Turn on the TV or radio or open a newspaper and there she is - Green Senator and Euro candidate Deirdre de Burca - either giving us her tuppence worth on national issues or growing out of the shoulders of Green Party Ministers.
The brave de Burca this week, however, has set her sights firmly on her political nemesis - Sinn Fein’s Mary Lou McDonald.
Putting it simply, Deirdre wants to reclaim the seat taken from the Green Party by Sinn Fein in 2004 - and she is making it no secret as to who the victim will be.
Now while the Lady Deirdre could never be accused of entering into a cat fight with another woman, she is becoming more and more vocal in her opposition to everything Mary Lou does.
Just this week she attacked Mary Lou over Sinn Fein’s anti-Lisbon stance - a curious attack given that the Green Party didn’t even have a mandate from its members to call for a Yes vote.
Have the Green Party members changed their stance on Lisbon 2 or is Senator de Burca being just a tad previous?
“Ah, come on, what’s Star backwards?”
