Like Colin Farrell I grew up in Castleknock, I have never been able to reconcil the accent he seems to have. Gift Grub covered this ground years ago
This is a bit old now, but back May 29 2008 Jim Corr of The Corrs went on the Irish radio show “The Last Word” presented by Matt Cooper. He was brought in because he was against the Lisbon Treaty (Ireland’s first attempt at the vote). When asked why Jim goes into a long discussion about how he feels the treaty is a stepping stone to a new world order. Every one from the Illuminati to September 11th conspiracy theory’s get a look in. It is definitely worth a listen, my favorite line is that he has got a lot of time on his hands now:
I’m a big fan of Gift Grub which is a comedy segment on the Ian Dempsey radio show. It usually takes some thing weird going on in Ireland and poking a few funny holes in it. I particularly like how fast they can turn around content. This was put out within a day or so.
I actually heard the Gift Grub skit first and was amazed to find out that the original interview was even more bizarre than the Skit. Sadly the original Gift Grub mp3s are no longer available on the podcasts. So I have uploaded this and another one, where Jim releases a new album, so allow them to live on. Please check out the website for the new content, it’s brilliant!
As an addendum, in Ireland when you vote for something and the people say No, we keep voting until we get it right, the Lisbon Treaty, like the Nice Treaty, was passed on a second vote.
