Shane Ross: When Enda met Angela

BRUSSELS, last Monday. A meeting, on the margins of the summit, between German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Taoiseach Enda Kenny.

Angela Merkel: "Good morning, Mr Kelly. Perhaps when you have stopped horsing around with Nicolas for the cameras you might spare me a moment to give you your instructions? And no photo-ops today, please. I posed for a picture with you last year -- which won you the general election."

Enda: "Yes, Chancellor. Sorry, Chancellor."
