Mary reveals a road-to-Carlow conversion

THEM shagging Greens, opposing all them motorways -- until they actually see that they're a good idea after all.

Green Carlow-Kilkenny TD Mary White was asked in a radio debate on Wednesday to name the biggest regret of her political career so far.

She said it was opposing the M9 motorway from Dublin to Waterford, since she thought it was great altogether now.

Mary pointed out that she lives in Borris, Co Carlow, and the road was previously very bad altogether but that the new motorway had transformed her life.

What's next? Trevor Sargent ditches the pushbike and buys a gas-guzzling Harley Davidson? Or John Gormley ditches the vegetarian lifestyle for a greasy Burger King?

They don't make tree huggers like they used to, I'll tell you that.
