The Kenny Conundrum: after losing two battles, he's trying to salvage the war
Enda Kenny reaches pension age on April 24. It's also the 100th anniversary to the day of the start of the Rising on Easter Monday 1916. If he had not become a TD 40 years ago, he'd be retiring as a teacher and being presented with his carriage clock as colleagues reminisced on his career.
Instead, Kenny is showing no sign of being put out to pasture.
The Acting Taoiseach is now regarded as the biggest obstacle to Fine Gael leading the government.
