Donie Vaughan with Taoiseach Enda Kenny

Taoiseach Enda Kenny will stride into the White House on St Patrick’s Day for his meeting with Donald Trump wearing a pair of Donie Vaughan’s shoes.

“He gave me a call on Sunday night to see if I was around,” Donie told The Mayo News.. “You see the Taoiseach of the country’s name coming up on your phone and you are kinda wondering what this could be about! He was looking to come into me to buy a pair of shoes, it’s quite surreal….

Xavier Bettel

The recently hitched Luxembourg Prime Minister.

Not just eye candy.

This morning, outside the Centre Alima I saw Tom Martin, a Luxembourgish homeless friend.
“Hey American in Luxembourg,” he says to me. “You wanna hear a story?”
“Of course,” I say.
Here’s Tom’s story, in his own words:

“This morning, I’m walking around barefoot and I see the prime minister (Xavier Bettel) and he asks me, ‘Where are your shoes, Tom?’ He knows me by name because I’m a nice guy and I don’t cause trouble out here.
“So I tell him someone stole my shoes last night and he says, ‘Come on, let’s get you some shoes.’ So we go to H & M— the prime minister and me — and he buys me these shoes! (A pair of brand-new blue sneakers that had Tom grinning from ear to ear.)
