Madam President

NIUG is set to receive her archives, minus the reproductive rights hate mail she received in the 70s, which her husband destroyed.

She made a very good point about Ireland’s status in developing countries, how having the Great Famine in the cultural DNA helps the Irish empathize with those who are still suffering today.
