Default Keep getting news feeds ?

Just a quick Poll here to see if people are happy with the news reporting here. Or if they want to add other RSS news feeds.

I like them, they keep me in the loop with what's going on at home.

In fact, I'd prefer if they were expanded.

They are pretty customisable , so if you know of a news source i.e. breakingnews.ie that has an RSS feed, I can set it to scan and read the feed and check for keywords. So keywords and feed links is all I need.

Maybe I can get someone to moderate the news, and remove un-interesting stuff. And merge similar news.

like twod be cool to get some maybe odd news the like stumbleupon has etc. entertaining and light reading.

i reckon the general news is okay, we seem to have an awful lot of roads and crashes whish is grand and all but at end of day we hear about such everyday.

entertainment news would be cool. does entertainment.ie have feeds?

To be honest if I wanted a breakingnews.ie feed I'd subscribe to it myself! But maybe not everyone would be willing/able to do that
