Pinkredible -- peace and love break out in Leinster House

WHEN you see Big Phil Hogan, Leinster House's version of the Big Friendly Giant, lurking on the plinth rocking a pink tie you know there's something strange afoot in the corridors of power.
But the Environment Minister wasn't alone in getting (briefly) in touch with his inner goddess yesterday -- at 1pm the plinth was packed with 40 shades of pink. It was a riot of cerise, peach, plum, fuchsia, rose, blush and coral, sported on dresses, skirts, men's shirts and ties.
And in the middle of this panoply of pink were Ming Flanagan and Mary Mitchell O'Connor.
