It seems that old Dan Healy Rae,
Needs media attention each day,
He thinks that the hicks,
Should drink drive in the shticks,
While the Gardaí look the other way.

        Thie term hick is used here to refer to anyone who lives in rural Kerry, not just Healy Rae voters, it’s offensive to me and the thiusands of other Kerry natives who find the permit idea to be ridiculous. Lets get a bit of perspective here. This was a publicity stunt. A radio Kerry poll is currently 71 % against the permit idea.
