Welcome back. You might have tuned out for a few weeks from the problems of our little country but don't worry, because you haven't missed much.

The homeless, health and Brexit crises are still getting worse. And Noirin O'Sullivan is still the embattled Garda Commissioner backed by the Government and bemoaned by an Opposition afraid to take her down.

So if like Noirin O'Sullivan, you've taken the past five weeks out, it's fine because Irish politics is much like an Aussie soap. You'll be able to pick up right where you left off.
