Enda Kenny became the first Fine Gael leader to be re-elected as Taoiseach at Dail Eireann yesterday but was in very different surrounds today.
Mr Kenny is well-known for his love of sport and was pitchside at the Sportsgrounds today as Connacht took on the Glasgow Warriors with a win for either side guaranteeing a home semi-final in the Guinness Pro12.
It was tense in the Dail yesterday as Fine Gael negotiators tried to finalise a deal with the Independent Alliance but I don't think it could compare with the white heat of the action in Galway today.
The announcer at the Sportsgrounds spotted the politician in the stands and couldn't resist some fun.
