    The day apples plans to build in Athenry were announced on radio fhe was on Galway bay fm stating that apple should be told to fix the redundant train line to Tuam in order to ship workers up fast to Athenry.
    Absolute and utter horsesh1te she was spewing and she should be reminded of this daily.a waffler. The queen of paddywhackery.
    It was the likes of her that has small towns like Athenry going backwards

    It's had to know what my favourite things about this woman are... she just keeps on giving... if I had to have a top 5 (in no particular order), Wiffy might not even get on the list..

    5. Getting her car seized for non payment of motor tax (her excuse - she take public transport)
    4. Getting done, less than 2 weeks later for not paying for her train ticket on Public Transport. (oh the ****ing irony)
    3. Claiming same sex marraige would cause the end of Mothers day (and using a anti-semitic UFO believer as her source)
    2. A local builder having to take them (her and husband) to court to get paid for the work he did on their house.
    1. Not understanding what fraping actually means and talking about "where you’re raped on Facebook" in the Oireachtas

    In fairness her wee-fee pronunciation of wifi was in a French accent and about tourists asking for the wee-fee.

    I completely forgot about this one - you couldn't make it up:D

    I'd almost move to her constituency just so I could vote for the other candidates except her.

    I know many Ph.Ds who do not call themselves "Doctor"


  • Registered Users Posts: 687 ✭✭✭ topcat77


    I work in the University and no Ph.Ds call themselves Doctor. They would only use it on academic publications.

    At least we've something to talk about rather than city traffic!


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,743 ✭✭✭✭ zell12


    Ah now
    She got 5406 1st preference votes in 2011 or 8.32% of vote, more than Kyne

    At least she makes some effort.. to make us guffaw

    In fairness to her I have never heard her call herself Doctor. Nor have I heard her bring introduced as a Doctor either. So if she's had this thing since 99, it suggests she doesn't brandish it about the place if we are surprised she has one at all.

    In all but one interaction I've had with her for work, she has mentioned her qualification or used it to introduce herself.

    Which in my line of work is counter productive.

    And her tough life-changing experiences which she encountered on a paid trip to a luxury four-star hotel in Kenya.
    The Galway senator said she requested that her husband Michael should be brought on the initial trip to Rwanda for her safety and because she said she would be lonely without him.
    "You couldn't drink the water, so you had to hold your mouth closed while someone washed your hair and you might not even have an iron."

    She continued: "It's very hard work. You have two-and-a-half to three weeks' work in one week. We start at 8 in the morning and don't finish until 5 or 6. That's a lot more work than a day at home."

    Personally I’d draw a picture of a baboons Mickey on my voting card and spoil my vote then give it to fhe.
    There’s enough paddywhackers knocking around without promoting more of them

    What's the point in NUI going to the trouble of giving you an honorary doctorate if you're not going to use the title? Of course she's in good company with Dr. Tony O'Reilly and Dr. Ian Paisley.

    I read somewhere that she considers these to be a 'plot' to discredit her, fake news if you will.
    Tho I'm at a loss as to why anyone would need to do this, its like reverse tall poppy syndrome.

    Should there be a ban on all politicians with Healy in their name?

    It's not an honorary doctorate though, is it?
    It looks like she had an actual PhD.

    That said I can't find it online. Her Masters dissertation is here for anybody that wants a read.
