Is Alan Shatter Enda Kenny's Banquo - the ghost who appears at the feast unseen to everybody but Macbeth?
It's probably a bit of a stretch to say the political apparition of the deposed Minister for Justice is haunting Kenny. But Shatter certainly is making life uncomfortable for him at a time when he should be basking in his return as Taoiseach.
Just as actors avoid saying the name Macbeth when in the theatre - for superstitious reasons, they call it "the Scottish play" - Fine Gael ministers don't like talking about Alan. They just wish he'd go away.
