A couple of months back, they were sad because they'd been booted out of Fine Gael because they couldn't be doing with abhortion, holy mary mother of god and all that.
Last night, in the wake of the defeat of Enda Kenny's proposal to abolish the Seanad, they were ecstatic.
This blog has been informed that the group gathered for a wild celebration in the crypt of a tridentine church somewhere in Peter Matthew's Dublin South constituency. The D.J. for the evening was their pal Cora Sherlock of the Pro-Life campaign, who played a range of her favourite nineties sounds. Cora Sherlock is the new nice girl of the ultra-right in Ireland. My sources tell me she spent her college years giving hope to fellas from Killybegs who really had no hope. But sure so it goes.
Rock The Boat. Ah, The Hues Corporation, we shall not see their likes again. At one point, during the group's raucous rocking of the aforementioned boat, Peter Matthews became separated from his rosary beads.
However, the night ended well when Cora Sherlock led the group in a seance during which they tried to contact the spirit of Fine Gael's first leader, Eoin O'Duffy.
Eoin O'Duffy told the group that his spirit is with them, one thousand per cent of the way, and that if he weren't dead he'd be a Reform Alliance member of the Seanad. At which point, it's rumoured, actual tears were shed. I dedicate my poem, What The Virgin At Knock Would Say If She Could Speak, to this admirable group of expunged ex-Fine Gaelers.
