Tragedy and drama at Golden Island

Anne Harris

The confrontation at Golden Island was a play within a play. If Enda Kenny could see himself on stage he might change the part he plays, says Anne Harris

WE all have moments in which we are tragic heroes in our own sub-plot. That moment on which we look back and wish we could change everything -- in particular our own responses. Most of us in this austerity, have many such moments.

Enda Kenny does not give much sign of reflectiveness -- perhaps it's his personality, perhaps he thinks he will always glow in the chiaroscuro light of his soft media coverage. But polls show Fine Gael has already begun the slow fade and when that inevitability happens one specific incident will shine out of the darkness to mock those who thought they were mighty. Let us call it Drama at Golden Island.
