A Card from Willie O’Dea, Minister for Defence, with details of his various clinics. The Fianna Fail TD for Limerick East has a lot of clinics.
I also thought that in light of his unexpected sacking as a Minister he must have been stuck with a pile of these cards reminding him and voters of his demotion.
