5 THINGS LEARNED THIS WEEK

Bray People - - COMMENT -

A new sur­vey by Lit­tle­woods.com shows six per cent of men in North­ern Ire­land go three days with­out chang­ing their un­der­pants. What­ever will they sur­vey next?

RTE will be re­port­edly launch­ing a ma­jor re­view into the pro­duc­tion blun­ders at this year’s IF­TAs.

Ac­tor Mickey Rooney dies at the age of 93. I re­mem- ber the first time I saw Rooney in a film, the 1938 clas­sic Boys Town (it was a re­run on TV some years later) and I thought he was just fan­tas­tic.

On a rare visit to the cap­i­tal at the weekend, I learned that bus driv­ers don’t ac­cept fivers. The nice bus driver told me to take note for fu­ture ref­er­ence and then gave me a free spin into the city cen­tre. I tip my hat to him.

Granny Au­pair is the lat­est craze to hit Ire­land for fam­i­lies who would pre­fer an ‘ex­pe­ri­enced’ hand with their chil­dren. And the Ger­man busi­ness is look­ing for re­cruits – proof, you see, that you can’t beat an Ir­ish granny.
