Gene Kerrigan: It's now a standing, thinking, praying Dail
As Enda breaks a new record, the Dail drifts further from relevance to its people, writes Gene Kerrigan
Yesterday, Enda Kenny's second government was a year in office. And, about two weeks ago, Enda finally managed to beat John A Costello's record and become the longest-serving Fine Gael Taoiseach.
This was a record that no one knew existed until Enda set his heart on breaking it.
As achievements go - well... let me just suggest that somewhere out there some poor sod holds the record for walking the length of O'Connell Street without once stepping on a crack in the pavement. Some people find comfort in such things.
