On the day after presenting the Ryder Cup, a few glitches for Taoiseach Bertie Ahern in the midst of questions about mysterious payments to him 13 years ago when he was Minister for Finance:
The Taoiseach, Bertie Ahern, has indicated that he does not intend to make any statement today on the controversy over personal donations to him 13 years ago.
He was speaking to journalists at an event at Dublin Zoo. Later the Taoiseach's appearance at a function at Griffith College in Dublin was briefly delayed when he and his entourage were stuck in a lift for around five minutes. The engagement is now going ahead.
Actually, Bertie's itinerary of the last 24 hours does make one wonder what proportion activities such as openings, presentations, and "engagements" account for in his day.
UPDATE: Tuesday's Irish Times shows Bertie emerging from the lift.
