Thurles Man Badly Affected By Yesterday’s Wind Turbulence

Shortly after the Ryanair flight had reached its correct cruising altitude, during yesterday’s extremely high winds, the Flight Captain’s voice came calmly over the plane’s intercom system.

Plane blown over by hurricane winds in Shannon yesterday

“Ladies and Gentlemen, this is your Captain speaking. Welcome aboard Ryanair Flight 101, non-stop from Shannon to New York.
The weather ahead will be somewhat turbulent over the next hour or so, but very soon we can expect to encounter a smoother and more uneventful flight. So do sit back, relax, and………OH… MY GOD!”

A short silence followed as lives flashed in front of the eyes of all seated passengers.

Some moments later, the captain came back on the intercom system announcing; “Ladies and Gentlemen, I must sincerely apologise if I scared you in any way. While I was talking to you, due to the present turbulence being experienced, a flight attendant accidentally spilled burning hot coffee into my lap. You should see the front of my pants at this moment in time!”

From the back of the plane, one Thurles passenger yelled out, “For the luvva sweet Jaysus Sir …… you should see the back of mine.”

    Just the laugh I needed after a very hectic day. How many times have I been told “You Irish are so funny”

    A Love Story

    A wife, being the romantic sort, sent her husband a text:
    “If you are sleeping, send me your dreams.
    If you are laughing, send me your smile.
    If you are eating, send me a bite.
    If you are drinking send me a sip.
    If you are crying, send me your tears. I love you!

    The husband, typically non-romantic, replied,
    “I am on the toilet. Please advise.”
