 Sean T. O'Kelly
However O'Kelly was not made governor-general, the post instead going to former Fianna Fil TD Domhnall Ua Buachalla.
In 1938, again O'Kelly's position in cabinet became a focus for speculation, as rumours swept Leinster House (the seat of Parliament) that deV intended making O'Kelly the Fianna Fil choice to become president of Ireland, the office which had replaced the governor-generalship in the new Irish constitution, Bunreacht na hireann.
The talkative, tactless, fanatically religious whiskey-drinking O'Kelly matched the bill, perhaps through indiscretions rather than deliberate actions.

 Brian Lenihan
In January 1990 Government Press Officer P.J. Mara let it be known to the Irish media that Brian Lenihan was considering seeking the Fianna Fil nomination to become the party candidate for the Irish presidential election, which was due in November that year.
Brian Lenihan (17 November 1930 - 1 November 1995) was a senior Irish Fianna Fil politician, Tnaiste of the Republic of Ireland (1987-1990) and a defeated candidate for the office of President of Ireland.
In September 1990 The Irish Times carried a series of articles on the presidency, one of whom mentioned in passing the role of Lenihan, Sylvester Barrett and Charles Haughey in making the controversial phonecalls to ras an Uachtarin, the Irish presidential residence, to pressurise the President.

 Albert Reynolds
He became a member of the so-called "gang of five" with Jackie Fahey, Mark Killilea, Tom McEllistrim, Jr and Sen Doherty which aligned itself to Charles Haughey and supported him in the subsequent Fianna Fil leadership election, 1979.
In that year pressure was mounting on the Taoiseach and Fianna Fáil leader Jack Lynch to step down.
Reynolds's affable personality helped him to coax a number of backbenchers into supporting Haughey, who went on to beat George Colley in the leadership struggle and become Taoiseach.

 ire
The change of name to ire from the Irish Free State under the Fianna Fil party government (1932-48) of Eamon de Valera followed his government's enactment of an entirely new constitution, called Bunreacht na hireann by plebiscite in 1937.
Speaking in Seanad ireann Costello told senators that as a matter of law, the King was indeed 'King of Ireland' and Irish head of state and the President of Ireland was in effect no more than first citizen and a local notable, until the new law came into force.
Among the new features of that new constitution were a President of Ireland, a renamed prime minister called taoiseach, a new senate called Seanad ireann, and a more Roman Catholic tone to the document which included a reference to the "special position of the Roman Catholic church" (since repealed).

 The Daily Times
Fianna Fil's Martin Mansergh suggested recently in The Irish Times that the latest UN assembly vote on Iraq and the June 28th "hand-over" of "sovereignty" means there is now no reason to protest about Iraq or Shannon.
None were found but the US occupation succeeded where Bin Laden failed in bringing al-Qaeda and the tactic of suicide bombing to Iraq.

Roscommon Fianna Fil are set to be first off the blocks in selecting a candidate for the next General Election when the partys conventions for the new Roscommon/South Leitrim constituency takes place in Carrick-on-Shannon on Thursday night.
In the northern end of the constituency sitting Leitrim TD John Ellis goes unopposed for the South Leitrim nomination.
And with one sitting TD in Roscommon - Deputy Michael Finneran - and only one candidate from the county to go forward from the convention it would appear a straightforward choice for delegates.

Though not himself political (he worked as a doctor and County Coroner) he agreed under pressure from Clare's senior Fianna Fil TD, party leader and former taoiseach, Eamon de Valera, to become his running mate in the 1951 Irish general election.
Irish and British state papers are generally released after a delay of thirty years with the exception of papers that are deemed to 'damage the country's image or foreign relations' if they were to be released.
Lemass brought in a new generation of politicians to government; Jack Lynch (who actually begun his ministerial career in the last de Valera governments of the 1950s), Brian Lenihan, Donagh O'Malley, Charles J. Haughey, Neil Blaney etc. Key among them was Paddy Hillery (as he was generally called).
