- General Zod: Not welcome in Dana’s Aras.
Irish presidential candidate Dana Rosemary Scallon has confirmed that if elected president of Ireland next month she will refuse to kneel before General Zod or any other extra-terrestial conqueror.

Fianna Fail TD Niall Collins attacked the government for not having a plan to fight alien invasion.
