HE HAS already climbed to the top of the political ladder, but while climbing Ireland's highest mountain Carrantuohill, Taoiseach Enda Kenny had an opportunistic encounter with Killorglin-native Bridget Moriarty.
"We wouldn't have recognised him if it wasn't for one of his friends pointing him out to us," said Bridget. "He was very easy-going and friendly," she added.
The result of this encounter was one of the most unlikely photographs: Bridget strutting a yoga pose next to the Taoiseach on top of Carrantuohill.
Mr Kenny, accompanied by a group of about 15 people, didn't hang around for an impromptu yoga session. Although this was hardly on Bridget's mind either at this stage of the tough climb.
