Presidential welcome as drawn out campaign ends for Halloween

The sense of relief is palpable this week as the October Bank Holiday rolls in and finally, the 2011 Irish presidential election campaign comes to a close. For better or worse we have now elected our new president and whatever political elections, by-elections, local or national arise in the next seven years, all going well, we won't have to worry about who will occupy the Áras for that period at least.

All Michael D has to do is keep his eye on the ball

Like an elf picking his way across a dangerous river, all he has to do is look out for the small smooth stepping stones, ignoring the tempting delights of the seemingly innocuous rocks which carry within them potential slips that could see him splash into the water. And before each leap, he must take a look left and then right. And if he can do that, then the gates of the Phoenix Park will beckon before him, the lush grass inviting him inside, rewarding him for a lifetime of service. Yes, that is just how close Galway is to having its first ever Uachtarain na hEireann. For a county that has provided leaders in almost every other sphere apart from Taoiseach and President, it is now very likely that Michael D will go into the last few weeks of the election campaign with the prize being his to lose. Althought there is many a slip twixt the cup and the lip, the manner in which the presidential debate has descended into verbal street-fighting has done a lot of the work for the Labour candidate.

‘I have advantage in experience’ says Michael D of his bid for presidency

image preview

Presidential candidates “experience and competence”, and “ability to represent Ireland at home and abroad”, not personality politics or scandalous stories of their past, will determine who will become Uachtarán na hÉireann.

All signs point to a Michael D presidency

The only person who stands between Labour party president and former Galway West TD Michael D Higgins and the position of Uachtaráin na hÉireann is Sinn Féin’s Martin McGuinness.
