David Quinn: Sin of omission makes 'great Irish' list a joke

SO, Bono is one of the 10 greatest Irish people ever. And so is Stephen Gately, and so is Phil Lynott. Either we're a joke, or the joke is on us.

'The Tubridy Show' has been running a poll, based on a shortlist of 40 people, to find out who we think are the 10 greatest Irish people of all time.
