Former Rose of Tralee Maria Walsh is hoping to run for FG. The prominent LGBT rights activist said deciding to run for Fine Gael was easy as the party aligns with her "core values". As part of those core values she says the homeless crisis is "universal" not just a problem in Ireland and suggested that nurses are well paid. With no political experience that I know of but having the right values for FG having worked in RTE for a short while, surely the gay ex Rose of Tralee is proof of the charade Irish politics has become now with tuppence ha'penny 'celebrity' candidates ?
