The news with... Ernest Dorian St John Slowey

Here with his slant on the week’s news is Spud’s younger, university-educated sibling Ernest Dorian St John Slowey (originally christened Tom by his family).

Ernest informs us of David Brady’s contentious proposal that Longford and Leitrim merge for Gealic football purposes, offers his spin on the boundary changes, tells us of the nest of birds that have stopped NAMA in their tracks, alerts us to the fact that he will under no circumstances make jokes about Ulster Bank, and takes us down memeory lane with a quite extraordinary story from 1932.
