Without one of our greats and a worthy winnerThe man who stood up for the people and pushed his vision for decades without a mask or weapon won the peace and the respect of the Irish voters.
A worthy winner, or who would you have preferred?
Maybe she could run for President then given her proven ability to persuade the people to determine who is "Ireland's Greatest" which might rub off on political-parties too?Miriam seemed very pleased, hopefully "Sir" Anthony & his current & former Sindo lackeys including Anguished & Failing and the garden gnome lookalike Dunphy are equally upset as they seemingly set out to destroy him.
I Voted for Collins, but it was a very difficult choice between himself and Hume and I'm happy that Hume won it. Himself and Collins are the two outstanding Irishmen of the last century. I was terrified when it went down to the last two that Connolly was going to win, but thankfully not.
have to say I felt that Connolly was that bit too far removed from today for him to be viable candidate...
By the way it'd be very interesting to know what the exact numbers of votes each candidate got.
That's exactly where he excelled.Worthy winner because he spent 4 decades at an impossible task fighting a lonely battle when others decried and abused him.
While I would love to see him going forward as President I believe he has suffered health issues and would prefer retirement.
