It's like old times as Noel rolls back
Diners in the public restaurant in Leinster House found themselves digesting a large platter of deja vu this week when a familiar face materialised in the vicinity. For there was former Fianna Fail minister Noel Dempsey, tucking into his lunch like it was the olden times.
Sightings of the last administration's Transport Minister have been few and far between since he announced his retirement in 2011.
But now he's back with bells on, having just landed a gig heading up the non-profit Temple Bar Company, which aims to clean up the tarnished image of the area.
