The Lone Ranger (aka Taoiseach Mícheál) comes to town.

A Welcoming Committee of one.

He lets the mask slip for the viewers at home.

Finally into the saloon.

Where's the boss.

A few words with Madame.

Job OXO & time for refreshments at the bar.

Madame poses with just a few of the girls saved by the Lone Ranger.

Only one question remains.

Where is Tonto?

Stay tuned.

  1. This was Mícheál Martin's first European Council as Taoiseach. Heads of State or Government (HOSG) turned up masked, though some of them were not wearing them properly.

    Normally on the way in, the HOSG is faced with a battery of press, national and international. Today it is just a lone cameraman. So, just a few words and no heckling.

    When the Taoiseach enters the chamber, an assistant point out to him where to sit (or whatever).

    He exchanges a few words with Commission President, Ursula von der Leyen and eventually sits down at the Irish seat.

    Before the proceedings start the girls (not all of them) pose for a shot - Sopie, Ursula, Angela and Sanna.

    Then the cameras get thrown out and the Council gets down to business.
    You can view the Taoiseach’s arrival and “press interlude” here.
