Enda missed the bride, but then he's already pledged his troth to Joan

Everybody loves a bride - and no one more than Enda Kenny on an 'Angela Ashes' sort of day in Co Limerick. One can only imagine the total chagrin/utter delight of the groom, Eoin Cuddihy, when he discovered that the Fine Gael think-in was taking place at the same time and in the same venue - the delightful Dunraven Arms Hotel in Adare - as his wedding reception.

For Eoin, you see, works in the Department of the Taoiseach. So effectively his boss was turning up at his wedding. Still, at least it spared the bride, local woman Kate Donegan, from having to hunt out 'something blue' to sport, in keeping with tradition.

And so yesterday as the rain fell endlessly, the red carpet was rolled out in anticipation of the arrival of the couple and - quelle surprise - the Taoiseach was spotted hovering in the vicinity of it.
