Sinead Cusack

I was talking to someone last night who told me that Sinead Cusack had been out campaigning with Richard Boyd Barrett in Dun Laoghaire. Today the Irish Independent says that Cusack had her first public meeting with Boyd Barrett since she gave birth to him. Good for both of them.

I don't think this makes any difference regarding the Sunday Independent's decision to publish the fact that Boyd Barrett was Cusack's son without her say so.

I've also heard that Boyd Barrett may very well win a seat in Dun Laoghaire. It must be great to be an independently wealthy socialist who doesn't need to work so that you can be forever out protesting/campaigning. (The tip came from people who are not political people, just voters in the constituency. I'm curious to see if they're right.)
