He mightn't have got the result he wanted but Simon Coveney did get to have a good lunch in Hugo's on Merrion Row before he headed to the Mansion House around the corner to see Leo get the nod as leader of Fine Gael.

The previous leader of FG had been in Hugo's the day before. Maybe Enda Kenny left a secret note under the table for Simon?

Gina Murphy, the owner of Hugo's, is from Mayo; so there is a special bond with Enda, who allegedly calls her his "Ballina girl".)
