The honeymoon looks to be over for Kenny
Taoiseach Enda Kenny's honeymoon period ended abruptly this week. Mr Kenny was blissfully unaware of the impending arrival of the Moriarty Tribunal's final report as he walked to a Cabinet meeting on Tuesday morning.
The Tribunal report is damaging to the country and embarrassing for his party, but is unlikely to alter the course of his progress in restoring the economy.
However, the Taoiseach suffered a more fundamental setback when he was forced to postpone the negotiation on the bailout until after stress tests into the banks are completed next week.
