Enda Kenny isn't happy with the Irish media. Apparently those of us who travelled to the United States to cover his swansong didn't do him justice.

Reporting that it was a success wasn't enough, Mr Kenny wanted the people at home to know it was a 'tremendous triumph'.

It seems that a bit of Twitter fame has gone to his head and he has started to believe his own hype.
