RTÉ's 1916 tribute like a Eurovision intermission
I've heard it all now...
If you want a longer examination of RTÉ's coverage of the Rising, I suggest you turn to John Boland a bit further down the pages. But I, for one, have remained in a state of bafflement about the rapturous praise that was showered upon in it.
I don't know what it takes for most people to feel proud of being Irish, but I have set my bar slightly higher than Colm Wilkinson singing a U2 cover. I know, I'm a monster.
