Twenty-year-old Lisa McEvoy yesterday shadowed and assisted Taoiseach Enda Kenny as he ran the country.

The Crumlin native is in her second year of rehabilitative training at Green Gables Training Centre in Tallaght, and was one of the 650 people participating in the seventh annual 'Job Shadow Day' initiative yesterday.

The Dublin woman proved that she was more than up to the task as she worked with the Taoiseach in his office in Leinster House.

The young woman is said to have enjoyed her time at the helm, and was even invited to sign the distinguished visitors' guest book.
