800 years of oppression. The Famine. Louis Walsh. The 8th Amendment. 50 years of The Late Late Show. Linda Martin. The Catholic Church. So. Much. Mort. And now we have to deal with Ed Sheeran’s, ‘Galway Girl.’ ‘Galway Girl’ is a subtle terrorist attack on Ireland that will slowly wipe us all out from scarlet fever, leaving only those immune to scarlet, alive. This short list … Continue reading Galway Girl – A Scarlet Unpacking
There are two types of scarlet that I study. The bad: “We’re all FUUUUUUUCKED” kind, like realising ‘The Handmaids Tale’ is real and Matt Damon is the best we are gonna get, and the good: “Ah! The HACK of that” kind that is so utterly mortifying and glorious (see Fyre Fest or Brad Pitt’s GQ Interview) that it breathes new mort into you and makes you … Continue reading 2017- A Scarlet Lookback

The fact that repealing the 8th amendment is taking soooooo long is not surprising. As history has proven Ireland has always been a right little prick to women. Here’s a timeline of all the scarlet Ireland has made women endure. I’d set your mind to RAAAAAAGE, right about now. 17th&18th century: The Magdalene Laundries opened. Where in fact, not a lot of laundry was done. They specialized … Continue reading Repeal The Scarlet – Repeal The 8th!
We would like to take this time to tell a few people, to….well…..TO FUCKING PISS OFF. We were gonna make a video, of us walking through a park, all Verve like, banging off people, while a really cool beat plays in the background and we read this all slam poetry like and moody as fuck. Except we can’t be arsed, so, like, just picture all … Continue reading Piss Off…..

Taylor Swift made a sneaky comeback to the scarlet games, and Louis CK came out of nowhere and waved his scarlet torch around, but it was reigning World Champion of Scarlet, Daithi O Se, who went home with the gold again. Here is your recap of all the scarlet happenings from this very morto week: … Continue reading Scarlet Recap – Taylor Swift, Rose of Tralee, Louis Ck and Katy Perry

From a slight toe curl cringe at the sight of a Kardashian, to a full on scarleptic fit when you get a flashback to this photo of Enda Kenny being caught rapid on his way for a bag of cans with d … Continue reading Scarlet For The 8th – A Global March For Choice
If someone had told me a few years ago that Enda Kenny’s likely successor would be the son of an Indian immigrant who was also a young, openly gay doctor I would have fucking jumped for joy. I would have thrown the scarlet shackles off me, screaming, “DOOOOOON’T STOP…. BELIEVING! HOLD ONTO THAT FEEEEEEEEELING!” But that person ended up being Leo Varadkar, so I ran back into the scarlet bunker … Continue reading Leo Varadkar – A Scarlet Investigation
The rumours of Enda Kenny’s imminent departure are proving to be true after his LinkedIn profile was found online. In another classic fuck up by Enda, he prematurely updated said profile before he had officially stepped down as our scarlet leader. In the shocking discovery, which LinkedIn have called their most “scarlet profile by far,” Enda states that he is currently on the dole and seeking disability allowance due to whiplash … Continue reading BREAKING SCARLET: Enda Kenny’s LinkedIn Profile Discovered Online
