Endless Enda is back and normal service has been resumed. Yesterday, it was a sod-turning ceremony for a new swimming pool on one of his 'Mayo Mondays' and today he is off to Washington to plant a tree.
The Taoiseach will be missing the first real Dáil sitting since the General Election on February 26 and he may well be absent when his new Government loses a vote to the Opposition tomorrow night.
But there will be plenty more occasions for fighting with Micheál Martin and the left-wing of Irish politics who now occupy the 'know it all' benches in Leinster House, because it appears that Enda Kenny is here to stay.
