Kenny won't silence his critics and end the crisis with woolly interviews and high-fives

THE good news is Enda Kenny has finally sat down and done a major set-piece interview that attempts to get to the core of his beliefs and vision for the future.

The bad news is that he was talking – without any great insight, it has to be said – about God and religion.

Instead of a barnstorming rallying of the country after six months of drift in Government, we got an extremely woolly, and an often toe-curling, 38-minute interview with Gay Byrne on 'The Meaning of Life'.
