WATCH: Obama denied Enda's handshake and it was mortifying
It’s fine, just look at your hand Taoiseach.

SO, THE TAOISEACH spent St Patrick’s Day in the US, hanging out with his mate President Barack Obama.

It was all going very well until the two men sat down for a chat with the media and Enda went in for a friendly handshake.

It went unnoticed by the US President who started nattering away to the media and our leader was left staring at his own hand, possibly wishing a giant hole would swallow him up. And an entire nation cringed.

Thanks Obama.
