Good old Michael D.
(Michael D. Higgins is the President of Ireland).
And all this time i thought it was Paul :)
Typical politician I suppose.
I wonder if this sentence means the president calls the shots?
No. That could be something like "glaonn sé na hordaithe", or "glaonn sé na bearta".
What dialect is this? I did not hear any U sound in the Uachtaran??
So, in this case (and others like it?) is the definite article not needed? Is it because there cannot be other Presidents of Ireland?
