Saturday Survey

Heroes of the Week: Gardai: Great to see that a boy with leukaemia had his wish come true thanks to the gardai. Fair play to them.

Villains of the Week: Colombian government: They are determined to have the Colombia Three extradited and have said they will pursue the extradition "to the last day of the last possible appeal". Appeal all you want! The three men are going nowhere!

Funniest Moment of the Week: Fat fury: Read this story. Hilarious stuff!

Dunces of the Week: Loyalist 'footsoldiers': They attacked a rival businessman and told him to get off their turf. The trouble is, the man they attacked was an undercover policeman. Ah well, it's all part and parcel of the ice-cream business apparently...

Luckiest person (s) of the Week: Tyrone football team: They're lucky that the current Dublin team is muck.

My favourite moment of the week: Aoibhinn's win: Seeing Mayo Rose Aoibhinn Ní Shúilleabháin win the Rose of Tralee was great, especially since she was my tip to win! Good job Aoibhinn!

Quote of the Week: "Loyalist paramilitaries claim to exist because of the republican threat against their community but the reality is that people in the loyalist community are living in fear not from their traditional enemy but from people within their own community" - The DUP's Edwin Poots

How refreshing to hear a unionist politician condemning the Loyalist violence!
