Marty and the 'cool' Irish

I'm finding it extremely difficult to put into words the frustration and agitation I felt having to listen to Marty Whelan's Eurovison commentary. It seems that whilst he was a student at the Terry Wogan School of Eurovision Broadcasting, he scraped by with a complimentary pass, probably only attending the odd lecture.

It seems that whilst he was a student at the Terry Wogan School of Eurovision Broadcasting, he scraped by with a complimentary pass, probably only attending the odd lecture. He was definitely missing the day they discussed spontaneous wit, the omission of sarcastic or condescending remarks and how to acquire a modesty not to laugh at one's own jokes.
