(Last year's attempt by some over-exuberant Young Fine Gaelers to celebrate Enda and Eamon's first anniversary with a frivolous photo call in Merrion Square was kiboshed by the Chief of the Fun Police, Pat Rabbitte).

Instead, the Taoiseach and Tanaiste held a press conference in Government Buildings to throw a few careful shapes about what they've achieved as a coalition couple since setting up political house together.
