Journalist and Presidential hopeful Gemma O’Doherty
A selection of tweets from journalists this week following Gemma O’Doherty’s declared intention on Sunday night to seek a nomination to run for President of Ireland.
Including messages from Peter Murtagh, of The Irish Times, Matt Cooper, of Today FM, Kitty Holland, of The Irish Times, journalist and broadcaster Eamonn McCann; Róisín Ingle , of the Irish Times and a tweet from Michael O’Regan, of the Irish Times highlighted by Diarmuid O’Flynn of Ballyheas Says No.
The Aras tilt follows a speech given last month at the Danielle Carroll Summer School, where, with a particular focus on the media, Ms O’Doherty attacked corruption in Irish life.
Aras elections are filthy. Prospective candidates must be scrutinised and equally. Whether we personally like or loathe them, each is entitled to be treated in a way that doesn’t demean or dehumanise. #Aras18 @GavinDuffy @gemmaod1 #KevinSharkey #JoanFreeman @PresidentIRL
