1I love our shared island, our shared Ireland and its core decency. I love it for its imagination and its celebration of the endless possibilities for our people.
2Ireland has made its choice for the future and it has chosen the version of Irishness it will build. I know, and I will work with head and heart to be part of it with all of you in creating that future one in which all of us can be part of and part of us too.
3The connection has been lost between the country's direction, especially with regard to the way in which the economy has been run, and the citizen.
4I will be a President for all the people, whether they voted for me or not, whether they are young or old and particularly for the Irish abroad. I'm looking forward to it and I think it will be exciting and wonderful.
5Making an Irishness to be proud of in a real Republic. It is the vision of a real Republic where life and language, where ideals and experience have the ring of authenticity which we need now as we go forward.
6The necessary transformation of which I speak and of which my presidency will be a part is built on turning creative possibilities into live realities for all our people.
7I want to say to all of you that when I take my oath of office I will do my absolute best to use all of my abilities for all of the people of Ireland.
8I am delighted to be back home in Galway, the place I first came to as a 19-year-old in 1960. It's here where my heart is and will forever be.
9The reconnection of society, economy and ethics is a project we cannot postpone.
10Now it is time to turn to an older wisdom that, while respecting material comfort and security as a basic right of all, also recognises that many of the most valuable things in life cannot be measured.
11You are not speaking for yourself, but for Ireland.
12I am very glad as well that it is a presidency built on a campaign that emphasized ideas. I hope it will be a presidency that will enable everybody to be part of and proud of.
13The mandate I have received and for which I will speak with heart and head to implement over the next seven years had its four pillars - an inclusive citizenship, equality and participation and respect in a creative society creating an excellence in everything we Irish do.
14I am delighted with the strong vote I have received. My message of positive leadership, patriotism and commitment clearly was resonating with tens of thousands of ordinary Irish people.
15Through the inspiration of Vaclav's words, the courage of his dissidence and the integrity of his leadership, Czechoslovakia successfully transitioned from an authoritarian state to a free democracy at the heart of Europe.
16The presidency is an independent office and the Irish people whom I appreciate so much and I take with such responsibility have given a very clear mandate on a very clear set of ideas to me, as the ninth president.
17While the wider global environment is worrying, we are seeing some positive results in our economic affairs.
18I have encountered on this long road an enthusiasm for an Irishness which will be built on recognising again those sources from which spring the best of our reason and curiosity.
19Every age, after all, must have its own aisling and dream of a better, kinder, happier, shared world.
20I'm happy with the vote and the support. I'm very glad that it is so decisive. It will enable me to be a president for all of the people.
21I think the important thing now is to have a celebration and then with determination move into our common, shared, different future.
22We need to discuss the basis of a new form of trust built on a meaningful form of citizenship appropriate for a republic.
23I hope that at the end of the seven years, people will say that I have been of some inspirational value to them at home in terms of inclusiveness and abroad, I look forward to representing Ireland.
24I want to say a very sincere thank you for this welcome home - it is a wonderful welcome home. It is the place to where I return and where I will always return because it is of Galway that I am.
