Fionnan Sheahan: Fine Gael's moral drift catches up with Enda Kenny at last
The Fianna Fáil barstool boys gave Noel Rock a right going over.
Less than a year after repeatedly nominating Enda Kenny to become Taoiseach, the youngest Fine Gael TD was wielding the axe on his party leader.
After a seismic Fine Gael parliamentary party meeting and tame Dáil vote of no confidence on Wednesday night, Mr Kenny retired to the Dáil Members' Bar for half-an-hour. As he departed for home, Mr Rock scurried out the door after him. On his return, the Fianna Fáil ranks heckled him with catcalls of "30 pieces of silver" and "Judas". There wasn't much of a defence put up by his Fine Gael colleagues present.
