The Green Party leader Eamon Ryan does not know who Cher is.

Deputy Ryan is the first political leader to take part in Sean Moncreiff’s “Quick-Fire Quiz” on Newstalk.

The three-minute segment saw the Dublin Bay South TD entering the long-standing pineapple on pizza debate and opening up about his favourite side of the bed.

His shock Cher reveal came after he confirmed that while he does believe in life after death; he is less convinced on the concept of life after love – championed by Cher in her 1998 smash-hit.

He went on to reveal that he doesn’t know who the American singer and actress is

Other highlights included his wish for the superpower of ‘extra-sensory perception’ and his choice of “Christ in Jerusalem” as the one moment in history he wished he had witnessed.

The Green Party leader went on to answer questions from the children at O’Connells National School in Dublin City Centre.

How do keep the environment safe?

“You do that by thinking globally but acting locally,” he said.

“By bringing it back home so we look after our own home, street, neighbourhood, community. You have to think big in terms of restoring nature and tackling climate change – but actually, you bring it back home locally, that is the key to it.”

How do you make homeless people happy?

“You make homeless people happy by providing them a secure home,” he said.

“We all need shelter and like Peter McVerry said it is not just any old home it has to be places where people feel secure and comfortable.”

What will you change in Ireland?

“I think one of the biggest best changes, if I could make one, it would be making us less dominated by cars,” he said.

“I think it is better for the community; we are not stuck in traffic all the time, it is better for our health, it is more economic, it is efficient.

“If I could wave my wand and change one thing, I think that would make a bigger difference than anything else.”
