More Overheard in Dublin: another 500 quotes from the ever popular website... Taxi driver complaining about Taniste Mary Coughlan: 'I didn't like her when she sung either!' ___________ I was on the Luas last August, and was standing next to these two Cork guys. Guy #1: 'Did you hear that some celebrity was stabbed yesterday?' Guy #2: 'What? Who? What happened?' Guy #1: 'Well, they were out with your woman Reese ... Reese ... Reese ... Whatsername?' Guy #2: 'Witherspoon?' Guy #1: 'With a spoon? No, with a knife! You can't stab someone with a spoon!' _____________ I was flying back from London recently, when we landed the steward makes the usual landing announcement over the intercom and finishes with: 'If you've enjoyed your flight with us, please tell your friends, if not, tell them you flew with another airline.' _____________ Sitting in an antenatal class and the midwife starts explaining about when the baby is born. She is going through how your partner is asked to cut the cord and a youngish Dublin girl interrupts her. She asks if this is when you can ask for an 'inny' or an 'outty' belly button. Needless to say the midwife has to check that the girl is being serious. All of us other women have to try not to look at each other and hold in our giggles as the girl defends herself saying she thought you could choose!

Imagining Irish Suburbia In Literature And Culture

Author : Eoghan Smith

This collection of critical essays explores the literary and visual cultures of modern Irish suburbia, and the historical, social and aesthetic contexts in which these cultures have emerged. The lived experience and the artistic representation of Irish suburbia have received relatively little scholarly consideration and this multidisciplinary volume redresses this critical deficit. It significantly advances the nascent socio-historical field of Irish suburban studies, while simultaneously disclosing and establishing a history of suburban Irish literary and visual culture. The essays also challenge conventional conceptions of what constitutes the proper domain of Irish writing and art and reveal that, though Irish suburban experience is often conceived of pejoratively by writers and artists, there are also many who register and valorise the imaginative possibilities of Irish suburbia and the meanings of its social and cultural life.

Discourse Analysis beyond the Speech Event introduces a new approach to discourse analysis. In this innovative work, Wortham and Reyes argue that discourse analysts should look beyond fixed speech events and consider the development of discourses over time. Drawing on theories and methods from linguistic anthropology and related fields, this book is the first to present a systematic methodological approach to conducting discourse analysis of linked events, allowing researchers to understand not only individual events but also the patterns that emerge across them. Discourse Analysis beyond the Speech Event Provides a method for detailed examination of speech, writing and other communication Introduces students and researchers to the discourse analytic tools and techniques required to analyse the relationships between discourse events Offers explicit guidelines that direct the reader through different stages of discourse analytic research, including worked examples from conversation, magazines and social media Incorporates sample analyses from ethnographic, archival and new media data. This book is essential reading for advanced students and researchers working in the area of discourse analysis.

Why Are Women More Religious Than Men

Women are more religious than men in almost every society and religious tradition (both old and new). They are also more likely to pray, to worship, to believe in the afterlife, and to consult mediums, fortune-tellers, and horoscopes. This book presents comprehensive evidence for this gender gap in religiosity, discusses the competing explanations put forward by scholars and offers its own answer to the question: 'why are women more religious than men'? The keyargument is that as women's lives become less restricted by patriarchy and traditional religious norms, the gender gap is likely to decrease, or disappear altogether.

I think everyone at times wishes they could be a child again and just play games like hide and seek. Not having to worry about what is going on with the world and what tomorrow will bring. I doubt what we were thinking about as children is the same as a boy named Devan. This story is about an incredible boy that is trying to understand the world around him and the changes within his world. Sometimes change can be good, but then again change can be a bad thing. -D.
