​Martin O'Neill and Roy Keane just might be able to tell Leo Varadkar a thing or two about trying to achieve the impossible - with resources that are simply way off the mark.

Leo, back from his summer break looking tanned and refreshed on television this week, immediately ran into yet another maelstrom spawned by our beleaguered health service.

It seems that stratospheric amounts of cash will be required in the next few years, just to keep things more or less as they are. So what's new, the world weary might say. In any case, the amounts of money involved go over the heads of most people, given the millions of euro already needed, just to keep the show on the road.
