I was getting married to a young and Irish Bill Hader on the beach. He went in the water, got hit by a boat, and died. I was mourning my husband but still had to go to English class on Zoom and do my presentation. I cried.
My favourite thing about Ireland and the Eurovision is that we either have Rock and Roll Kids as our main act and fucking Riverdance as our half-time performance in the same year, rendering everyone else’s acts (and all other half-time performances for the rest of time) completely redundant OR we send a singing turkey to take the piss out of everyone and there’s absolutely no inbetween.
In the past week, Mullingar’s youngest and most famous modern musical son, superstar Niall Horan, has shown his appreciation of the great work being done.
With the help of his mum, Niall arranged to donate €15,000 towards the Meals on Wheels service, and this funding will help the Meals on Wheels people to improve further their kitchen and preparation areas in Mullingar, catering for large numbers of people.
