As much as I despise the tone of the Irish Daily Mail you have to give them some credit for breaking down the cosy cartel in Irish media.. just read these puff pieces in the Irish Times & Indo followed by Broadsheet's snap of the Mail story and compare and contrast:
Denis O'Brien and chums organise a celebration of BOD.. no harm there.. but who do they invite, only Seanie Fitzpatrick.
‚€™A roomful of Paddies, a free bar and the future king of England. It‚€™s going to be messy‚€™ - Rugby News | Rugby Results, Fixtures & Tables | The Irish Times - Tue, Mar 19, 2013
Prince William makes special appearance at BOD
Meanwhile, At The Grosvenor House Hotel | Broadsheet.ie
The fact that the Indo uses the phrase "the Great and the Good" in respect of Seanie Fitz is too sad a reflection on our sick state.
