    Monday madness

    Pól Ó Muirí

    The Irish-language community was horrified to learn that someone actually read a book in Irish of his own free will. The man – Póló Muddy – has been described by friends as “a bit of a sad bastard” who takes masochistic pleasure from reading contemporary Irish-language novels “for fun”. When confronted by this allegation by a journalist from Nuacht TG4, Muddy admitted the offence and said he was a serial reader of Irish-language novels: “I just can’t help myself. I love a good book. Novelists go to a lot of bother writing these things and I think the least we can do to support them is actually reading the stuff.” An Garda Síochána have been informed about Muddy’s vice and an arrest seems very likely.

      Never knew there was such a thing as contemporary Irish-language novels. Much less that any such would be read ”for fun”. Recall when I got a copy of ‘Peig’ in English I very much enjoyed it. How would An Garda Siochana KNOW that you were reading an Irish novel sure none of them speak a focail.
