Mary Lou McDonald, Micheal Martin, and Stephen Donnelly, could have learned a thing or two from stand-in Irish soccer manager Noel King over the past few days.

Noel was, as probably the whole country now knows, in the wars with Eamon Dunphy, and some sundry RTE luminaries over his performance in the most thankless job in Irish sport.

In passing, it should be said Eamon has the first part of his autobiography to sell so there's no such thing as bad publicity for our controversialist par excellence. Also, in passing, it should be acknowledged his book 'My Rocky Road' is a rollicking good read.
