  • May 08, 2008 at 11: 04 AM the president of ireland is largely a ceremonial head of state, directly elected by the people separately from parliamentary elections. the head of government is the taoiseach or prime minister, who is the one with political leadership of parliamentary coalitions. electing a woman president in ireland is significant symbolically, but the entire electorate is aware that she's been awarded a status symbol, and not real political power. so electing a leftist or liberal woman with no dynastic ties president is a way of making a statement about who the irish people would like the world to see them as, without having to actually award real power to a woman with no real political clout. by the way, rep of ireland has yet to have a woman taoiseach.

  • THE Irishman is never quite

    Contented with his little lot;

    He 's ever thirsting for a fight,

    A grievance he has always got;

    And all his energy is bent

    On trying not to pay his rent.

    He lives upon a frugal fare

    (The few potatoes that he digs),

    And hospitably loves to share

    His bedroom with his wife and pigs ;

    But cannot settle even here,

    And gets evicted once a year.

    In order to amuse himself,

    At any time when things are slack,

    He takes his gun down from the shelf

    And shoots a landlord in the back;

    If he is lucky in the chase,

    He may contrive to bag a brace.


    Procure a grievance and a gun

    And you can have no end of fun.
