    Default When did Healy Rae Jr get in to the Oireachtas?

    Know he's circulating letters about local issues in Oireachtas envelopes anyway.

    Presume this is a matter that has been touched on again and again before with regard to politicians the length and breadth of the country and not just a Healy Rae, but not sure that makes it acceptable or appropriate.

    Anyone know the guidelines in this area?

    Despite everything, the contracts for the family firm, the expenses, even his daughter landing the post office job in the Kilgarvan area much to noone's surprise, he'll still get a lot of votes.

    Surely no guidelines allow a non-Oireachtas member to use Oireachtas (postage paid I presume?) envelopes. It sounds like misappropriation of State resources to me.

    A letter to the Clerk of the Dail outlining the details would soon clarify things?

    The Healey Rae "Cap" virus is a virulent strain of the Gombeen virus. Once it becomes airborn it can spread out from Kerry straight to Dublin and back again almost daily, causing huge holes in expense sheets.

    I was wondering the converse though.

    I agree that they should not use the envelopes and free mail service - even if his own daughter is around delivering it. I'm just wondering if this has been specifically set out to Councillors, you know the whole Callely 'if someone can show me where I did wrong' nonsense that politicians seem to like.

    Gombeen politics at its best. The People of Kerry deserve what they vote for.

    Would you be from the same 'Cork' that elects public reps like PJ Sheehan, Noel O'Flynn and Kathleen Lynch?

    Hilarious.
