  1. Good man Logue!!!
    Another UCD man in the top SU job in the country…
    No better man for the job..
    Another KBC’er !!

    Well done Gary Redmond on a great tenure as president!
    USI is stronger because of you!

  2. By “KBC’er” Ken means Logue is in Fianna Fail.

    Did anyone challenge him on his membership of the fact that his party, while in government, brought the Reg Fee to 1500euro?
