    Default John Hume Voted Ireland's Greatest.



    The man who stood up for the people and pushed his vision for decades without a mask or weapon won the peace and the respect of the Irish voters.

    A worthy winner, or who would you have preferred?

    In the absence of DevilEire ,FF voters swung it away from Collins.
    You'd think Kenny committed Treason and brought in IMF. Cowen had all in stitches in Galway at 3.30a.m.but he was "not impaired" -DD Power. FF=Publican páirtí an IMF.

    Without one of our greats and a worthy winner

    Always remember John saying the most obvious thing in the world. What is the world all about without people, animals running wild and overgrown vegetation

    A brave and determined man

    Absolutely worthy. He created the solution and led everybody on to that ground.

    Miriam seemed very pleased, hopefully "Sir" Anthony & his current & former Sindo lackeys including Anguished & Failing and the garden gnome lookalike Dunphy are equally upset as they seemingly set out to destroy him.

    Maybe she could run for President then given her proven ability to persuade the people to determine who is "Ireland's Greatest" which might rub off on political-parties too?

    Good. I'd hoped it would be him or Mary Robinson tbh. (I voted for Mary myself)

    Whoever nominated Michael Collins or Bono should emigrate.
