    Thanks ACP and IMU for this compendium.

    On Vincent Brown’s TONIGHT: Nice to hear Vincent kicking off with his own little apology for his bias on Friday last.

    Nice, too, to see Breda and Patsy fighting it out again on “how we got to this pass”. They’re both right: we get the media and bishops we deserve, maybe.

    Fr Guiney (IMU President) and Senator John Whelan – both sound panelists.

    I fully agree with Brown and McGarry on the watchdog that hasn’t barked day or night since last May: the RTÉ Authority. I wonder what Terry Prone will have to say about that on PK’s round-up of the week on Friday morning.

    Good to see things falling into place with most of the right people being stepped aside, if not down. Relieved to see Tom Savage has got his Board together: some older heads can learn without rolling.
