Hayes can teach us all a lesson

HAVING watched Liam Hayes on the 'Late Late Show' I felt compelled to write about his courage. He is battling cancer. He also spoke about the trauma that went with the suicide of his brother.

I immediately thought, 'what a great political leader he would make'. Not because of his "gift of the gab" but his sheer courage. And no matter what life had thrown at him, he met it, analysed it and fought it head on. What could a man like this do to help our country through its trials?

So when the Budget arrives and we give out because there is an extra 5 cent on the price of a pint, or another €10 is taxed out of our wages, think again.
