“A Message of Support from Paul McGrath” -Victor Boyhan- Independent- Dun Laoghaire February 13, 2011

From the 2011 General Election an election leaflet from Independent candidate (and former PD councillor) Councillor Victor Boyhan running in Dun Laoghaire.
Interestingly, a page of it is taken up with a message of support from Paul McGrath. McGrath and Boyhan spent many years together in the “Birds Nest” home on York Road in Dun Laoghaire and later down in Monkstown.
In McGraths acclaimed book “Back from the Brink” Victor Boyhan gets a number of mentions. Including “…he became one of the most outspoken voices in ensuring that Smyly Trust Homes would be covered under the State Redress Scheme, investigating the abuse of children.“

  1. What does Paul McGrath know about politics or government any more than the next man? Just because he was a good footballer we’re supposed to be convinced he’s also good at everything else as well? I don’t think so.
    Try someone else for heaven’s sake; someone who knows something about public administration. Mind you, Irish voters being the eejits they are they’ll probably fall for this crap!
    But wait…. I see Victor too is a has-been footballer! How, in God’s name does that qualify him to be a TD? Whatever next? Mickey Mouse for president?
