I note that the call for the greatest Irishman has been dominated with 1 the dead, in decided preference to the living, and 2 figures from the south, with the odd crossover like Terry Whittaker. There is nothing wrong with that, but to concentrate minds I’m calling for nominations specific to Northern Ireland. Again, one each: living and all time. We’ll judge on Friday whether we run two competitions or one.
