He was "too tired" for the first time since its foundation in 1988 even to attend Feile an Phobail, the West Belfast Festival, what with: "Martin's death. Two elections. Two USA trips in July. Constituency duties in the Dail and in Louth. Talks or what passed for talks at Stormont. It all takes time and effort."
