Slugger poll features on Talkback…

Fionnuala Meredith features on Talkback today and notes that our Slugger Poll of the greatest Ulster men and women contains no women! I get a right of reply, and I hope that some of you who voted will give them a ring to let them know why the name of a great Ulster woman didn’t occur to you. And may be why you didn’t bother.

Adds: that’s if they have time. IMC looks like it’s where it’s at today…

  • How about Ruth Kelly?!!!
    As the poll’s not intended to be taken too seriously may I venture a few other suggestion – Mary Peters, Enya Brennan (or her sister Maire), Kate Hoey, Gloria Hunniford, Philomena Begley… I suppose the name of a certain president of Ireland and a Blue Peter presenter may also spring to mind, but not sure if they deserve the accolade! And as Katie Melua went to school in Belfast does she count?

  • TAFKABO

    May McFetteridge gets my vote.

  • kev

    My Mammy

  • Tochais Síoraí

    What about Daniel O Donnell?

  • Keith M

    Dana and Ruby Murray surely deserve places.

  • Orlaith from Big Brother.

    Havent we been through all of this, and my complaint about the lack of female representation was duly noted!

    Male domination on slugger continues……

  • R. R. Gillespie

    Henry Joy McCracken is rightly featured. What about his sister: Mary Ann McCracken, founder of the Belfast Charitable Society (Clifton House) and indefatigable worker for the poor and underprivileged
