Calls for National Alzheimer’s Screening Programme after FF Storm Election
A body representing health professionals in the Republic of Ireand has called for the roll out of a national amnesia screening programme after the party responsible for the economic crash, Fianna Fáil, registered a record increase in support in last Friday’s general election.
According to exit polls Fianna Fáil’s support base is much older than other parties and doctors believe this may be behind the unexpected resurgence of the party that saw hundreds of thousands of people lose their jobs and leave the country.

“There’s such enthusiasm for Fianna Fáil after the general election that we think we should go for an entire village of tents this time”, said Billy Brown-Envelope a party activist, “our supporters have such short memories that they’ll forget they’ve donated in one tent and trump up again in the other tent. There’s a lot of democracy to be sold over the next five years.”
With the rise of ISIS, the imminent election of Donald Trump to the White House and Fianna Fáil back in power in Ireland many believe we have now entered the post-intellectual era which commentators on Leeside are dubbing “The Age of the Langer” – when there are more complete langers in power around the world than normals.
It has been rumoured for years that Bob Marley lived in Cork...and possibly still does. Only that can explain the manic devotion to the reggae superstar on Leeside...
This time last year Cork were Munster champions going into the All-Ireland semi-final on a high. It didn't end well. The Rebels have added some steel that should help avoid another semi drubbing but is it enough to beat a tough Limerick outfit?
It's time to hand the event centre tender over to the Peeple'a'Cork. Just give us 100 Saturdays and we'll knock it together. Anyone have a spare trowel?
