Byrne lacks gravitas to be our 'first citizen'

THE office of President of Ireland is deserving of serious consideration, as the incumbent is our 'first citizen' and a representative of the nation. As such, it warrants someone of stature and diplomacy who puts the country and the position first.
Gay Byrne is not someone I would consider qualified or suitable for the position.
He is a smug media broadcaster, as irritating as Norris with his pomp and vocal mannerisms, who has done nothing of note for Ireland that I can think of.
