HE WOWED THE crowds when he came here in 2011 – supping pints with the Taoiseach, hanging out with his cousin Henry ‘the 8th’ Healy – so much that we named a motorway plaza after him.

Councillors were unable to come to an agreement over the Lord Mayor of Dublin Brendan Carr’s proposal at the meeting last night, and the proposal will instead be held in September.
