CREDIT where it is due, the Reform Alliance had a good day at the RDS in Dublin on Saturday. But we remain as wise as ever about whether we are going to see a new political party emerge, what sort of party it might be, and what kind of support could it get.

Lucinda Creighton and her colleagues would have been panned if they had not pulled in a crowd. But in fact they are entitled to say they had an attendance of about 1,500 people.

The hall holds in excess of 1,000 people and it was solidly full throughout the day.
