Lesson in laughter as Davis warns schoolgirls -- don't work too hard

SPECIAL Olympics chief Mary Davis went back to school yesterday where she raised a few laughs by telling pupils not to work too hard.

The independent presidential candidate was quizzed by schoolgirls at Loretto College in Foxrock about her biggest flaw.

"My greatest weakness is I work incredibly hard all the time," she replied to raucous laughter.

"Well, working hard can be a disadvantage as well because it's difficult to get a work/life balance..." As the laughter continued, Ms Davis joined in, asking: "You don't think so?"
