30 July 2010

Taoiseach, a chara,
I hear that Bertie has decided against running for the Áras. Is fearr rith maith ná droch sheasamh – a good run is better than a bad stand, I suppose.
Anyway, what set me thinking about the upcoming election for President of Ireland was a photograph in the Belfast Telegraph of Poles going to the polls in a community centre on the Ormeau Road. Then I met some... Free article

Sinn Féin Senator Pearse Doherty was talking to me as he awaited a High Court ruling on the very... Free article
