Bertie's Ashes

Bertie Ahern may be one of the few true socialists in the Dáil, but now it looks like he might be the only real Catholic too.

At Leaders Questions today, he sported the only visible smudge of ashes on his forehead in the Dáil Chamber.

In the gallery was a deputation of about 6 representatives of various State Legislatures from the USA, there to watch proceedings.

Hopefully someone had explained the relevance of the smudge and they didn’t go away thinking that he had a very perfunctory wash this morning and is without access to a mirror.
