Eamon Gilmore: from people's hero to dead man walking
Where did it all go wrong for the Labour chief who is fighting to save his job?
How do you go from being the most popular political leader in the country by far to the least, who is now fighting to save his job?
How do you go from being the voice of the people to being as unpopular as Brian Cowen was in the weeks before his disgraced administration fell?
Well, you could say that the troubles for Eamon Gilmore began on the day Labour went into government on March 9, 2011.
