Now where did I hear his name recently ...Ah Yes now I remember , Independent councillor Niall ring is no virgin when it comes to court and finance ,The former best mate of Bertie Aherne and member of more boards than you can count has recently been elected Lord mayor of Dublin .

Should personal debts be taken to account regarding the Mayor of Dublin?

Another Dublin Mayor is a dodgy politician.....is this "news" ?

Bertie was mayor himself, setting the standard at a very low level.....somewhere in the sewer, actually.

"Ring was part of Bertie Ahern's St Luke's inner circle for several years, but when the Dublin north city boy was elected to that ward of Dublin City Council in 2009 it was as an independent, having not been selected to run for the party. He had run for Fianna Fail in 2004, losing narrowly"

The Lord Mayor's Great Chain of Office dates from 1698 and is composed of links representing the Tudor rose and links in the shape of the letter S. On each side is a harp and at the lowest point is a link in the shape of a porcullis. A circular gold medal with the bust of William III hangs from the Chain.

INDEPENDENT COUNCILLOR NIAL Ring has been elected as the new Lord Mayor of Dublin.

Ring was elected by fellow councillors this evening at the Annual Council Meeting and becomes the 349th Lord Mayor of the city.

The Dublin north inner city councillor takes over the role from Sinn Féin’s Micheál Mac Donncha.

Ring’s election to the role had been all but guaranteed after he was nominated by fellow Independent and inner city councillor Christy Burke.

This is due to a formal pact between Sinn Féin, Labour and an Independent grouping of rotating the mayorship.


Look who we can thank. I thought they didn`t like Fianna FAIL or DEVELOPERS etc....
