Last Sunday, March 4th was a very sad and traumatic day for the Labour Party in Dublin North East. Our constituency office secretary Ms. Lucy Wilson died suddenly at her home in Seagrange, Baldoyle.
On Wednesday morning I was a guest on the panel of RTE’s Leaders’ Questions programme which reviews the performance of the Taoiseach and Opposition Leaders in Dail Eireann that morning. In many ways it is like being a soccer commentator – with Bryan Dobson in the Bill O’Herlihy role and myself Shane Coleman and David Davin Power in the Giles, Dunphy and Brady roles.
This week I attended functions marking important occasions for three great Irishmen. On Monday last, there was a reception and dinner at the Darndale Hilton Hotel to mark the retirement of Padraic White from the chairpersonship of the Northside Partnership.
