That's a grand break, isn't it?

DON’T WORRY – TDs aren’t off on their summer holidays just yet.

That won’t be happening for weeks.

It’s just a long (long) bank holiday weekend.

In fairness, it’s been a busy few weeks – what with last weekend’s referendum, and the progress of the Aer Lingus deal. Not to mention Averil Power’s Monday bombshell.

After catching their breath – TDs will be back on duty in just 11 days’ time … senators join them, in the upper house, slightly later the same afternoon.
