    Why did you choose Fine Gael when you chose politics?

    Just back from the meeting there, great crowd. Met George beforehand for 10-15 mins, lovely guy, really genuine. May take a few days to type out the interview though.

    you met him shane??? when. were you in the ice-bar?? i didn’t see you LOL

    The amount of details given last night is just too broad to put on paper.
    It’s clearly an incentive to the irish people to have fine gael in power. having said that, we need a yes vote for lisbon,and we need fine gael in power before NAMA is passed.
    Pass this on to everyone regardless of what age. Words spread fast.
