SENATOR David Norris today did something rarely seen in Irish politics – by delivering on a pre-election promise.
The veteran Senator promised before the Seanad referendum that he would shave off his beard if it was defeated.
True to his word, this morning on the Ray D’Arcy show on Today FM, Senator Norris shaved off the beard he has kept for 40 years.
On seeing his new clean shaven appearance for the first time in the mirror, the outspoken gay rights activist proclaimed: “Oh my God, I look like Michael Noonan!”
Members of the public have been donating money to charity to support the Senator’s efforts.
