Bruce Arnold: From the brink of chaos to well-deserved holiday

Bruce Arnold

BY far the most important achievement of the administration led by Enda Kenny and Eamon Gilmore, as it breaks up for a well-deserved summer holiday, is that it has restored faith in the working of politics and in the broad integrity of those holding office and those who support them.

They constitute a team that is engaged in the government of the country on behalf of all the people of the country in as fair a way as possible and in times that are unprecedented in the burdens placed on their shoulders.

It has been a huge act of political will just to take on the task of reintroducing a credible order of doing things against a background of the worst political collapse the State had experienced during its history.
