A historic day as we take our first steps into the unknown

IT was a remarkable day, and certainly an historic one. There has never been a Dail like the 31st. No other witnessed such a large government majority; no other followed such a violent swing at the polls; no other, at least since the early days of the State, had such a diverse collection of members.
The Dail is different and Enda Kenny and his ministers must endeavour to make the Government different too.
In his inaugural speech, he said one difference would be that the new government would tell the people the truth no matter how difficult that may be.
