Really Bob, have we all got a 'touch of the tar' in us?

Cathal MacCarthy

IN ALL sorts of interesting ways I've noticed that the words "maverick Galway" function on my nervous system in the same manner as the words "serial killer".

You know the form yourself: "Maverick Galway politician says city has nearly enough festivals," or "Maverick Galway poet signs off and takes job."

Like most Irish people, I long ago noted the unfortunate propensity of many from the City of the Tribes to volunteer loudly very 'right-on' and usually nonsensical answers to complicated questions that nobody was directing at them. Nobody with any sense, anyway.
