    Default Jobs for the boys

    Nice to see Bill O'Herlihy being gainfully employed again at the age of 74. What exactly are his qualifications for this job?

    O

    It seems that people no longer retire from RTE. Look at Byrne, Murphy, and now O'Herlihy. It really is a job for life

    I presume this position was advertised and it was an open competition. I'm sure Bill got it on merit, it would have nothing to do with his connections to FG.

    Shouldn't 74 year old Bill, and Fine("We will end Cronyism") Gael be highly embarrassed by this appointment?

    Feel quite satisfied to have never funded this gravy train by paying for a TV licence ever in my life. I can see who the spongers are.
