Something about Mary, first Presidential candidate in Belfast (video added)

Residents of Northern Ireland may not have vote as of right, but I suspect there are more than a few Irish denizens of Belfast who’ll be sneaking back to the Donegal ranch or running down to the ma’s in Dublin to cast their unofficial ex pat vote. Anyhoo, Mary Davis is the first candidate to platform in Belfast…

She’ll be at the Crescent Arts Centre this evening between 6 and 7:30pm…

Update: I hope he’ll go on serving as Deputy First Minister for years to come
