'EVERYONE in a circle around Enda." That was the instruction to Fine Gael's 100-plus general election hopefuls in Dublin's Mansion House as the party continued to promote its under-fire leader yesterday.

The female contingent, of which there are just 14, were most obedient, squashing in close to their leader, with Dun Laoghaire candidate Mary Mitchell O'Connor even managing to grab hold of him with her well-manicured black nails.

The family photo was taken from a cherrypicker that took the photographers high into the air and gave them a few jolts on the way down to the ground.
