Collins thrown to dogs during his rounds
HE's a magnet for a certain type of mutt.
County Limerick Fianna Fail TD Niall Collins was bitten by a sheepdog while out on his canvass rounds over the last few days.
It must be the aftershave he wears, since a sheepdog also took a lump out of him during the 2007 General Election campaign.
But Niall is certain it's a different dog this time around -- the 2007 biting took place in Monagea, which is now outside his redrawn constituency.
Collins also saw a former stray on the loose this week, but didn't feel tempted to bring it back to its old owner.
He spotted George Lee in his constituency the same day Enda Kenny was in town, but didn't see the need in bringing the ex-Dublin South TD, now back in his normal habitat of RTE, back to his previous master.
