The first journalist provides great amusement or even irritation with their ignorance in the geography of Ireland.
From RTÉ NEWS Wednesday 24 December 2014 21.33
“An investigation by the Air Accident Investigation Unit is underway after a small plane crash landed in a field east of Portumna, County Galway.
The four-seat plane was en route to Galway from the UK when the pilot was forced to make an emergency landing in a field outside BorrisoKane, County Tipperary.”
Portumna is small town on the banks of the River Shannon providing a watery division between the west and the midlands of Ireland so any field to the east of Portumna has to be in a neighbouring county and it is not clear as to why Portumna needed to be mentioned in the article.
And from The Irish Times Wed, Dec 24, 2014
Journalist Genevieve Carbery who has masters degrees in both equality studies and journalism writes :-
“In what has almost become a Christmas Eve tradition, singer Glen Hansard led **a rabble** of musicians in song to a crowd of hundreds on Dublin’s Grafton Street” busking for The Simon Community among who were Damien Rice, Mundy, Paddy Casey, Liam O’Maonlai, Declan O’Rourke, Danny O’Reilly from the Coronas and Danny O’Donoghue from the Script
RABBLE: meaning people, who are regarded as socially inferior or uncouth, the use of this word is completely out of place and untrue.
