(edited title as i dont think good or bad wer the right phrases for what i wanted to find out from the thread - too simplistic and needs very little thought
- hope this is ok ???)
as Mary McAleese sets about packing her bags and leaving aras an uachtarain for greener pastures (if thats possible ) - what are your reflections on her 14 in office. She presided over this country in the peak years of the celtic tiger and the bleak years of our present recession.
while many think that its an office that should be removed - do you think that she did use the office to promote Ireland in a positive light abroad?
were there are aspects of her presidency that you did not agree with ?
