Perhaps the same thing that makes him think he's a successful businessman makes him think he's going to get elected.

Liadh Ní Riada is the Sinn Fein candidate. She has been an MEP since 2014, has never run for Dail Eireann. Despite what the shinnerbots are saying, I can't see her challenging - she'll do well to get 20%. Maybe she is a fantastic speaker, but I just can't see it.

I doubt the Shinners expect her to win. It's more about increasing her profile and that of SF ahead of the next general election

So if these guys get their way the Presidency becomes like the Seanad with stronger Poetry/Cultural links (or without the latter if Sean Gallagher gets in)?

Liadh ni Carpetbagger who joined SF in 2012 ? Give me a break.

The whole process needs to be relentlessly made fun of. Someone should propose that because of the obesity crisis all the candidates should show their commitment to tackling this by collectively doing the assault course on Ireland's Fittest Family.

In fairness, Liadh Ní Riada came 2nd in South in 2014 Euro elections with 19.1% of vote
She won't win, but will do well
