He also discusses rumours spread about him: “Some kind friend would like to see me out of public life or even dead and forgotten. That would suit them best … when it would be more easy for me to stay on a hill side in Tipp … The other report they speak about Breen don’t live in Tipp … why vote for him. Well I was in Tipp whenever I was needed …”.
