    Default Luke "Ming the Merciless" Flanagan- New mayor of Roscommon

    The name aside, this guy seems to have a bit about him as article below suggests.
    Voted in by councillors following the downgrading of the country hospital. The health service could be a very big issue in next election.

    Any time I have ever heard Luke speak, he's come across as a rock of sense.. like a poster above says... we need more like him

    So he smokes a bit of dope.. so what ?

    Better than being a bit of a dope

    I remember him well in Galway when I was younger. A great guy.

To such ones the modern world is nothing but betrayal and ruin.........We feel bound to disagree with these prophets of doom who are forever forecasting calamity -- as though the world's end were imminent."

    Agreed. Whats worse is he keeps it simple and still seems like an intellectual heavy weight next to out TD's.
