Imagine putting Casey on your front page and not our President, who won every single constituency in the State. It's not a "crown" we're a Republic, he didn't "keep it" he received largest mandate of any President yet. This "souvenir" can get in the sea.

President Higgins has touched on lots of topics in his speech. Climate change he keeps coming back to, and a lack of political leadership when it comes to long term planning both for people and the planet

With his massive mandate the very least could do it attend a soup run for the homeless tomorrow. The media circus could carry his comments about the worst humanitarian disaster since the famine (which was a genocide, and also man made).

Peter Casey on with Miriam O'Callaghan on the slot at the moment. The media here are ridicilous with this fella. You'd think he won the election.
