Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Senator Michelle Mulherin

However, Ms Mulherin, who previously obtained tickets when she was a TD for Mayo, criticised the GAA over its approach, saying: “In my view, this is clear discrimination by the GAA in relation to members of the Oireachtas.”

Ms Mulherin said she does not understand why senators are treated differently to TDs.

She claimed senators are equally supportive of the GAA at a local level and that this seems to have been overlooked by the Croke Park authorities.

Good times.

    The Seanad is nothing more than the Oireachtas creche. Whiny baby outburst from a failure like Mulherin simply proves it.

    Ah now, this is a bit harsh on poor Michelle. She is positively polite compared to the savagery that goes on in the hunt for tickets. Especially from uncouth Dubs who seldom have any reason to feel Irish or proud.

      “Especially from uncouth Dubs who seldom have any reason to feel Irish or proud.”

      – apart from all those other All-Irelands that we won over the past few years.

      I didn’t mean to hurt you,
      I’m sorry that I made you cry,
      Oh my I didn’t want to hurt you,
      I’m just a jealous guy

        Amen to that – a real part of the problem in this country, Tony. Petty jealousy and parochialism instead of solidarity against the real enemies. So sad.

      Look, when you bog types sleep in your wellies, you can’t moan about your slurry stained sheets…. Learn your place you mouth breathing trotter…

        I love that “everyone outside Dublin is a sinkin bogger” routine, the English had the same attitude, not surprising given the similarities

        Steady on there….
        Most Dubs are only a generation or two removed from cow poo.
        So just calm down a little.

          I know. That’s sorta my point! This is and them schtick is moronic. This country is far too small and far to parochial for an us and them. The vast majority of folks lifting here originated from the sticks….

    Good line on her Wiki page,”She called for National service to be introduced in order to tackle a “culture of entitlement”….”

    Unlike TDs, senators do not have any formal geographic mandate whatsoever. They represent vocational panels or are Taoiseach’s nominees.

    She represents Carnsore Point as much as Belmullet.

    any defense for her falls when she starts accusing the GAA of discrimination .. oh the poor overlooked Senators, they get such a hard time, going to work for 2 hours a week one day a week on massive salaries doing fupp all. it’s hardly 12 years a slave.

    Wait til she finds out Senators have to pay a contribution towards the cost of transcontinental phone sex.

        I would never normally comment on anyone’s appearance (glass houses, stones etc.) but this lady is ugly, both inside and outside.
