Joe Brolly tells Ryan Tubridy that he hasn't ruled out running for President
What a turn up for the books that would be.
Odds were slashed to 20/1 for Joe Brolly to be the next President of the Republican of Ireland this week, a fact that Ryan Tubridy brought up with the GAA pundit on this evening's Late Late Show.
At first, Brolly said he wasn't thinking of going for the position, before softening up and conceding that he'd consider it if he felt he could make a difference - which, in the business of politics, is quite an affirmative answer. In Ryan Tubridy's words "I don't think so, really is a yes."
Among Brolly's passions are cystic fibrosis treatment, and Ireland's need for a new transplant hospital. He also said that his son would like helicopter rides to the games in Croke Park. Eventually he concluded that "it's not something that would be beyond appeal."
Brolly for Prez? Don't forget us when you're on top, big man.
