Personally, I now have that "Charlie's Song" playing in my head. "Arise and follow Charlie" now sounds like a zombie movie gone wrong.

The gentleman became mistrust personified. Tribunals may stall around this death. The secrets hidden away will still haunt a few people, Irish politics is going to get very interesting as the man juggled bombshells... Let's see what drops.
