The good news is this 31st Dáil is nearly over and done with. The less than good news is that there will be more in January.

There were dozens of TDs in the Dáil chamber yesterday for large chunks of the day. That followed a "one-woman show" on Monday, when junior rural affairs minister Ann Phelan was left to be the government and opposition as she drove through legislation all about prisons, and nothing to do with her job.

The publicity fall-out prompted Gerry Adams to do a straight "lámha suas", which would have done credit to a surrendering IRA man, though of course he was never an IRA man of any kind - much less the surrendering kind.
