IT SEEMS apt that the letters 'K' and 'L' sit side by side in the alphabet – because Kenny has gone for loyalists in this re-shuffle of his second team.

Or, put another way, it was also a message to those deemed less than loyal. Paudie Coffey of Waterford is in – his constituency colleague, John Deasy, remains very much outside.

The name of sometimes dissident Eoghan Murphy was mentioned here and there during the week. It was not mentioned by Enda Kenny yesterday.
