LAST NIGHT, THE country gathered around to watch the second Leaders Debate on RTÉ One and decided that there’s only one person fit to run this country: Claire Byrne.

Byrne was widely commended for moderating the seven-way debate with ease and aplomb, and keeping everything under control.

And now the whole country pretty much loves her.

She’s everyone’s new spirit animal.

Let’s be real: she made Alicia Florrick and Olivia Pope look like absolute wimps.

In fact, she deserves a headline show at Croke Park after that performance.

Forget Beyoncé. Who run the debate? Claire Byrne!

She demonstrated herself to be a master of burns. 

The name’s Burn. Claire Burn.

There were numerous analogies..


Even Rubberbandits were #TeamByrne.

The write-in campaign for Claire Byrne starts here.


Or at least Ceann Comhairle.

Let’s make it happen, Ireland.
