Eoin Butler: writer, journalist and Mayoman of the Year

Tripping Along The Ledge


And I’m outtahere…

Right, I’m off. We need some time apart. It’s not you, it’s me. Actually, I’ve been persuaded to do some real work for a change, so I’ll have to take a few days off from here. Needless to say, I’m motivated and relishing the challenge. But first, some tea and biscuits are in order…

    I’d like to take this opportunity to start a rumour that he’s working on a novel.

  2. Lisa Says:

    I heard it was an interpretive dance.

    I heard it was an interpretive centre.

    Well, it’s a bit early to be saving hay…

    The Mystery of the Missing Breakfast Roll 🙂

    or a slaphead journalist who commits crimes in his spare time

    Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?

  8. Neal Says:

    Eoinser was a dab hand at interpretative dance at one point. He had a great routine illustrating the careers of Al Pacino and Robert De Niro…

  9. Colin Says:

    Willing to pay good money for a 5 minute video of those Al Pacino and Robert De Niro routines.

    Also see the DUP gave Ian Paisley jnr the nod to take up the torch in North Antrim for his Dad. No real surprise.

  10. Conal Says:

    Yes, as I recall it was very similar to his seed-growing-into-a-tree interpretative dance routine… 🙂

  11. Tony Says:

    You’re wasted on the internet Eoin. Wasted.

  12. Lisa Says:

    Rumour has it the interpretive dance is to be performed on Grafton Street tomorrow at 9pm. Commentators have described it as “the unlikely lovechild of Allen Ginsberg’s Howl and the later music of Fleetwood Mac”.

  13. Eoin Says:

    I think the greatest triumph of my brief foray into interpretive dance was that none of you ever noticed my ‘Career of Robert De Niro’, ‘Career of Al Pacino’ and ‘Seed Growing into a Tree’ were all the exact same routine.

  14. Eoin Says:

    Oh and Tony, I am wasted on the internet. Frequently.

  15. fiona Says:

    Have you finish that novel yet Eoin?

  16. Dolly Says:

    Good luck to him whatever hes’ doing that Paisley crotch-shot should keep us going for a few days anyway. ..

  17. daniel Says:

    Jesus thats a harsh image at this hour of the morning. His man boobs are actually drooping down over his waistline. Best luck with the book Eoin!

    And I thought old people wearing pants that go up to their armpits was just a cliche.

    Conan O’Brien’s American Tour now official – http://www.teamcoco.com

    Now to spam him for an Irish visit. And Boston doesn’t count.

  20. Denise Says:

    Maybe this is what Eoin is doing. hes helping Conan write his stage how. If he lets you open for him Eoin – do the Facebook friend from Gaza joke. It kills!

  21. massey Says:

    @ fiona – he just has to decide now whodunnit. My money would be on the Butler but id say he wants to keep himself around for the sequal!

  22. David Says:

    Anything less than news that Eoin is writing/performing on this Conan tour and I will be VERY disappointed.

  23. Eoin Says:

    Haha… Rumbled. Yes, I approached Conan O’Brien – SNL alumnus, writer of the Simpsons Monorail episode and 17 year veteran of Late Night – and said, let me teach you a little something about comedy…

  24. Darragh Says:

    It’s a novel. Lake Mayoebegon days. A wry yet massively sentimental account of life in Ballyhaunis before the English telly channels.

  25. damien Says:

    Did we ever find out if there really was a book? If there I’d I want to read it.
