    This will surely be the next COOL!

    Well actually, that was the question the OP posed.

    All the women in the Dail are mad for it and theres usually a catfight over who reads it first when its displayed in the library there.

    This deranged fantasist, in his own mind, operates and moves about in the Dail and empathises with the good guys of
    the Third Reich!!!

    "Bachelor Boy: Farmer with own holding, 40 acres arable land and some stock plus tillage, daily Communicant, would like to meet Catholic girl of rural background, must be strict TT and non-smoker...."

    The "TT" was of course Teetotaler (non-drinker). The "NT" was National Teacher....

    It is a snapshot in time--- an historical record of a totally different Ireland, but within my living memory...
    As any regular viewer of QI would know, Pope Benny's parents met through a personal ad.
    So rest assured all you TT daily Communicants, such fornication is Vatican-friendly !

    It had a circulation of 40,000 in 2007. That's about the same as the Cork Examiner. Is there an on-line version?


    For the first half of 2007, the magazine had an average circulation of 40,905, according to the Audited Bureau of Circulations.

    I used to see it in my grandparents house and when we were of a certain age, the scorn we heaped on it was something to behold.

    Fast forward a long time and I find my Dad is buying it and I'm again flicking through it but with a much kinder eye now. My mother always checks out the song lyrics and she can link most of them to friends and family who would have done them as party pieces, or where she might have been dancing when they were out etc

    My son and husband get the old copies and read Owens corner (the childrens pages) together. It probably won't be too long before my son will be too old and will heap scorn on it too.

    I can't see myself ever buying it but when I'm of a certain age who knows? It seems to have brought pleasure to many , many elderly people who aren't really catered for in mainstream magazine publications.

    Long may it continue I say.

    PS The lonely hearts section is still hilarious.
