Yesterday at Roscrea Taoiseach , Brian Cowen turned up to open the new leisure centre. I understand this visit was "on the quite" as he wanted to avoid the possibility of a protest situation.............Not often you see politicians avoid publicity.
Always on the ball , RISE got wind of this and managed to send out word at the last minute. Local supporters did well to turn out at such short notice...........it was a great morning as the fine weather has finally arrived to Ireland!!
It was a long wait but he turned up at last!
