Gallagher thinking outside the box on posters

WITH interest I read of Sean Gallagher’s proposal to the Presidential candidates to use a common leaflet and save us, the taxpayers, €10 million.

Unfortunately, the other candidates did not think this made good economic sense, so now the individual leaflets have started to come in the door and as I drive through Cork there are posters hanging off poles and I wonder is everyone else as mad as me when I realise that we could have put the €10m towards badly needed services.

Driving through Wilton Road in Cork, Mary Davis is on every pole. If the poster candidates spend their own and our money so easily on the campaign, just think of the waste if they got to be President, and remember who funds the President.

Well done, Sean Gallagher, for thinking outside the box.
