Back Seat Driver Jon Ihle has a piece up in tomorrow's today's Irish Times, which can also be found online here. We won't take the bread from the mouths of Mr. Ihle's children (if he has any) by reproducing the article here; but we'll just say, priceless.

[1] and the photos! A more distinguished and sophisticated bunch of people we've not seen outside of a Camille O'Sullivan gig; though can someone please introduce the guy on the right to a pair of scissors?

[2] 'Team Fústar' went along too.

About me

  • An early-thirties male Irish technologist living and working in Dublin, I'm a former (recovering) member of both Fianna Fáil and the Roman Catholic Church.

    I'm not a member of any political party these days, but my opinions can be broadly categorised as 'lefty' and republican. I am also a former member of the Irish Defence Forces.

    Please feel free to check out the FI Fie Foe Fum group blog, where I was once a regular contributor, and the Cedar Lounge Revolution, where I can usually be found in the comments.
