The admission by Central Bank governor Patrick Honohan that he is not good manager will come as little surprise to those watching his performance in his role over the past six years.

He has many good qualities. These include being a straight talker, having a brilliant mind and being dispassionate.

A great man for an overview of the situation, but not so good when it comes to the nitty gritty of ensuring targets are met and things get done, is probably a fair summation of him.
