John Drennan: Keaveney brings flair to staid 4-4-2
Fianna Fail have adopted quite the colourful child, but he's a gamble worth taking
As Colm Keaveney and Fianna Fail pledged their troth on the Dail plinth, you could hardly blame us for starting to hum the old Chuck Berry song about how "it was a teenage wedding and the old folks wished them well".
There were certainly lots of "good luck" style sentiments coming from Fianna Fail to Keaveney and more intriguingly still from the Labour TDs to their FF counterparts.
But, unlike the wiser school of nuptial attendees who keep their mouths shut over the chances of teenage weddings ending well, colder analysts were less optimistic.
