Did yiz hear about the 15 year old who died at the wk end in Tallaght after being hit by a strike of lightening - here. Mad stuff. You don't think things like this happen anymore. He was probably heading out to the shop for a bag of crisps, possibly Tayto. At the end of the day I'd probably prefer to be struck by lightening than be struck by a hit and run, at least there's a bit of glamour and history to it, but it's still tragic all the same.
On a similar vein, I can't wait for Hillery's funeral. You can't beat a bit of pomp and hype. I watched all of Haughey's last time.
