Many have nicknamed the new Irish President ‘The Hobbit’ because of his small stature. This is unfortunate and lacks charity but also because the society of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings is a Distributist and Christian society. A credible economic alternative to the failures of Left and Right. A Society of the guilds which is a real tool for social regeneration.

Many regarded this election as a waste of time and money, and many wrote this or other slogans on the ballot paper. The RTE website shows there were 18,676 ‘spoilt’ votes.

“Only you do not know us. For we have not spoken yet”
