    Default Why is Brian Crowley so popular?

    I live in the South constituency and all I have seen of him is his posters.

    Does he have enough localised support in Cork to get (?) 30% in South?

    Genuinely puzzled.

    I asked someone this question earlier, they came up with the less than pc approach that Irish people have sympathy and support for the underdog.

    I have met him and he is a fairly likeable person but i do not understand the buzz which surrounds him (he also seems to poll very well with women).
    If the banks are out for a bail,
    and Lenny's efforts end up as a fail,
    when the Somer does come,
    to the Country they'll run,
    And leave a Fine mess for the Gael.

    Endinf the one Party (FF) state:

    is it not cos his td father not the wheechair but he certainly uses it see this puke
    Character

    He received a diploma in law in 1993 from University College Cork, and the following year he was nominated by the Taoiseach Albert Reynolds to the 20th Seanad Éirean

    http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/new...cle4882157.ece

    He father, Flor, was the local TD and a supporter of Charles Haughey who ran a pub...

    In 1993 Albert Reynolds offered him a seat in the Seanad. Local gossip has it that the then taoiseach’s offer was to compensate Crowley’s father for not being given the chairmanship of a local college.

    Can't think of anything he has ever done. He will be looking for the President's job. Can't believe that he will get it though

    Still don't get it.

    Will never understand the Irish Electorate, especially in the provinces.

    What has Brian Crowley done for the country?

    Sympathy vote. Simple.

    Not that there is anything wrong with voters showing a bit of sympathy.

    Wheelchair and the fact that he prays to St. Mary of Guadoloupe.
    He has blandness down to a fine art.

    The innate kindness of most Irish people.

    Heaven knows, but his big smiley 'Owen Wilson' head is looking down on me everywhere I go, because for some reason, despite being right on the Dublin border, I share a constituency with him, but not with Dublin politicians who live a few hundred yards from my front door.

    I'd love to know what bell-end designed the boundaries.
    I have no money, but I love my life.
