Shane Ross: Prof Bertie meets Dr Sean
THE scene: the Aula Maxima in Maynooth College , Kildare on the outskirts of Dublin. A reunion of National University business alumni and other distinguished citizens selected by Maynooth College for special recognition.
Centre stage are Dr Sean Quinn and Professor Bertie Ahern.
Dr Quinn: "Morning Bertie, welcome to the Maynooth College reunion. Irish business is well-represented here today. I just love my honorary degree. With my underprivileged background, no one would ever have thought... Did you get yours for the same reason as me, Bertie?"
