Local TD Declan Breathnach is a big fan of Beyonce.

While not many people would expect the Fianna Fáil deputy to be a fan of Mrs Jaz Z, the Knockbridge man has admitted to being a big fan of the ‘Crazy In Love’ singer.


A writer for decided to contact all 158 TDs to get their opinions on Beyonce, asking three questions:

  1. Do you like Beyoncé?
  2. If you answered YES, what is your favourite Beyoncé song?
  3. If you answered NO, why don’t you like Beyoncé?

Of the 39 who answered Deputy Breathnach gave one of the best replies, saying he sees a lot of himself in Beyonce’s music.

He said: “Like most people I’m a huge fan of queen B, to paraphrase Kanye she’s “one of the best of all time”. After a long day in the Dáil, putting my feet up and treating myself to some old school Destiny’s Child is one of my favourite ways to unwind. ”Survivor” would have to be my favourite song of hers, what an anthem! It almost describes the life of a politician “I’m not gon stop, I’m gon work harder, I’m a survivor”

None of the other Louth TDs responded with Gerry Adams, citing “time constraints”.

Clearly he’s more a Kelly Rowland fan!
