Minister for Justice Charlie Flanagan and new Chief Justice Frank Clarke
Department of Justice
The Minister for Justice and Equality Charlie Flanagan at the presentation of the newly-published Irish version of the Rules of the Superior Courts to newly-appointed Chief Justice Frank Clarke, a life long supporter of Fine Gael.
By all accounts he is a progressive highly competent person.
Good times indeed.
Must be very lonely for him.
trying to conduct an intelligent conversation with Charlie Flanagan?? I’m sure it’s very trying for him also.
They’ll never find another Hardiman.
State of the Ned Kelly on him.
I wish him well. A very decent man. I’m sure there will be many difficulties in the future, which he is more than capable of overcoming.
He has a fine head of hair on him. Smart, principled man. It’ll be interesting to see how he leads the SC.
“You mean I have to read this?”
I don’t have any problem with Frank Clarke personally, or his appointment as Chief Justice. But it would be nice for once to see a Judge appointed who simply has no connection whatsoever to any political party.
Or to the media: c.f. Previous.
The only way that could be achieved is if they were kept and raised from birth, away from political influence, in a cave or bunker like domicile. They would be a bit feral and probably poor judges, yelling in their feral language and tossing feces at their honorable friends, though without bias or prejudice.
Yes, how terrible it would be to live apart from the noble, civilising influence of party politics. /s
Good luck to him. But isn’t that a picture of Frank Carson?
Frank Clark used to be an electrician. Re-wired by folks’ house back in the day. Did a sh1te job by all accounts.
Grafted his way thru college and JC days
Nothing wrong with that
‘did it meself
“this is a book”
Apparently he’s a solicitor.
Still thick though..
Being a solicitor is NO mark of intelligence. I am living proof of that: I’m a right dope.
I never heard of him until now, but somebody in Fine Gael obviously has had an eye on him for some time.
