    Default Denis Landy retires

    https://www.labour.ie/news/2017/11/2...or-denis-land/

    Very sorry to hear of the decision of Senator Denis Landy to retire from politics because of ill-health. This is sad news and a loss to the people of Carrick on Suir and surrounding districts. Denis has been an outstanding public representative, a hardworking man of integrity.

    He is a huge loss to Labour and to Tipperary. The reality that Carrick is split 3 ways and has a smaller population than Clonmel has meant it rarely had a representative in the Oireachtas.
    Denis is a decent man and I wish him and his family well and hope he recovers.

    I have a massive interest in Irish politics and have had for the past half-century, yet until I read your post, I had never heard of this man.

    Can you link me to any legislation that he tabled or to any significant or notable speech that he made during his time in the Seanad.

    A quick google turned up the following gem:-

    is that it?

    Pompous git. Denis is extremely well known nationally, especially in the south east. You're just displaying your massive ignorance after your 'massive interest in Irish politics and have had for the past half-century'. Do you own f˙ckin research.

    Why is he "a huge loss to Tipperary"?
    Denis O'Brien has stated that he never made payments to ex FG Minister Ml Lowry.

    Go back to your 'quick Google' research and look up 'f˙cking eejit'. I'm sure you'll find yourself there.
