The once-close relationship between Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Lucinda Creighton appears damaged beyond repair

There is now a real chance that Lucinda Creighton's once glittering political career could be heading for the scrapheap – such is the level of fear and loathing between herself and Enda Kenny.

The chasm between both sides has surreptitiously widened in recent days following her appearance on 'The Late Late Show', coupled with comments from the Fine Gael leader. Lucinda made it clear she is in no mood for atonement, and Enda was equally hardline on the possibility of mercy being shown to his abortion- bill dissidents.

Of course, it cannot be forgotten, the backdrop to this particular divide is that Lucinda was one of the leading lights when 'new' Fine Gael tried to shaft Enda, both as party leader and as spearhead of the 'old' brigade in the party.
