IT was a bit like Sports Day in one of the more huggy-wuggy sort of primary schools, where even the most inept participants in the three-legged race get to take home a medal so that nobody feels like a loser.

And it seems that it's not just sensitive kiddies who reap the benefits of such a morale-boosting manoeuvre, but also the much-reduced ranks of Fianna Fail deputies who are suffering from PMT (that's Post-Massacre Trauma obviously, as there isn't a female among their number to be afflicted with any other sort of PMT).

And so yesterday Muinteoir Micheal Martin doled out gold medals -- or frontbench positions -- to the 19 survivors of last month's electoral bloodbath.
