Crib for March  14TH

Tonight's Programme by Kate


Father Connolly was worried about the backstop.  He gave a speech, paying a

Tribute to the Borders.  He was invited to the

City of Belfast to discuss the problem with

Maureen and Paddy.  Meanwhile

The Irish Rover was wondering if his roving days were over . Would need a visa to  visit his

Floozie in the Jaccuzzi on the Continent? He had bought her an emerald engagement ring.  The

Green and Gold looked stunning together.
