Joe Duffy's Liveline


Oh look who logs in to follow me around again.


Share the same deodorant (whole 25,000of them)


That’s funny, you’re the one following me on this thread



Good piece on Joe about time zones and clocks going backward and forward. Villages in Ireland not so long ago (mainly the West) seemed to unilaterally set their own time to suit themselves sometimes by a half an hour difference to the “official” time. Never heard of it before.


Didnt hear that section… who was the fella that owed all the contractors money on the earlier section?


Not sure. Missed earlier piece and just have it on now. Lad on now started out chirpy and by the end of it mentioned his depression.




Cork and Kerry used to be an hour time difference according to this caller now who went to school in a different time zone. The Archbishop seemed to decide the time zone.


That was @Fagan_ODowd on from Waterford. You’ve a lovely way about you @Fagan_ODowd.


I think the limerick Soviet had its own time zone too.


Lady from Greystones says all year summer time would be “catastrophic”.

This is great radio.


The clock on my car is still on summer time. Not worth my while changing it now


Still going on in Kerry :slight_smile:


Glin in West Limerick supposedly had it’s own time zone. It was half an hour behind AFAIK. You’d sometimes hear an auld West Limerick stock joke when someone was late, “are you on Glin time?”.

Anyone who’s ever been to Glin will not be suprised by this. It’s about twenty years behind at the best of times, so what’s a half an hour I suppose.
