Brendan O'Connor: Enda the Eagle lays down law
WHATEVER our worries about Europe, as long as we have Enda Kenny out there fighting our corner, we just know everything will be OK. Witness Enda heading out for the summit last week.
Before he went, there was the usual fighting talk. Enda was going to be giving it tough to Europe about Ireland's debt burden and the money we borrowed at extortionate rates to bail out the banks.
So while France and Germany were laying down the law at the summit, and nearly everyone else was going along because they had no choice, Enda was going to put it up to them, like the Skibbereen Eagle keeping an eye on the Tsar of Russia's expansionist tendencies.
