Dukes Down on the Farm

A life in politics can be a busy one but a life after politics can be very hectic.

Take former Fine Gael leader Alan Dukes - he has hardly had time to rest on his laurels since leaving politics.

He retired from politics in 2002 after losing his seat and was subsequently appointed Director General of the Institute of International and European Affairs.

In December 2008, Finance Minister Brian Lenihan appointed him as a public interest director on the board of Anglo Irish Bank - so her certainly has had his hands full with that.

And the latest string to his bow? He is now a judge on the TG4 farming entertainment competition Feirm Factor.

Just who knew Alan was such a multi-tasker!
