Rock band the Foo Fighters have banned garden gnomes from their upcoming concert at Slane castle.
The announcement was made at a security briefing at Lord Henry Mount Charles' estate yesterday.
"It is true," Mount Charles said. "But I would like to state unequivocally that I have nothing against garden gnomes myself." Good to know.
Both the Iona Institute's David Quinn and John Waters have declined to attend Vincent Browne's Live from The George special this Saturday.
According to well-placed sources, while Quinn politely declined the offer, Waters was a little more forthright. Hardly surprising - given the lively reception the two might expect in a bastion of Dublin's gay community.
Lesser-known political activists Jedward are hoping the nation will vote Yes in the presidential referendum today.
"Nobody was talking about it, so we had to highlight the issue and get people talking," Edward Grimes explained. "It's like a super-big issue.
"Right now our main focus is music but we can easily set our minds to anything - we could make it into the Áras. It would be Jepic."
If that isn't enough of an incentive to get down to the polling stations, I don't know what is.
