Click to listen to yesterday’s Drivetime show and an interview with Cathy O’Halloran about a conference at which Celia Larkin was giving a speech about branding. (FF to about 20mins on this link..they’ll put the specific segments up later in the day when you can go straight to the piece).
I am so impressed with Celia. The meeja showed up at her gig and she turned the tables on them, asking them questions from the podium and then left the hotel refusing to answer their questions. Alright, so she was given a “loan” to buy a house which she only paid back when the Tribunal found about it. We know not the source of the money nor the tax implications, but for sheer poise, she delivered a masterclass at that conference.
But tell me this, from where has the convention emerged that she is constantly being referred to as the Taoiseach’s “Life Partner”? Clearly she is not his life partner. She was his partner for….I dunno, 10 years? What’s wrong with “former partner”.
