McDowell: Republic’s Politician of the Year

As if to show the breadth of its political purview, Magill not only named the controversial Minister of Justice Michael McDowell as ‘Politician of the Year’, it also named Sinn Fein’s European hopeful, Pearse Doherty as ‘One to watch’. Morning Ireland picked up a fair bit of after show banter (sound file).
