BARRING another overnight bombshell which detonates beyond any doubt the presidential aspirations of Michael D and Sean Gallagher (and hey, given the form of this campaign, it can't be ruled out entirely), Martin McGuinness won't be taking up residence in Aras an Uachtarain next month.

It was the happy satisfaction of a job well done.
