Gould can delete comments on his Facebook feed, afaik he can't on twitter. If you want to get a proper snapshot on Facebook, check the comments on someone that shared his post. Mick Barry got ate alive over his support for the marches on Facebook but by the end of the day only positive comments for Mick were left.

New slipway for the RCYC down in Crosser as much as he delivered.
Lumps of wood are more cunning than Simon ffs!

Jerry is a batin bird. Look out for FGs next rising star Cllr Shane O'Callaghan. Cork South Central in Grange - unlike Buttimer no issues with boundaries being drawn and redrawn. Married man with a young family and he's a barrister by profession. Methinks O'Callaghan will need to up his profile a bit but he certainly ticks a lot of FG boxes and it's not as though Buttimer didn't get a number of chances but failed miserably.

Yeah for sure.....Most of the grounds,pitches,club s and venues were either created or upgraded when Bernard was in office.I'm speaking from experience too and know from other clubs/sports also.

Yeah - say what you want about Allen (and he was never going to bother the Mensa selection committee) but he knew how to deliver for his patch.
Not many FG politicians can point to unbroken 30 year dail term in the era in which he served.
He did more as a Junior minister for his locality in 3 years than Simon did as senior cabinet minister/tainiste in almost a decade. He was never cabinet material but knew the worth of the old mantra "all politics is local".

Yeah for sure what? Are you trying to deny that was his reaction to the english rioting fans in Lansdowne Road? You may have great personal experience of Burke, and I don't doubt you for a minute, but to put it in context Ennis here thinks that Eoghan Murphy was a great Minister for Housing and he has personal experience of him too. I'm afraid it doesn't quite work like that.

I think that's a fair synopsis of the guy. Not the sharpest but very popular locally for what he managed for his constituents.

Simey and the two Mickeys could and indeed should have a huge say for CSC and Cork in general. Let's see if they do right by us. Simey has done nada for us in 9 years as a Minister, fingers crossed the two Mickeys do enough and make Simey realize he needs to get on board as well or be shown up in even starker contrast as being about as useful as a chocolate fire-guard.
