The Next Generation

The designated Tánaiste is Piers Donough Edward George McGillycuddy (born 17 April 1965 at Rowston Manor, Lincolin). Educated at Summerfields and Gordonstoun, Piers has worked much of his life in London and Marbella, Spain. He has travelled widely, sailed the Atlantic and runs a company.

Not surprisingly, the title has attracted the attention of comedians. Early in the BBC's history this led to a complaint from the then McGillicuddy which resulted in the Corporation's notorious 1949 Green Book, the bible on what not to do for Comedy producers, containing the stricture 'Do not mention the McGillicuddy of the Reeks or make jokes about his name'
