How does President Dana sound? Unlikely, I suggest, but not impossible.
There was speculation today that Dana is to mount a challenge for the Irish Presidency. Earlier this year the former MEP, Eurovision winner and All Ireland Talent Show judge said she was not interested in running, but didn’t categorically rule out the option. But today sources close to her are suggesting she has reconsidered following Senator David Norris’ dramatic withdrawal yesterday. In 1997, Dana received the nominations of five county councils and finished third in the contest – polling over 175,000 first preferences votes, or 14pc of the vote. She came third behind current president Mary McAleese and Mary Banotti
Has she a chance or is this merely more ego-tripping but our Rosemary?
