The promises and the reality after Enda's first 100 days
Jerome Reilly looks at some of the pledges made by Fine Gael and Labour before the election -- and at what has been delivered
When Brian Cowen completed his first 100 days as Taoiseach, then Opposition leader Enda Kenny launched a blistering attack on his stewardship.
