Mr Tallaght gives Norris the tour

Mr Tallaght is definitely living up to his name. Former Fianna Fail TD

Charlie O'Connor was called on yesterday to usher one of the presidential candidates around his backyard.

David Norris called Charlie and asked him to guide him around the Square shopping centre, and he was more than happy to oblige.

Not that it means he'll be supporting or voting for Mr Norris, Charlie was keen to stress. He also said he expects to get a call from other candidates looking for a steer around Tallaght.

Your chance to grill candidates

Fancy yourself as a bit of a Vincent Browne? Well, now's your chance -- so get practising your withering put-downs and dust down your best looks of contempt.

Google are hosting a presidential debate where joe public -- that's me and you -- get to ask the questions.

All you have to do is upload a question onto a specially made YouTube site, and hope it gets voted as one of the most popular by users of the website.

The questions will be put to the candidates during a special debate held at Google's Dublin HQ on October 24.

Higgins is an old romantic at heart

Michael D Higgins had his ups and downs during his visit to Killarney yesterday.

He couldn't satisfy requests to climb onto one of the town's famous jaunting cars because he has a brace on his leg -- which he broke during a past visit to Colombia.

But there was a touching moment later on when he was walking down the main street in Killarney. He instinctively put out his hand and his wife Sabina grasped it. The two walked hand in hand down the street. "Not too old to be romantic," said one onlooker approvingly.
