If the signature trait of the Jackie, Michael ('Dolly') Healy-Rae political dynasty is that they do things differently, it is ironic that what may yet finish this endangered political line is the genetic similarity between these poisoned little political apples and the Fianna Fail tree they fell from.
The terrible Healy-Raes may have provided us with a bucolic dash of fresh air when they first appeared, but every tortured appearance of Jackie and 'Dolly' last week reminded us of the denouement of Animal Farm where the poor animals (us) were no longer able to differentiate between the Healy-Rae pigs and the FF humans.
Before we say a word about the toxic twosome, we should note that both deny making the 3,636 phone calls to the infamous Celebrities Go Wild programme.
