What the Higgins presidency is really for
The President is taking a stand against the tide of market ideology
In last week’s Sunday Business Post, Elaine Byrne argued that two former Presidents, Mary Robinson and Mary McAleese, could be identified with particular themes such as “broadening the office of the President” and “building bridges” respectively. While acknowledging the undoubted popularity of President Michael D Higgins, she finds it more difficult to interpret the key theme or themes he espouses. This is a pity and is hard to understand.
