Michael Noonan must be nursing a sore head today. No, Noonan is not a big drinker so will have been able to resist the temptations of Cypriot hospitality out at the finance ministers' summit in Nicosia.
Nor will he have overindulged on his visits to Paris, Berlin and Rome en route to the Mediterranean island's capital.
Paeans of praise have been pouring on to poor Michael's head. Commissioner Olli Rehn and European president Herman van Rompuy have been going over the top in lauding our finance minister.
