A mate of mine had a flat in Marino on Dublin's northside back in what now seems like another lifetime. One evening there was some persistent ringing at the hall door and he eventually, reluctantly, went to answer.

He opened to be faced with then-Taoiseach Bertie Ahern, who beamingly introduced himself as the local TD for Dublin Central, and asked if there was anything at all he could do to boost the locality.
