    Another teacher ....David McGuinness was elected as Councillor in Finglas in 2007 to fill the 4th seat in a 5 seater constituency on the 7th count.

    Nice pictures of Davey with Brian Cowen, former FF party leader.

    EDIT: Hasn't had time to faff around with his website yet in order to softpedal this statement from last year.

    “I would actually agree with Brian Lenihan that it is clear the worst is over and
    the Irish economic is now recovering. But it is essential that Ireland continue
    vigilantly to take measures of fiscal consolidation and if needed, take even
    further measures.

    “This follows praise from the Financial Times’ influential Lex column. This column
    is highly regarded by international financiers and businesspeople. The column
    stated that “Ireland is not in the same league as Greece: the former Celtic Tiger
    has a credible recovery plan and has bounced back before. Its public debt, now at
    64.5 per cent of output, from 25.2 per cent pre-crisis, is certainly more
    manageable than Greece’s ruinous 110 per cent, not least because Dublin –
    unlike Athens – has completed its funding requirements for this year”

    Yes I've noticed that and I have a theory but Mammy O'Rourke knows lawyers and I'm still a bit scared of the New Mod Army.

    Somewhere in the country is a nest with eggs in it.

    Ireland to Return to 3% Growth Next Year

    In its Spring Economic Forecast, the European Commission has said that Ireland
    will return to 3% growth in 2011. Commissioner Olli Rehn said the following about
    Ireland: “Ireland entered into the crisis in a very early phase and if had a very deep
    early recession. Subsequently Ireland took very bold and credible measures of
    fiscal consolidation, which is now paying off. The Irish economy is recovering.”

    I would actually agree with Brian Lenihan that it is clear the worst is over and
    the Irish economic is now recovering
    . But it is essential that Ireland continue
    vigilantly to take measures of fiscal consolidation and if needed, take even
    further measures.

    “This follows praise from the Financial Times’ influential Lex column. This column
    is highly regarded by international financiers and businesspeople. The column
    stated that “Ireland is not in the same league as Greece: the former Celtic Tiger
    has a credible recovery plan and has bounced back before. Its public debt, now at

    You couldn't make this stuff up. It sounds like something the Nazis were feeding to the German public in the Spring of 1945!
