Jaysus will you STOP.

The doomsters were hoping for someone else.

You have made their Christmas even more gloomy.

The FAILERS and SHINNERs were in agreement :)

In fairness, he was the obvious and probably only real choice!

Coveney is dire and only there because his old man was one of the in-crowd but he is streets ahead of the old witch he is replacing :)

I reckon Leo might have hoped for someone else , say put Humphreys in as a gender token , she is no threat to him. But I suspect that he has got feedback that it might not go down too well with the members if Coveney was overlooked again, and it might foster some divisions. After all he was the 'obvious' choice first time round as well.

A great line from Lisa -

Mary Lou McDonald says Varadkar now has a very Cork flavour in his government – “Michael Creed, Jim Daly who I don’t see here, Micheál Martin…”petunia

A very predictable choice.
A logical and common sense choice.
After the week Leo has had he didn't need to be putting the two fingers up to Coveney by picking someone else. He will want a bit of stability in his party after this.

I wouldn't describe Coveney as being that bad and he is on a different planet in ability levels compared to Fitzie Fitzie, for sure!

It has been reported that the Councillors basically insisted on it!

Is he a Lesbian , Black , Immigrant , Transgender , Other ?
Well he is a Corkonian and they are most definitely completely, absolutely and totally unique!:rolleyes:

Even the term 'Corkonian' sounds like a recently discovered new species on Star Trek! :rolleyes:
