Feb 2011

As we plough through the most boring election in Irish history, 'cutbacks' following is growing, with increased viewing numbers, subscriptions and comments. Thanks to all supporters for your enthusiasm and encouragement! New 'cutnacks' characters include Michael Noonan, Eamonn Gilmore and Vincent Browne.

We're doing what we can to push 'cutbacks' towards film and TV, with some expressions of interest from IFB, RTE, TV3 and DCTV. It's going to take time, even if DT Finn wants it to happen immediately!
