Shane Ross: CIE could constipate an actuary

AS I arrive at RTE's hospitality room for the Frontline programme, there are only two people present. Pat Kenny offers the usual polite greeting while there is a freeze from the other man in the room. His face, or the small part of it that the world ever sees, looks familiar.
Pat's companion bears a bushy beard. I recognise it. It has appeared in this column more than any other beard on God's earth.
I blink and grasp the hand of Siptu boss Jack O'Connor, muttering gratefully that "we have never met".
