September 3, 2007 at 12:01 am 2 comments

On this week last year (September 3 to September 9, 2006):

  • It was revealed that something very strange had happened, after a post-mortem in Beaumont hospital, to the body of a British tourist who died while on holiday in Ireland. What was it?
  • After the Electric Picnic festival at Stradbally, County Laois, what did more than half of the people leave behind?
  • What celebrity had to to wear netting to protect himself from midges during a three-month stay at Luggala Castle, County Wicklow?
  • After three months of a new by-law that banned dogs being walked on beaches, how many fines had Clare County Council imposed for flouting the ban?
  • A survey showed that Irish people queue for how long on average each day?

  • During a second post-mortem in Britain, an additional heart and pair of lungs were found inside his body.
  • Their tents. The concert organisers were arranging to give the thousands of abandoned tents to charity.
  • Michael Jackson.
  • None.
  • We each queue for seventeen minutes a day. We get impatient after eleven minutes of queuing, and angry after half an hour of queuing.

    If you’re freaked out by that, run for your life before you read any more. Ireland is, usually unintentionally, the most entertaining country in the world.
