Michael D Higgins intelligent, cute and well mannered and has a smile that would melt even the most stubborn icebergs. He grew up in humble circumstances, being separated from the rest of his family until he was 19.
Michael D Higgins was born in Limerick in 1941 but, aged five, he was sent to live with his unmarried uncle and aunt’s small farm in Clare. He grew up there alongside his younger brother with the “delights and simplicities of country living”, milking cows and sowing turnips.
He is so humble that he is literally hugging everyone whenever he could. There are many great stories and facts to tell about Higgins that why he is a great president that Ireland could have.
In 2011, just after assuming office, President Higgins wrote to the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform and asked for 23.5% pay cut. He asked for it. And he got it, too.
Michael D Higgins was also a published poet and wrote a number of volumes of poetry. One of his works was called The Ass, which was about a donkey. One stanza reads: “I recall the soft velvet of his ears, as he bent in habit for the winkers, the resignation too of his taking the bit past the surrender of his yellow teeth.”
The internet is showing their love for this adorable President. People are sharing examples of why he is so loved by the Irish people and also by other people in the world, and we wish that all presidents were so happy and positive.
