Are there any universally loved Irish people

Are there any Irish people who are loved by everybody, or practically everybody anyway?
The only 1 I can think of to even come close to it is Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh.
Any others?

My opinion of him went down when he failed to laugh off the ludicrous suggestion that he could run for the presidency. Bit self-important.

I don't think there's anyone in the world that is universally loved.

John Creedon seems to be very popular.

Shane Lowry as well.

Imelda May seems pretty sound. I don't know anyone who doesn't like her.

Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh?

Can't stand him, not a GAA head so find his bogger warbling very annoying.

Packie Bonnar. Never heard anything bad about him.

Larry Gogan.

Katie Taylor

Maybe Bill O Herlihy.

My favourite but not sure what others think Brendan Grace

She's a woman though, so you can be guaranteed there'll be lads on Boards who don't like her.

Not to be cantankerous but I don't like him. Don't know him personally, am basing it on his public persona.
