QEII does her job rightly, and she is well over 84.

I might be wrong because I'm not an avid Royal follower but wouldn't Micky D be at a lot more events that the Queen?

Personally I would like to see an election and I hope that he wins it again. I also hope it's not the same shambles as the last one we had for President. Sf possibly putting forward Francis Black was one I read. That nutjob Fergal Sharkey also wants a run on a right wing anti immigration agenda.

In fairness to her it's been a long time since her own county (Queens County) made it.

She categorically ruled herself out in the last few days.

There has only ever been one election involving a sitting president, 1966. In all other cases where a sitting president ran again they were unopposed.

Michael D is 77 (Sabina is 74). He will be 84 when he comes to the end of his second term. Not being disrespectful but there is a high chance of him dying in his second term.

Hard to know what his energy levels would be to do some of his duties as he goes into old old age over the next 7 years.

I hope someone else throws their hat in the ring. Somebody who is no an ex-taoiseach!

You have to be 35 to run for or become President. If there is a Age limit at one end. Why not at the other?

Imagine what would (rightly) happen if you suggested someone was an unsuitable candidate because of their gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or handicap. Ageism - the invisible frontier for liberal democracy.

I see the Gallagher chap who stood in 2011 wants to go again.
Shinners to consider putting up a candidate.
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

Damned if I know what people have against him. He's good at it and he's an honourable man.

The people saying there's "no need for a head of state" should go back to civics class, assuming they ever took one.
