Hated her politics with a passion and often got into flaming rows with her supporters, but heard just now a fascinating story about her from Jimmy Woulfe of the Examiner on RTE radio news.
Appears she became friendly through correspondence with a guy on death row in US. He eventually converted to catholicism and became an ardent hurling fan and learned to speak Irish. She arranged for a Limerick jersey, signed by the players, to be sent to him and he had it and clips about hurling on the walls of his cell. Three times he was about to be executed, called off at the last minute each time. He eventually died of cancer in, I think, 2007. Probably much longer story in tomorrow's Examiner.
Come in till I bate ya.
