    Default Uachtarain CLG to President of Ireland: Sean Kelly MEP throws hat in ring (if MDH doesn’t run)

    Best known for getting rid of rule 42 while president of the GAA, he’s been relatively quiet as an MEP and his appeal goes beyond Fine Gael.

    Does he have a chance to be selected by FG?
    Would he have a chance in a full fight v. Miriam O’Callaghan, Nessa Childers, Gerry Adams, [insert speculated name]
    Can he do the dignity thing as prez?
    What’s his view of utility of art.26 abstract challenge?
    This could be the last presidential election where a campaign will matter, if the franchise is extended to non-resident Irish and those in the 6 counties, in future we can expect President Liam Neeson, Samantha Power, Katie Taylor etc

    He's so quiet that even the voters have never heard of him.

    More vote for him in Munster than can fill Croke Park.

    Kelly would be a good candidate in that he’s not a typical Thatcherite fg man.

    He would get the fg vote and the gaa vote as well.

    Looking like Michael D will have no option but to not run.

    Couldn't believe it when he rowed back on his commitment to do one term.

    Isn't Conor McGregor running?

    Thankfully, we kept the age bar.

    Another no mark celebrity candidate. Although the GAA now have approaching zero political power, will be interesting to see if they can mobilise this million members they claim to get their man in.

    Congaltee: ...he’s been relatively quiet as an MEP
    You're proposing this person for political office.
    Does he need us to give him more gravy?

    Why would the GAA do that, I am a part of that 1 million you talk about and would stay well away from it.
