So yesterday didn't bring about the end of the Government. But there's little doubt that we witnessed the beginning of the end of Enda Kenny's tenure as Taoiseach.

In his six years in the top job, Kenny never appeared weaker and more beleaguered than he did at Leader's Questions yesterday.

In the context of the appalling wrongs that have been done to the McCabe family, what the Taoiseach did or didn't say to Katherine Zappone around the time the Children's Minister was due to meet Sgt Maurice McCabe is largely irrelevant.
