    He tried to change the two party Irish political landscape and create a liberal version of Fine Gael/ Fianna Fail for those who didn't dig the civil war politics vibe from those parties.

    Didn't work obviously as there were too many career politicians in the PD's.

    And he personally held Haughey to account on numerous issues which was a good thing.

    RIP Dessie.
