McKee is a sophisticated intelligent lawyer who will make his mark in the party and on Irish politics yet.
COUNCILLORS MATT DORAN & G.I. JOE GLAD TO SEE THE BACK OF CLLR. McKEE.
A couple of Fianna Fail councillors are mightily relieved with the departure of Councillor Patrick McKee to an appointment in Dublin.
They are headed by the FF whip on the Council, Cllr. Matt Doran, who mightily resisted McKee’s readmission into Fianna Fail last year.
At that time a FF headquarters had to send a team to Kilkenny to confront Doran and some other local Fianna Failers who were opposed to McKee’s re-admission to the party on the grounds that he is a publicly declared gay man and they did not want him back on those grounds.
Cllr. Doran was supported by religious fanatic Councillor “G.I.” Joe Malone, a real Catholic backwoodsman who actually leads pilgrimages to Medjugorje.
It is amazing the bigotry and public acts of hatred that Councillors Doran and Malone got away with in relation to Cllr. McKee.
Malone even assaulted McKee when they ran into one another on the canvass trail back in the local election campaign of 2014.
Doran is another Catholic backwoodsman from Kilmoganny. On occasion they got up out of their seats and walked away in the Council chamber when McKee approached to sit down beside them.
Patrick McKee is already out on the canvas helping party candidates in Dublin.
Certainly he must be solidly relieved after finishing with the Troglodytes he has left behind him in Kilkenny in the forms of Councillors Doran and Malone.
