Wolves star praises winner Wallace
FOOTBALL star Kevin Doyle has congratulated builder Mick Wallace on winning a Dail seat.
Mr Wallace, who topped the polls as an Independent in Wexford, travelled to Dublin yesterday with words of praise from the Wolves and Ireland soccer player ringing in his ears.
"I'm delighted for Mick," said Doyle, who is from Wexford.
"He has always been a big help to me and what he has done for the people of Wexford is brilliant.
"Knowing how he works, he will put as much into his politics as he has the football and will be a big success."
Doyle has turned to Mr Wallace for advice as his career progressed. And when the striker signed for Wolves for €7.6m he was at Molineux to act as his mentor .
The New TD is a big fan of Italian football and he has ploughed fortunes into Wexford Youths and their Turner's Cross stadium.
