    Mehaul would probably want to gagg himself as well. In case he also found to be talking out both sides of his mouth.....

One of Tubridy's maternal ancestors was revealed on Who Do You Think You Are? to be King Edward III of England, at odds with the Republican background of his family.

    Tubridy was educated at Blackrock College and University College Dublin (UCD), where he studied for his Bachelor of Arts. He was a member of the Kevin Barry Cumann of Fianna Fáil while in UCD and was active in the UCD Students' Union and Belfield FM, as well as the Dún Laoghaire branch of Ógra Fianna Fáil. His brother Garret ran unsuccessfully in the 2009 local elections for Dublin City Council. During the election campaign Ryan was advised not to make public appearances with his brother. Two of his first cousins, Barry Andrews and Chris Andrews, were formerly Fianna Fáil TDs, with the former being a Minister of State for Children in the coalition government of Brian Cowen. His grandfather, Todd Andrews, was a prominent associate of Fianna Fáil founder Éamon de Valera and held a number of posts in semi-state companies. On the Tubridy side of the family, Ryan is the grandson of TD Seán Tubridy.

    So What Mr O'Cuiv?

    ~Solicitied Contributors to Print, Radio and Television programmes are always paid. You hardly expect them to write or broadcast for nothing.
    And the reported fees paid by Drivetime are not excessive by any means.
    What is his point or is he trying to reach the populist mass public outrage.
    Why doesn't he offer himself for an interview on the show and outline why he raises the issue of payments to contributors.
    And he was born in the liberal heart of the country - Dublin 4.

    Fair points all.

    I think Olivia O'Leary is worth more than she gets.

    But the problem is that her liberal viewpoint is not balanced by someone of an opposing view like Breda O'Brien.

    They did let Michael Kelly of the Irish Catholic do a few columns.

    But Olivia has done her column for years.

    Joe O'Connor is also on the liberal end of the spectrum.

    Until that is corrected by having at least a few years of bias teh other way - followed then by an even approach - these payments remain unacceptable on grounds on political imbalance rather than value for money.

I'd be interested to know what the going rate on competitor shows is and it's hard to know without that information. A lack of information won't stop people howling in outrage though.
    So what do you think of EOC re this stand he's suddenly taking?
    Are you not even a bit curious why he didn't take this stand while in power?
    Do you actually believe he is saying something he believes ? Rather than just coming out with some populist ************************e that he'll forget, as soon as , or if he ever gets back into power?

    This above is a prime example of life in Ireland. Have a look at any State organisation and you can make connections. Nepotism is how Ireland is run and why this State is so flawed.
