Noel Dempsey.

Posted by Jason O on Dec 17, 2010 in Irish Politics |

The retirement decision of Noel Dempsey reminded me of a conversation I had once with an ambitious candidate about the pointlessness, at times, of Irish politics. He was full of passion for change, and I pointed out to him that Noel Dempsey, who had advocated radical political¬†reforms in the past,¬†had even managed to reach the cabinet and yet still had been unable to actually do anything. It’s a depressing thought.
