Last week, we got some clarity on Brexit and the Presidency and saw the Seanad at work.

Gavan Reilly on TV3 earned our gratitude by lucidly gutting Theresa May’s 100-page White Paper for The Tonight Show, standing in front of a big billboard graphic large enough to explain all the elements.

In the discussion that followed, only Lisa Chambers, Fianna Fail’s Brexit spokesperson, seemed to have read the whole document. Given that Brexit is not his brief, Senator Kieran O’Donnell did well to keep up.
