Having (finally) made his mind up on marriage equality, the Taoiseach has decided to walk among the people saying 'Yes'.
And he was in most cheerful form yesterday when he called into BeLongTo to chat.
Alas, Enda's mood darkened briefly when asked about TD Mattie McGrath's grumbling about his reluctance to engage in a live TV debate.
"I've debated this on doorsteps all over the country," he explained, adding that Mattie "has an opportunity to continue to ask inane questions in the Dáil looking for another bit of coverage."
"So keep at it, Mattie," he added with a touch of asperity.
That him told. But Mattie'll probably keep at it anyway.
Once upon a time, 'Taken' star Liam Neeson was a teacher.
But there was one classroom incident that could have been from a movie.
"This particular kid did not want to settle down, he wanted to disrupt the whole class. So I asked him to leave the classroom and stand outside," Neeson recalls.
"The next thing he pulled a knife on me. My reaction was to punch him, which I shouldn't have done but I felt threatened."
Now we can explain the quote: "Skills I have acquired over a very long career."
Press release headline of the day goes to the group 'Mothers and Fathers Matter': "Okay, you all want to talk about this poster thing, apparently. Here's our response."
