It was raining cats, dogs and every animal from aardvarks to zebras outside the RDS, while inside the building Micheál Martin was busily pouring equal amounts of cold water on even the scintilla of a suggestion that Fianna Fáil were flirting with the notion of doing the business with Sinn Féin after the coming general election.

Micheál, along with Mayo's Dara Calleary, were touring the National Crafts & Design Fair as a sort of warm-up canvass for the upcoming main event.

It may seem an odd choice to canvass for a party with nary a Dublin deputy, but the fair is both an Aladdin's Cave of gorgeous jewellery, food and Christmas gifts, and a treasure-trove of older rural folk on day trips to the capital - citizens who may well have voted for Fianna Fáil before they plummeted from favour.
