Joe Doyle RIP

joe-doyleI was saddened to hear of the passing of former FG TD and Lord Mayor of Dublin Joe Doyle. I ran against Joe in the local elections of 1999, when he was mayor, and found him to be a thoughtful man who showed me great kindness at the count.

I also remembered him not being afraid to stand up publicly against racism when anti-immigrant feeling was voiced by some during his mayoralty.  

A decent man.
