“Dear President Michael D,
It’s a great pleasure for me to be able to offer you my very best wishes and congratulations on reaching your 80th birthday. You’re a little more than a year ahead of me!
Your honesty and your concern for the ‘plain people of Ireland’ shines through every time you make a public appearance and may this ever be.
Please keep going!
With love and respect,
– Andy Irvine”
