Maeve Sheehan: 'He doesn't do confrontation very well, she is the steel behind him'


ENDA Kenny appointed only two women to his Cabinet and is so in touch with his feminine side that he has one pair of Calvin Klein underpants, cinderises the sausages and walks his muddy boots all over the clean floor every time.

This could make him out to be a bit of a Neanderthal but for the fact that, apparently, according to his friends, he likes women. He always seemed comfortable with them and always got with them, while the rest of lads were puce in the corner, said one.

His Cabinet might be short on them, but his private life is not. Enda's chief attendant is a smart and powerful woman who doesn't hog his limelight and is happy to let him shine. Even when that means forgiving his domestic ineptitude, as his wife Fionnuala O'Kelly has done.
