bhfaisísteach Eoin O'Duffy, craoladh clár faisneise beathaisnéise eile faoi dhuine stairiúil ó thréimhse Réabhlóid na hÉireann. Frank Aiken a bhí mar ábhar ar an gclár áirithe seo, duine ar réabhlóideach agus iar-óglach poblachtánach dó. Ba cheannfort é ar Roinn Thuaidh Óglaigh na hÉireann le linn Chogadh na nDúbhchrónach ó a chuaigh sé isteach mar bhall sna hÓglaigh úd ina chúigiú bliain déag. Le linn an Chogaidh Chathartha, theastaigh uaidh seasamh neodrach a ghlacadh agus rinne sé gach iarracht réiteach a mholadh idir an dá thaobh. Ach i ndeireadh thiar thall, chaith sé le haill leis na poblachtánaigh tar éis do na saorstátóirí praiseach a dhéanamh iarracht é a ghabháil. Tar éis bhás Liam Uí Loingsigh, tháinig Aiken i gceannas ar na hÓglaigh agus d'ordaigh sé dóibh sos comhraic a fhogairt agus armlón a chaith ar leataobh, sa chaoi nach raibh mórán i ndán don bhfeachtas míleata poblachtánach faoin tráth sin.

Is iontach na rudaí a fheictear agus tú ag fanacht ar eitleán - mná móra ramhra le cuirtíní thart orthu agus na fir chéile ag ithe sceallóg agus ag fanacht ar an 23.25 go dtí Los Angeles agus taom croí; agus colceathar Ronnie Corbett lena Mhamaí, a rinne na ceapairí dó, agus í ag brú an trálaí le dhá sheanmhála taistil brúite le chéile i gciorcal; scata déagóirí le spotaí orthu ag síneadh isteach a hataí tuí agus iad ar a mbealach go Fuengerola, na creátúir bhochta.

The Matt Treacy Column

14 December 2006

The last big game before Christmas was last Sunday's Munster club final between Kerry's Dr. Crokes of Killarney and The Nire from Waterford. It was truly a clash of the patricians and plebeians of the game but The Nire paid scant respect to livery or genealogy and were unfortunate not to have at least gotten a draw. As was magnanimously conceded by Crokes, and newly appointed Kerry, manager Pat O'Shea. Free article

Pity the poor Irish Times. Even though Charlie Haughey is dead and on what the Irish call 'slí na fírinne' (way of truth), the 'paper of record' can't let him rest in peace. Once again this week, Tara Street led with a hopeful report by Tribunal challenger Colm Keena to the effect that the Moriarty Tribunal is poised to condemn Haughey for a payment-for-passport deal, for arranging a meeting for Ben Dunne with the Revenue Commissioners and for not cooperating with the Tribunal.
