The Minister for Education had to field some questions in the Dáil last Thursday about the slow progress of talks to regularise the terms and conditions of school secretaries and caretakers, as per the Government's commitments to do so. You can see how that discussion went here.
Sitting out in the balmy air on Saturday night I could hear the distant sound of Donna Summer classicI Feel Love. Somebody, somewhere was having a really good time, as I could hear a chorus of women joining in with Summer and Giorgio Moroder's sizzling floor-filler. And then I remembered Bronski Beat's 1984 cover version with Marc Almond, which distinguishes itself with a brilliantly transgressive twinkle in its eye. One for the midsummer revels, wherever you may find them and which ever version you fancy.
