Time Healy-Rae threw his hat into the ring

A NUMBER of prominent Irish men and women are being mentioned as presidential candidates -- decent and honourable citizens to boot.
Ergo, I nominate Jackie Healy-Rae to toss his cap into the ring.
Being a veteran cap-wearer, he has many advantages over every other candidate. When meeting the queen, it would be 'at the drop of a hat'; greeting the public 'hat in hand'; attending a Kerry v Anon All-Ireland Final he would be 'wearing two hats', as well as 'taking his hat off' to the winners.
