The Matt Treacy Column

2 March 2006

Such was the demand for tickets for the Dublin v Wicklow National hurling league game at Parnell Park, that myself and Councillor Larry O'Toole had to purchase ours at vastly over the odds on e-Bay.

Media View

2 March 2006

Fintan O'Toole would not wish to be regarded as an ideological soulmate of his colleague, that rabid reactionary, Kevin Myers. Fintan is, after all politically correct in that liberal Irish Times-knows-best way that preaches responsible support for trade unionists, women, ethnic groups and so on - as long as such people don't do anything dangerous like actually fight for their rights. also While various politicians and media pundits recently vied with each other to condemn Mayor of Kerry Toiréasa Ferris, it was local people who reflected real public opinion about the Sinn Féin councillor.
