"Are you a control freak?" - Enda Kenny answers tough questions from the Moone Boy kid

Did you ever flush your sandwiches down the toilet, Taoiseach? Well, did you?

“EVEN AS A child, were you a control freak?”

“Is it ok if I call you ‘An’?”

“Did you ever flush your sandwiches down the toilet?”

What would you ask Taoiseach Enda Kenny if you could interview him? Actually, don’t answer that. We’ve all read the comments section. We can guess.

But what about Moone Boy legend David Rawle? The 13-year-old actor sat down with Enda Kenny, actress Amy Huberman and rugby player Rob Kearney to ask them some tough questions.

Some of our favourite moments:

David: “You were given a good education, yet when it came to choosing a partner, you chose Brian. What was that about?”

Amy Huberman: “I felt I was running out of time.”

David: ”Name three types of eggs.”

Rob Kearney: [confidently] “Chicken eggs…”

David: “WRONG! Boiled eggs, scrambled eggs and creme eggs.”

David: “True or false: Angela Merkel is an anagram of jellied mackrel”.

Enda Kenny: [gasps theatrically]: “False”.

It was all for a good cause, of course. The video is part of a campaign by Focus Ireland to highlight the importance of education when it comes to preventing homelessness (most of the questions were about school and education, y’see). Some 50% of homeless adults in Ireland left school before they had finished their secondary education, according to the most recent census data.

We’ll leave it to you lot in the comments to work out whether Rob Kearney really is an anagram of One Bakery or not. No cheating now. And don’t let anyone else copy your answer.
