Kicking off a thread for interesting or witty or profound quotes people stumble upon.

This one seems rather apt for AAM.

From today's Dail committee meeting with Sport Ireland's John Treacy...
Mr Treacy was asked repeatedly if he had confidence in the FAI board, and dodged the question a number of times, before being told: “It’s a yes or no question.”
He replied: “Well, I’m not saying yes.”

Have to remember that one...

The question is why did Treacy have to be repeatedly asked?

(Of course, if there were more (any?) women on the Board, these problems wouldn't have arisen!! Opinion Piece at any Irish media outlet)

I don't think a female PM would have been stupid enough to have the referendum in the first place.
