It is almost 11 years since Michael D Higgins was voted in as President of Ireland for the first time – and he has not been shy about letting his feelings be known during his tenure.

However, this time it is Mr Higgins’ wife Sabina who is in the spotlight over a letter to the Irish Times in relation to the war in Ukraine. It was published, and subsequently deleted from, the official presidential website.
