Snippet Contents:

On behalf of the Rural Independent Group, I am very glad to remember the great Donal Creed, who passed away on 23 November 2017. It is fair to mention two Ps when talking about Donal, namely, potatoes and politics. I do not know which he would have put in the higher category but everybody who knew of him knew of his love for farming and for vegetables and the great pride he had in potatoes. He was competitive with other family members and other neighbours on both sides of the border when it came to producing what he classified as the best potatoes that any farmer could grow. It is important to remember that. It is always nice to see people who are grounded and down to earth in politics. Donal certainly was, because he had great interest in what came out of the earth.
On a light-hearted note, every person who wins the lotto can always say, when banking the money, that if it was not for Donal Creed he or she might not have won the money at all. On a day when someone has received €175 million in the EuroMillions lottery, it should be remembered that there was a man here in Ireland who set up our own lottery. Charitable organisations have gained much from that. He was politically very astute and ahead of his time. It is nice to remember that.
On a local note, I would like to remember a very sad event for the people of Ireland, particularly those in Cork and Kerry.
