“Claire Byrne, you sassy queen!”

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.
