Fiach Kelly: Early night for Gilmore and his gang of party poopers
YOU had to feel for them, really. Brian Cowen's tribulations put a slight downer on Labour's own think-in socialising. Not much singing, definitely no impersonations -- just dinner and a few drinks.
And Eamon Gilmore was on his best behaviour.
We can confidently report he was tucked up in bed around eleven o'clock on Wednesday night after a few glasses of wine, and was up early to brief himself before his own 'Morning Ireland' interview yesterday.
