TAOISEACH ENDA KENNY has been among world leaders at the G8 Summit in Lough Erne again today and just a few minutes ago took a stroll with British Prime Minister David Cameron and US President Barack Obama.

Kenny was taking part in a working lunch with the two G8 leaders and others with Kenny later pictured taking a stroll with a larger group that included IMF chief Christine Lagarde.

Perhaps the Taoiseach was thanking Lagarde for the latest instalment of Ireland’s bailout money:

The walk was purely for the benefit of the world’s media or more specifically photographers and cameramen. None of the leaders made any comment during the brief event.

Kenny joined Obama and Cameron in walking in one direction towards the main Lough Erne building where they were joined by a host of other leaders including Lagarde and British deputy prime minister Nick Clegg before they walked back along the path with Kenny deep in conversation with Lagarde.
