Irish Sunday Mirror|May 31, 2020
IVOR Callely said he is no longer “a Louis Copeland dummy” as he challenged the Irish Sunday Mirror for asking him about looking healthy yesterday.
We questioned him about his appearance because earlier this week he said he walks “with the aid of sticks” and can’t put on his shoes or socks properly.
Our photographer snapped the disgraced former politician strolling around Dublin without any crutches or walking aids – and without a care in the world.
He told us he is doing his best since incurring an injury when a tree fell on him while out cycling last August.
Mr Callely defended his healthy appearance as he last night told the Irish Sunday Mirror: “Not all disabilities are visible.”
And the 62-year-old said he does use walking sticks when he is on “long walks”.

The ex-con seemed sprightly in a sporty polo shirt and shorts as he visited his property in Killester in exclusive pictures captured by us.
