I think he was the longest serving FG Taoiseach. The implosion of FF was like manna from Heaven for him

He was longest serving FG Taoiseach alright. An awful godbaw, but cute and astute enough when it came to the political maneuverings. I was impressed with the way he cut the throats of the rebels back there a good few years ago, and then extended the olive branch to a few of them afterwards.

History will remember him more fondly than Bertie or any of his comtempories. The diasterous upheavals in our nearest cultural neighbours shows the value of someone who courts the center and not the extremes.

The hospital isn't forgotten, but Kenny's legacy is larger than that.

Would agree with that.

Maybe it's time to start getting the posters ready. FF won't be doing Leo or Simon any favours
Warning. Don't try this at home unless in the company of a responsible adult

Godbaw?  Can't find a definition anywhere.  Is it a BIFFO word or something else?  Or is it just Enda Kenny?

I Was wondering myself, but purely onomatopoetically it seems perfectly apt

Maybe it is  a midland's word.
I have more respect for a man
that says what he means and

Often heard the word gobdaw.
It means someone isn't as bad as a gobsh1te, more of a nice eejit type.

That was the Long Goodbye.

As some comedian said afterwards about Enda's st. Patrick's day immigrant speech in the US
"he's white but he still sounds funny".
