Here are the inaugural That’s Ireland Father Jack Awards for the Best Parliamentary Use of the Words Feck, Arse and Gobshite. >>>

Feck

David Norris, Independent Senator, in July 1992 on the Family Planning Bill:

Why are we fecking around in this pettifogging way?

Arse

Emmet Stagg, labour TD, in June 1988 on the Financial Estimates:

There was an old saying in my part of the country that there was no need to rub the fat pig’s arse in lard. Effectively the Common Agricultural Policy did that.

Gobshite

Brendan McGahon, Fine Gael TD, in February 1997 on the Peace Process:

What we were offered was a mirage, a phony peace, which attracted many gobshites.
