    The Dead of 2021

    Irish Soprano Cara O'Sullivan dies aged 59 of dementia related disease. Quite famous, would not be too surprised with a UK QO, had anyone selected her in anything, particularly as the death cause is a tad odd if not unexpected - she retired in 2018. https://www.irishtimes.com/news/ireland/irish-news/tributes-as-cork-born-soprano-cara-o-sullivan-dies-aged-58-1.4468626

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2021

    His voice is that bad due to severe smoke inhalation in a house fire. That will have hit him health-wise also but it doesn't mean he's as close to death as he sounds.

    48. Shane MacGowan

    Guest on the RTÉ Late Late Show this evening, likely in one of the pre-record bits as it was a bit of a tied together mess Looked bloated and could barely attempt to sing.

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2021

    Chuck Feeney has finally given away all his money, and is 89. Suspect with his lives work over he may decline rapidly.

    Donald J Trump

    Pence would still be President until January. There is doubt over whether a President can pardon themselves; but they can certainly pardon an ex-President Note that they can't pardon state offences though; and there's a huge stack of NY State cases piling up.

    Deadio Times

    81 year old Larry Gogan, who retired from RTE last week, has died https://www.rte.ie/amp/1104730/ Almost as big a name as Marian but this wouldn't be as unexpected clearly
  9. Officially, they aren't paid at all. All voluntary, graceful amateur game (that's incredibly violent) and all that Reality is they get expenses, grants and sponsors delivered to them if they're top level.
  10. All hurlers are nominally amateur as the GAA bans professionals; there are a few who live entirely off sponsorship and others with very very spurious jobs with sponsors.

    Political Frailty

    Particularly awful (at his job) former Taoiseach (Irish PM) Brian Cowen is in intensive care for an unspecified reason. Was notably drunk on air at least once, with his party and particularly the rural elements of his party being known for hard drinking...

    Gay Byrne

    A major contemporary died today, who I thought was dead for maybe 20 years and also wouldn't have got a QO for here; but really one of the last light entertainment presenters from Gay's era left and may hit him a bit. https://www.irishtimes.com/news/ireland/irish-news/bunny-carr-former-rté-presenter-dies-aged-91-1.3635577
