So, we have a Government. It took just over two months to arrange ourselves and get used to this new way of doing things: old rivals coming together, political consensus as the holy grail and Independents ruling the roost.

 If that is the price of stability we'll take it - or the politicians will, rather that than go back to the polls. Now we can actually concentrate on what is going to happen: what will the new Programme for Government deliver? How will the Dáil and committees contribute in this new environment? What can we expect from the politicians we elected back in February?
