Charlie's Epitaph

Today’s papers report that the headstone of Charlie Haughey has finally been inscribed with the epitaph which he chose for himself: “Be my epitaph writ on my country’s mind, he served his country and loved his kind”.

Unfortunately that epitaph is only writ on his headstone, what’s writ on his country’s mind is more likely to be something along the lines of “he served himself and he loved his wine”.
