Happy to report, despite the crowds Joan didn't need a Garda escort to get out!
FF TD John Curran was a few seats up and FG's Noel Rock was close by also. Both were looking happy but with their pension pots for doing fuck all why wouldn't they be.
I was actually sitting beside Joe Kiernan, a sounder man you wouldn't meet. Obviously he doesn't qualify but would rather mention him, who has achieved something than the other three layabouts.
