    This story calls for a tasteful Enda in repose shot. Think there was one where he fell asleep at a conference a few months back.
    Looks like an only very slightly edited press release.

    Taoiseach Enda Kenny has admitted he found parts of Ireland's European Union presidency mentally draining.

    Enda Acting The maggot. No photo unfortunately

    A short time later, he arrived in the members’ dining room. There was quite a crowd in for lunch and the members of the public who were there as guests of TDs and Senators were delighted to see the main man putting in an appearance

    They will have been puzzled though by Enda’s actions. As he walked in, he saw Lucinda sitting at a table.
    “You can go in there and make your speech now,” he said to her. (The Dáil sitting had adjourned for lunch.)
    Then he put on a big smile, did a very expansive double thumbs up in her direction and shouted: “Freedom of speech, baby! Freedom of speech!”

    Interesting how this photo illustrates the FG spin that Leo was out of line and that he was swiftly reined in by the boss. That's not how it appeared to Miriam Lord in Fota though.


    The Taoiseach was in control – flanked by Frances Fitzgerald (now leading the party’s general election committee) and Michael Noonan (exuding an air of steely competence) – and was setting out Fine Gael’s stall for the battle to come. Strategist Mark Mortell, who will be a key player in the party’s push for a second term, watched from the sidelines.There was an energy about it all and the sense that a meticulous plan was being pushed out to follow a well plotted course to the polls.
    Then, as the briefing was still happening, Varadkar strolled through the French windows and hung about quietly in the background. Then a couple of journalists detached themselves from the pack and went towards him. The word quickly spread. In a matter of minutes, Enda’s press conference was over. The pack had moved on.
    It felt like there were two centres of power at work in Fota. The Taoiseach and Varadkar, both exerting a gravitational pull with their presence. People, as would be expected, drawn towards the party leader, but also gravitating towards Leo too. Not that he deigned to notice.
