Quelque Chose #9

Mega super shiny congratulations to my cousin Ciara Conway, elected to the 31st Dáil, the first woman TD in Waterford in over fifty years. Outstanding.

  2. @ T Cup - That's Comrade Joan for ya!

    @ Blau - Cheers! We're all over the moon for her. Weird to think I have a cousin who's a TD in the Dáil.

  5. That's a brilliant Che take on Joan! Did you do that? fantastic about Ciara - we were with her all the way - well, I wasn't at the count but Twitter brought it closer at 3am! And I blogged about her successful election over at my Dispatches! She was looking great on Six-One tonight, great to see her on the plinth flanking Gilmore - Labour has highest proportion of women TDs - again!

  6. @ Vintage - I know, fifty years like, it's mad!

    @ WR - Thanks! :)

    @ Catherine - I did indeed! I had it printed on a tshirt for a friend's birthday last year. A girl at the party ended up getting me to send it to her so she could get her own one printed, because she thinks Joan is deadly! I'll check out your post about Ciara, missed her on the Six One, but I'll surely find it on the RTE site. Exciting stuff!

  7. Ahh Che Joan! That looks amazing - think you should get mugs printed up - I'd definitely buy them in bulk!
