a cara....the world has lost a great statesman...and political giant.....dr. garret fitzgerald....who had political savvy as an inherrent quality...was a visionary.....his father ...a founding member of cumann na gael.....groomed garret in the ethos that led to our getting nationhood......he was courted in his college days ...by that wily fox ...charlie...ha..ughhey...to join fianna fail...but his devotion lay with fine gael....his political life was a type of deja vieu.....in that he and his father both held the same portfolios....minister of foreign affairs.....indeed in this job his political savvy came to the fore.....his battles with his leader at the time....liam cosgrove ...were well documented.....earlier he helped aer lingus become one of the great airlines....he led fine gael out of the doldrums some years ago......and our present taoiseach was one of his prodigies.......as our country is draped in sorrow.....it is ..yet...illumined by hope.....
