Meath stalwart and scorer of the goal that Louth will never forget is having a hard first few weeks of it in his new career. He is up for election is Joe as Fianna Fail try to surpass the great Fine Gael Graham Geraghty campaign of 2007.
He is standing in the Ashbourne electoral area in Co Meath, a section of the county in which local resident and Dubs legend Charlie Redmond is probably better thought of than Meath's big Joe, but sure, you have to be in it..
Part of Joe's campaign has been of course the electoral poster, but someone has been making off with numerous copies of Big Joe's face and smile, he has had enough though, and wants them back.
Do you have them? do you know where they are? Could you draw up some replacements? get in touch in the comments below
