O'Leary makes waves in the Dáil, and Charles dognaps a Corgi...

Many people thought that 2016 was about as crazy as things could get, but as Ian O'Doherty gazes into his crystal ball, he sees a lot of very frightening events headed our way

So, um, we nearly done yet?

You have to admit, 2016 has been one hell of a year. Any performer over the age of 50 must be nervously looking over their shoulder, wondering if they will be the next celebrity to be the last item on the news. We now have the distinction of being in an increasingly small club of European countries who haven't been hit by a terror attack. The people of the United Kingdom voted to Leave the EU and regain control over their own destiny. Folks in America did the same thing. Trump wasn't so much elected as Hillary was rejected, in a result that even the smartest pundits - and my good self - didn't see coming.

Yup, a hell of a year.
