8/19/2019

He'll have to try a lot harder Things are getting a bit hairy yet again for O'Leary's low-cost airline, with a reported 180 pilots due to go on strike at midnight this Thursday. They have voted to hold a 48 hour strike in a dispute over pay conditions, but are things really that tight for them? The Ryanair tycoon phones up the Breakfast Show to plead his innocence on Gift Grub, saying those "spoiled & mollycoddled" pilots need to take a look at themselves!

Gift Grub - Seagulls: The Movie

8/14/2019
More
Just when you thought it was safe... Those pesky chip-stealing, dog-robbing seagulls have been causing all kinds of trouble in Ireland over the past while and this gave Gift Grub an idea for a film. What if these vermin are secretly plotting global domination? What if it's their tern to rule? In what is billed as the 'scariest movie of the summer', these gulls means business!
