The Irish Presidential race is entertaining albeit for all the wrong reasons;
Idndependent presidential candidate David Norris received a disability payment for 16 years while out of work as a Trinity College lecturer — even though he was a “full-time” senator for the entire period. Mr Norris confirmed to the Irish Independent last night he received the payment, but could not specify exactly how much it was worth. He also refused to say what his disability is. He said the payment was around a quarter of his annual salary, but said he “wasn’t getting anything like they get now”.
So, this Senator felt obliged to accept disability benefit even though no one knows what his disability was? He has also refused to discuss this mysterious disability.
Ireland’s finest? Here is is in action….he’s the one in the suit on the back of the bike..
