An Taoiseach Bertie Ahern stops in Millstreet

bertie2 by Fionn2006.An Taoiseach Berti Ahern passed through town this evening about 4:30pm on his way between party functions in Macroom and Kanturk. He was greeted in the square by Fianna Fáil party members, and the general public. He had a brief word with some of the locals, a quick interview with LTV2, shook everyones hand, but was swiftly on the road again, because he was running late for his kanturk function.

His stop is only seven weeks after Enda Kenny visited Millstreet where he visited the school. He was also doing some pre-election campaigning around Cork North-West.

Maybe it’s the first time in a while where the political powers that be actually think that we’re important to them. It’s probably because the constituency lines for Cork North-West have been changed for the upcoming elections, and it’s rearing up to be a real dogfight.
