Everyone is having their few words about Enda, so why not me? Much of it has been an exercise of him being damned with faint praise, which always puts me off the praiser.

We hear about the Jack The Lad out until the small hours which seems to me incompatible with the spring in his step any time I saw him around Kildare Street. He walked at a slow jog. Maybe he was always late but he looked like he was going somewhere.

I remember the shots of him arriving at RTE for the leaders' debate before the 2007 election with his jacket thrown over his shoulder looking about 30 years younger than Bertie. He didn't win that election. He was lucky.
