AID CHARITY GOAL has this evening announced the appointment of former junior minister Barry Andrews as its new chief executive.
The former Dún Laoghaire TD, who is currently Fianna Fáil’s director of elections for the Children’s Rights referendum, will take up his position shortly.
Andrews, 45, who is a son of former minister David Andrews and a cousin of broadcaster Ryan Tubridy, succeeds John O’Shea at the helm of the charity which O’Shea himself founded in 1977.
GOAL chairman Pat O’Mahony said Andrews would begin his tenure by meeting with international donors, governments and senior staff in the 12 countries in which the body operates.

This country is badly in need of a Lutherian nailing of the 95 theses on the church door moment

Goal is a private organisation, its their business who they appoint. Barry Andrews is a very likable person, hopefully it means he won't run in the next election (I gave him a preference in the last one):lol:

Perhaps you could explain in 95 words or more why you have come to that conclusion.

Good appointment. He will improve the standing of Goal and reduce the standing of FF. Goal's gain is FF's loss. He obviously sees no way back for FF and refused the offer from ither parties.

OLd Mary Hannafin will be on her second glass of sherry-the unemployed Mary might be in the running for another chance at election, that is if Micky Martin thinks she is young enough, I would say age wise she is border line-

He is a good choice. Not withstanding all the usual huffing and puffing on here, Andrews is highly regarded by all those who deal with him.

It is a bad sign for FF though. He is one of a relatively small number of FF TDs who lost the seat who was a genuine loss, in the sense that he had an enormous amount of ability. They really did need to see him come back. A lot of the others they lost were wasters and gobshytes. He wasn't.
