Enda story

- It was with bated breath that I awoke to find your headline on Enda Kenny's property portfolio being quoted on RTE. However, I felt deflated when I heard Fionnan Sheahan's list of the property amounted to so little.

I had expected to learn of property in the UK, US and possibly Russia. His house in Castlebar, a modest office and an apartment in Dublin where he stays while there. And, oh, a field in Mayo as well -- must be gold in that there field!

Seriously, though, two things emerge: either Mr Kenny has very little to show for all his years in Dail Eireann, or else he is a canny Mayoman, who foresaw all this tide flowing and ebbing.
