Eoin Ryan, Slurp! Slurp!

The poster on the left was spotted on the Dublin north quays this morning. I don’t know who is behind it, but it’s quite amusing nevertheless. Excuse the poor quality of the picture, as I took it with my less-than-cutting-edge mobile which runs on steam.

It reads “Please send me on the Gravy Train to Europe. Slurp! Slurp!” and purports to be an election poster for Fianna Fail’s Eoin Ryan.

If the current election polls are to be believed, however, it looks like Mr Ryan will be disembarking said train. Sadly, it looks like smug Shinner Mary Lou McDonald is set to keep her seat.

I'm sure Mary Lou loves a sup of gravy too, on the occasions she bothers to turn up, that is.

8.00am June 8th.

Glad to say I was wrong. Thankfully, it looks like McDonald won't be getting her happy meal ticket either. Socialist Pary candidate Joe Higgins has won the third Dublin seat.

Congrats, Joe!!!!

This time the Socialist sang:
"The train is rolling down the track,
Listen to the wheels go clickety clack,
Over the bridge, around the bend,
Taking me for a ride."

Train keeps a-rolling but without Mr. Ryan ;-)

And also, it's no longer "Hello, ..." but now "Good-bye Mary Lou" ;-)

Yes Harald... I've just added a postscript to the original post.

Joe Higgins is someone who IS "the best fighter money can't buy" - and Mary Lou now has more time to devote to mothering. Great news all round!

Great news for the kids of Mary-Lou, great news for the rest of us - far more than we could expect.

Yes Harald. Maybe there's some hope after all? This is the best I've felt on a Monday morning for some time...
