My Week: Danny Healy-Rae

Monday: Fianna Fail is still trying to say that my daughter Maura tried to use the media in her campaign to become mayor of Killarney after taking over my old seat on Kerry County Council.

Like, the way I see it is, if God wants her to become mayor of Killarney, then Mayor of Killarney she shall be, and if the Almighty wants her to use the media the way the Healy-Raes have always done, that's fine by me, too.

I'm not one to go picking a fight with Himself up there in the clouds. He's as welcome to join me for a pint down here in Kilgarvan after a hard day's work as anyone, and we'll make sure he gets back home safely no bother.
