Ireland's most Loved person
« on: February 19, 2018, 10:22:45 AM »
I thought I would start a nice positive thread for a Monday morning.  Who do you think is Ireland's most loved personality dead or alive?

Sporting heroes like Roy Keane are widely respected but not necessarily loved, ditto for Brian O'Driscoll who is widely regarded as one of our greatest ever sportsmen but not loved and adored by the nation at large.

Martin McGuinness is loved by many people but a large section of the population hold him in disdain due to his IRA past.

So who are the people that are uniformly loved and respected by the Irish Nation?

My nominations are,

Luke Kelly
Paul McGrath
Micheal O'Muircheartaigh

I'd go for Bill O'Herlihy. He was widely loved and went far too soon after retiring.

Dermot Morgan worth a mention in something like this surely.
