Davis, the quango queen

As we report in today's paper, presidential candidate Mary Davis was paid almost €190,000 for serving on three state boards between 2004 and 2009.

During this period, Ms Davis variously served on the boards of the Dublin Airport Authority, Campus Stadium Ireland, AKA the 'Bertie Bowl', and the Broadcasting Commission of Ireland.

For a candidate who claims to be independent of any party, her ability to pick up such choice political appointments is truly remarkable.
