      Maybe it’s more appropriate to refer to him as “Non-Party” rather than Independent, cause like he isn’t really strictly unbiased free from influence Independent

      Nice! I’ll have to wangle a lunch invite to take a look at it. I got a glossy update from Lynn Rusne in the post today about her Seanad work. What a bloody waste of paper. Hasn’t she heard of email?

        Merci, J., I did the doors for the GAA headquarters too, don’t know if they are still there. Sandblasted glass, with all the options, camogie, hurling, Gaelic football, the lot.
