‘Back to life’ for An­thony

Bray People - - ELECTION 2011 -

BUSI­NESS­MAN AN­THONY FITZGER­ALD is philo­soph­i­cal about his over­whelm­ing de­feat say­ing he is ‘ happy to get his life back'.

‘ There were 24 can­di­dates on the bal­lot pa­per and no­body had heard of me be­fore (I put my name for­ward) but I am glad I did it. I am glad to have had the ex­pe­ri­ence at least once in my life but I don't see my­self re-en­ter­ing the fray again. I am slightly dis­il­lu­sioned by it but that is democ­racy in ac­tion.

‘I was pretty well re­ceived at the door but I was late to the game. I put my­self for­ward be­cause of my sheer in­dig­na­tion with the state of the coun­try.’
