Oh dear.

A friend of mine, a member of the Oireachtas for many a year, no longer, was on a British/Irish trip with Donnie. A plan was hatched to find Donnie sans hair piece and the obvious one was to espy him in the swimming pool in the morning, as he used avail of same. The thinking being that no-one could maintain such a hair piece whilst swimming. My friend, a senior member of his party, and one known for his sense of humor, was duly dispatched, at an early hour, to spy on the good Senator, and conform for all time, to his brethren, that it was indeed a false hair piece supported by the good Senator. However, much to the chagrin of my friend and his colleagues, the Donnie Senator was to be espied doing a majestic breast stroke whilst never submerging any folicle, true or false, beneath the surface of the water!!!

Back in the time of Scrap Saturday, they did a feature one week called "a day in the life of Donie Cassidy", where "he" described how he liked nothing more than "a drive in my open-topped car on a sunny day, with my hair blowing in the wind - though I always come back and pick it up later". Anyway, Donie was furious about this, and all sorts of threats and demands for apologies went winging their way to RTE. Eventually the Scrap team agreed to apologise, and duly led the following week's show with this:

"We wish to sincerely apologise for any suggestion in last week's show that Senator Donie Cassidy's hair is not his own. We now fully accept that not only is Senator Cassidy's hair his own, but that he also has the receipts to prove it".

They never heard from him again. :lol:

(Though in the good Senator's defence, he runs the Oireachtas Golf Society, and is an absolute gentleman.)

reminds me of the spitting image sketches years ago which featured Paul Daniels' wig running off to the countryside to become a sheepdog and taking part in "one man and his dog", legendary stuff

Scrap Saturday made Donie's syrup a regular feature. When Donie was alleged to have used Dail editing facilities to have edited a Foster & Allen video, "Haughey" says "I take my hat off to him" The "PJ" character replies "Careful, Boss, he may take his hair off to you".

At a League of Ireland match the elderly centre forward was sporting a wig.After the first header the wig fell off.The opposing goalkeeper picked it up and threw it into the crowd where it was thrown around for the remainder of the match to great cheers.

He needs something to take the focus off of his lack of a brain.

In a debate on 10 April 2008, he stated the following about house prices in Ireland: "We have a duty to tell first-time house buyers, young couples with no previous experience, that there is unbelievable value in the marketplace today. It will not last forever. It is never the wrong time to do the right thing. I offer the House the benefit of my experience and my opinion which is all any Member can do. I will remind the House, perhaps in 12 or 18 months, when prices have again increased by 25% or 30%, that they were told this by the Leader of the House on this historic day, the tenth anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement."

There was also the story (possibly apocryphal) about the time Sen Cassidy missed an important FF parliamentary party vote…Donies meek excuse was that he was caught out due to being out having his hair cut and lost track of time. The quip from the back of the room attributed to GV Wright was ‘why didn’t you just go and buy another one’!

Olivia O'Leary (I think) once wrote a column about FF using dodgy wigs as a power strategy.

Her reasoning was that anyone confronted by one thus coiffed would be so focused on not staring at the thing, that their mental capacity would be so seriously diminished as to let the wearer away with murder.
