    So does this mean that Enda is heading back to his teaching post which he has held open for himself while he’s been a politician for over 40 years?

      He’ll just fade like the pages of an old manuscript.
      He was a good Enda Kenny, an average Politician but a poor Taoiseach.

          Tis midnight now. We shall raise a toast with actual toast to de End a’ Kenny.
          I like marmalade with peels on mine.
          Coveney will be next in line to mislead us not into trepidations.
          He will be the Euro Taoiseach needed to surround the Brits after the Bonkersly Brilliant Berserking Battle of Brexit.
          Whatever happens will have to happen for the future sure is tense.

      I’d say Finola would love the Aras meself

      wouldn’t be surprised if he looks for the spot
      it’s not like the pair of them are going to eff off around the world travelling on all his pensions ffs

      he’ll have to fight off a few to get on the Blueshurt ticket mind

            …Fergus Finlay can still barely disguise his rage that squee got the labour backing before him…

      Oh no. I just checked it out online. God, I loved his voice. I saw him in the Olympia a few years ago.

          Superunknown was the soundtrack to the summer of 94 for me. LA, baby!

            Me and my pals were the worst music snobs back then. We dismissed Soundgarden because they supported Guns n Roses and were, like, major sellouts like.

            Then we saw them in 94 at Reading and we gave in. Amazing stuff.

            Probably one of my favourite songs is him having a sing-off with Eddie Vedder on the Temple of the Dog album: Hunger Strike.

            Gas, isn’t it? Music notions.

    Ah, it’s only after 9 am and the whinging lefties are already out in force sticking the knife into Coveney and doing Fianna Fails job for them…

      Seriously, why not just make your merry way to the journal, where the platitudes for Kenny flow freely.

      Instead of bitching at the comments on a left-leaning news site.

      hang on a sec there
      the FFers are sticking it to Coveney because Mickie is in the same constituency

      Mickie is afraid of his own botty
      and is getting his lackies to do his durty work
      not only that

      the two Ffú(ppers there in Cork South Central are bricking it
      ’cause the Shinner
      Donie Ó Laoghaire
      might well top the poll there next time out

      1. LW

        Is Donie not traditionally short for Donal? Given his name is Donncha, would Dinny not have made more sense?

        1. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

          Dinny from Donncha? Everyone’s called Donie in Cork. Even me, and my name’s Andyourp.

    Oliver Callans piece in the Irish Times sums up my feelings on Enda Kenny. A great piece of journalism not pandering to those shedding crocodile tears yesterday or the spin doctors.

    “The truth is he had a majority so large he could have achieved anything, but chose to squander a chance that may not fall into the hands of one person quite so spectacularly ever again. “

    1. Cian

      Yes, I’d agree with some of what Callan said – but he completely ignored the fact that the country was totally banjaxed.

      We needed to borrow €27,000,000,000 in 2011, €25,000,000,000 in 2012, and €36,000,000,000 in 2013 to keep the country running – the vast majority of this money was to pay for Pensions, HSE and Social Welfare.

      1. mildred st. meadowlark

        How do you know that it went on pensions/social welfare etc?

        That’s a real question, not me jumping down your throat.

        1. Biggins

          massive tax deficit, we were spending a lot more than we were taking in and only a small portion of that went to bondholders , we were borrowing to keep the lights on and to keep food in peoples bellies. people forget that and what would have happened if we didn’t borrow.

    2. Topsy

      Oliver Callan hit the nail on the head. In essence Kenny was a weasel & gutless politician.
