If we decide to snub The Donald, he might not be that perturbed

As if Enda Kenny doesn't have enough problems, he has now got himself into a bit of a pickle over Donald Trump.

Only a few days ago in the Dáil he took some pot-shots at possibly the most divisive politician in American history. He also clearly signalled Hillary Clinton is his preferred choice to be the next US President. If the Taoiseach has made the wrong call, he will certainly have to bring an extra-large bowl of shamrock to the White House come St Patrick's Day to try and make amends.

Meanwhile, it has emerged that Trump intends to pop over and visit us later this month - and do a bit of a check-up on his golf course in Doonbeg, Co Clare. We don't know if the Trump campaign centre is monitoring comments by the Fine Gael leader and sundry other Irish politicians who have been firing verbal exocets in his direction, but stranger things have happened.
