The Tale of Michael Malloy

Sam O’Nella Academy tells the story of the most resilient drunk to ever grace a bar.

Irish Flash Mob

Awesome Irish dancing flash mob including members of Riverdance and over 100 schoolchildren spreading St. Patrick’s Day cheer in spectacular Central Station Sydney.

 

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone!

Michael D. Higgins (who was elected president of Ireland last year) is fed up with over-the-top Tea Party rhetoric, and he isn’t afraid to show it. Listen to him call out radio host Michael Graham on everything from health care to foreign policy in this heated exchange from 2010. Trust me, you don’t want to miss this one.

“Be a decent American, rather than just a wanker whipping up fear!”

Irish Joke

An Irish priest was transferred to Texas.

 

Father O'Malley rose from his bed one morning. It was a fine spring day in his new Texas mission parish. He walked to the window of his bedroom to get a deep breath of the beautiful day outside. He then noticed there was a jackass lying dead in the middle of his front lawn.

 

He promptly called the local police station……

 

The conversation went like this:

"Good morning. This is Sergeant Jones. How might I help you?"

 

"And the best of the day te yerself. This is Father O'Malley at St. Ann 's Catholic Church. There's a jackass lying dead in me front lawn and would ye be so kind as to send a couple o'yer lads to take care of the matter?"

 

Sergeant Jones, considering himself to be quite a wit, replied with a smirk, "Well now Father, it was always my impression that you people took care of the last rites!"

 

There was dead silence on the line for a long moment…….

Father O'Malley then replied: "Aye, 'tis certainly true; but we are also obliged to notify the next of kin."
