For better or for worse, Enda woos voters as he kisses the blushing bride
On the hustings
'Taoiseach! Taoiseach! A bride! A bride!" The scrum of press photographers was up to 90.
The Fine Gael handlers were doing cartwheels down Carlow's main street. And the gaggle of local candidates and the Euro candidate fervently thanked their particular constellations of lucky stars.
Enda was promptly dragged away from the quiet chat he was having with an elderly woman and hauled over the roadside where a beaming bride and groom were scrambling out of the wedding car, clutching glasses of bubbly.
