An Irishman Abroad

An Irishman In America with Marion McKeone (What Is The Point Of The Impeachment Show: Is Vaccine Rollout A Hidden Fiasco?): (Trailer)

February 12, 2021
As shocking as the impeachment trial evidence is, you can’t help feeling that with the numbers stacked in favour of acquittal, “What is the point of all of this?” Jarlath puts it to Marion that the supposed purpose for this drawn out process might just backfire in the eyes of the international community. There’s brief panic as Marion almost agrees with Donald Jnr. and a bizarre story of a getting offered a vaccine at the meat counter of a Washington deli! Jarlath quizzes Marion on the state of the US vaccine and the challenges being faced in winning trust. Marion commits to attending the “Return Of The Craic” online comedy club on Friday February 19th because as they both admit, a week this long needs the antidote of laughter to finish it off. 
If you have a question for Marion please send it through to and Jarlath will do his best to include it in the next episode.
