Clearly the people who engaged in this activity are aptly described as a ‘Thundering Disgrace’ to quote a former Fine Gael Minister. How dare they disrespect the elected leader of this country in this way, we are a better people than this type of behaviour represents. If they employed their time productively like the rest of us instead of behaving like lager louts it would be of greater benefit to the county
James you auditioning for a part as a comedian???? Your off to a flying start!
Funniest thing I’ve read all day James.
is that james as in jimmy harte?
Employed their time properly?
What is wrong with sending a clear message to a grossly incompetent Taoiseach? NOTHING!
You Sir have your head up your hole!
James you wouldn’t happen to be that villainous traitor Enda Kenny in disguise?
I’m presuming James you are trying to wind the people up right? You cannot put respect and leader of this country in the same sentence. What a waste of good eggs, hope the were past their sell by date and stank like the party he represents.
I agree James, no need for it. Making a show of themselves!
“How dare they disrespect the elected leader of this country….” Dare they should, and they’re dead right. The man is disrespectful every day of his life with his actions and comments. About time he got some of the same. We do not revere Enda Kenny. He is not God.
Ehh James, everyone has their own opinions and everyone’s intitled to their opinions, if people want to throw eggs at the taoiseach then you shouldn’t be giving out about them, yes it was a waste of eggs but it shows that the people of Milford didn’t vote for Enda to lead the country, he’s done nearly a bad job as Bertie Ahern. It’s not fair on the public of Ireland to not let their opinion across, even at the cost of his drycleaning … He doesn’t deserve the salary he’s getting, neither is the entire government, they were voted in to be the voice of the people and they got greedy instead. There would be no need for cut backs if they had a bit of common sense. So let the people throw eggs. They did nothing on you.
Oh darn… They forgot the yogurt.. Wake up people .. learn from the Greeks.. Mind you, it is a waste of eggs and yogurt.. The way the country is going I reckon that it maybe all you’ll have left if Enda/Merkel & Co have their wicked way… !!
firstly broken election promises now broken eggs has enda kenny no shame as well as no leadership
I guess you thought that was really witty Phillip.
A waste of good eggs i agree, but for James and Joe to suggest that Kenny, elected under false pretenses, deserve respect, you must be kidding us all. Not only have they broken every election promise, they are engaged in handing over the sovereignty of our nation as well as the keys to the safe. Eggs me arse, it should be grenades.
Why should anyone be surprised that the protesters contain elements that are very capable of egg throwing and worse?
Chaos is the name of their game.
I wish to make it very clear that the information reported in this article are incorrect. Donegal Action for Cancer Care were not part of any protest to An Taoiseach today in Milford or anywahere else today. This information is totally incorrect. We did protest today and would never ever if we had to protse do it at an event for children or young people. There needs to be a serious retraction & correction of this false statement and we take great offence at it. We pride ourselves on working within an Ethos Of Respect for evryone especially or sick people and their families. We are very upset at this news release. It is totally incorrect, we did NOT PROTEST!
Hope the eggs used were not fresh
haha serves him right, waste of good eggs though..
Throwing eggs at the Taoiseach is a stupid thing to do, we are today the laughing stock of Ireland. These people have been provoked and provoked by T.D’s such as Pearse Doherty and Pringle who want to keep the public anger high as that is how they were elected. If these protesters cant contain themselves they should stay at home
Good point, Michael. Next time, people, make sure the eggs are not fit for consumption.
James, Joe, wake up to what these politicians are doing to this country. If they get the green light to their plans, we will be suffering austerity for the next tens years, at least, without any means of democratically opposing it. Is this the action of leaders you respect? It certainly isn’t mine, or those of the vast majority, it would seem.
Fair play to the people of Muilford, Enda Kenny thinks that he is doing wonders for Ireland when in fact he has just continued the ways of Fiana Fail by selling us out to Europe. I agree though what a waste of good egge.
i can hardly stop laughing ..well done and about time Enda and co. were brought into the REAL world , rotten eggs and rotten tomatoes just what this crowd of corrupt crooks deserve .
as for the Fine Gael poster #1 ..time you woke up to the Real world aswell @ james .
Cant Pay Wont Pay !!
NO Confidence !!
If this is the level of obediance Can’t Pay won’t pay have then they are a disgrace to the many who have believed them so far, I see from another news agency that M Mac Giolla Easpuig was present wouldnt surprise me that this incident occured. If the strength of your argument is not enough then WE the Irish people have no time for it
“Obediance???” Why should we obey a leader who is guilty of Treason for trying to end self-determination in Ireland and bring about foreign rule? With YOUR attitude the Irih people wold still be obeying British rule, even though it was Unjust. Unjust rulers should never ever be obeyed!
I am a third year at Loreto and I was there today, and although people are entitled to there opinions, it just didn’t feel nice when we were surrounded by protestors.
Classical whoever threw eggs at his car , welldone ;o I wish use well in life
lucky it was only eggs thrown at him considering the levels of anger towards him and the other liars FG are in coalition with
Firstly, well done Shaun Sweeney for working so hard all last summer to win this great prize, and well done Intel et al for sponsoring it. It’s just a pity that Enda Kenny and his cohorts were invited at all! He did nothing yet just expects to show up and present the prize as though HE’s giving something to us. His PR stunt went wrong today!
Why are the people all complaining about the government and throwing eggs at them?
The people had their say last year in the election and voted Enda Kenny and Fine Gael into power.
These same people now think that a change of government will solve all their problems and that throwing eggs at people will help them.
These same people will be complaining next week when the treaty is passed with a YES vote and it will.
The government that they voted into power will stay in power until the C.O.D “Complainers of Donegal” get to have their vote again.
A change of government is NOT going to solve the debt crisis of Ireland and was proved when the people voted out Fianna Fáil and voted in Fine Gael and Labour.
You might not like what i just said but its the truth and fact so get over it.
Would love to know how throwing eggs is supposed to help the whole matter?
Maybe Sam, just maybe, the government and even joe, dinny, jimmy, frank etc might realise that the policies they are implementing are having serious repercussions for the people of this Island. I can understand the need to balance the books and the need for cut backs here and there, but people are being pushed to the pin of their collar, simple as.. So much so, well you see it here today.. He was confronted last week by an angry parent about to loose 2 children to distant shores.. Would i expect a real leader to take this on board, yes.. Would i expect Enda et al to take these incidents on board, No.. There is no fairness with cuts in society, a huge divide in living and social standards in fact, news today that over 10% of mortgages are in serious arrears, these policies of austerity just aren’t working.. Big NO needed..
Dont worry about the eggs! If the hens that laid those eggs knew what was going on in this country im sure they would say fair play! This country has gone down the drain! Ive worked for 2 and a half years and when my work place closed down I was left redundant! I cant get the dole or even my stamps that I have paid because im in college! This doesnt say much for th e young people of today trying to make something of themselves! Luckily I got another job! But if I wer to leave college I could get the dole or my stamps! So I say eggs is the least he deserves!
It’s a bloody disgrace throwing anything at Enda Kenny regardless of what politics you are. I’m no supporter of FG but whoever did that action should be named and shamed. There is a way of protesting like normal humans not hooligans. Yet again we bring unwanted media coverage to our County. “UP HERE ITS DIFFERENT” . Thats for sure. laughing stock again.
Right start talking sence mr kenny is the leader of our country throwing egg is a stupid thing to do this is why Can’t pay won’t Pay don’t get the the huge crowd out to protest I know a good few people who were going to their protest in letterkenny and when they saw who some of the leader were they turn on there heels and left
Lets get straight today meant to be about the huge achievment of a young man. And how that achievment benifited the school. And there you had campaigners throwing eggs at the Taoiseach, where has olitics gone. Say what you want about Fine Gael Labour or Fianna Fail they are able to argue there points shame on the rest.
I’m actually embarrassed – Such a positive event for these young students has been ruined by a few ignorant, immature and cowardly protesters – if you want to stand up and be heard, this is NOT the way to do it and you do not deserve any respect or recognition. I am truly shocked by the ignorance of some of the comments above.
i wonder will kenny be singing the hills of donegal tonight there wont be too many chicken ranches legalised from now on. and maybe are plight will get some publicity now some of the papers and radio stations are lacking to give us a fair crack of the whip no doubt they will be trying to criminalise us watch to you see this week
its a disgrace how enda kenny was treated today he came to congradulate the school not for eggs to be throwin at him have a bit of respect for him
As a supporter of the can’t pay won’t pay I am embarrassed at the childish tactics. This was an event recognition for great work our kids did. If your want to loose support on the can’t pay won’t pay they are going the right way about it.
I notice that only one comment hear actually mentioned the reason why Enda was in donegal, he came to reconise the students of LCS achievements and the whole day was taken over by a bunch of petty protestors, who maybe not all but some im quite sure some of whom actually voted for the current government. it was the students and teachers of the school that have been mostly affected by this protest, as im quite sure it wont help with Irelands cause
Doing this did take away from the schools achievement, and i bet half of the senseless protestors throwing the eggs voted for him . Crowd of ‘Cliffs’.
my name is leanne and i am AGAINST this :”’( i was having a marvoulous day until them desgraceful protesters ruinedd it ! :/ us at loreto give respect im 1 xxx
Can not believe people are getting upset over eggs being thrown at yet another greedy out of touch politician who has lost touch with the real world. All the problems that we have and this clem is out doing pr work to make himself look good. Mass immigration, complete failure to uphold any election promises including a disgraceful written declaration to the student union of ireland on no grant cuts or fee increases. Low and behold both are on the cards, these were blatant lies to the students of Ireland just to get there vote. Wake up people talk is cheap and tey promise the world but once they are in and getting their fat paycheques and pensions they do not care so these politicians deserve all the hassle they get.
Enda Kenny was here to get a yes vote, if he cares about the people should he not of met with Donegal Against Cancer, instead of handing out a cheque for a big business??
Does ne school need fancy computers? When other schools are being closed and losing teachers??
If people werent so quick to forget!
Absolute disgrace. The people that did this are nothing short of hypocrites. Where were these thugs when MCDaid and Coughlan were representing Donegal…..not a protest in sight. No doubt if some of their heros like Gerry Adams,Joe Higgins, or the great ‘lets have a protest showman’Boyd Barrett, were subjected to this kind of thuggery these same people would be shouting about democracy from the rooftops. I hope they were arrested and they throw the book at them, because the ordinary decent people of Donegal deserve better then this. To the idiots on here who sneer at those of us who dare to question their actions, you are no better then they are, dont you think its time for you to grow up. Pathetic.
Brianless thugs. Its a great pity the clowns responsible for this didnt spend more time inside this school or any school for that matter. Perhaps then they might have grasped the whole concept of democracy not to mention respect for others.Disgraceful behaviour. Given their own role in fanning the flames at every opportunity, I call on the likes of Joe Higgins, Adams and Boyd Barrett to come out and publicly state they do not advocate this type of violence. As public reps and in the interest of everyone it is no less then their duty to do so.
i’m sorry to see such a worthwhile campaign sinking to such low levels. i think it will lose alot of support because of these tactics.
