Everyone loves a good Irish comeback story
ENDA Kenny and Michael Noonan were flying the flag energetically as they blitzed dozens of chief executives as well as figures such as Bank of England governor Mark Carney and US treasury secretary Jack Lew.
The two men have a good tale to tell. Ireland has left the bailout without a hiccup, Moody's loves us again and Irish borrowing costs are lower than they were during the boom.
While Enda Kenny met CEOs, Michael Noonan hit the airwaves, talking to CNBC and Bloomberg before the two of them teamed up with Bono for yet more glad-handling at an IDA shindig.
