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.
