Mary takes the easy way down Dail plinth
HER most famous trip on the plinth in Leinster House was in her red Hyundai car -- but Mary Mitchell O'Connor took the more conventional route yesterday.
The Dun Laoghaire TD was helpfully led down the plinth by Arts Minister Jimmy Deenihan, who pointed the way for her.
But she looked slightly concerned as she prepared to tackle the steps she ramped off in her car a few weeks ago during one of her first days in the Dail.
And even though Ms Mitchell O'Connor was wearing a pair of high heels yesterday, and looked a bit unsteady on her feet, she made it off the plinth in one piece.
