Eamon Gilmore looked a little nonplussed. It was only 11am on a Monday and here was a lassie doing all manner of pirouettes around him.

Nor was it the usual case of a woman running rings around a fellow: Emma O'Kane is a proper ballerina with the CoisCeim dance troupe.

Of course, the Tanaiste and Foreign Minister has become a bit of an accomplished hoofer himself these days since he embarked on a political pas de deux with Enda. The duo may not be on a level with Fonteyn and Nureyev (or Fred 'n' Ginger, even), but neither of them has managed to drop the other during the set pieces (yet).
