Kenny faces nightmare start to EU presidency after budget talks fail
I understand there have been two other threads on this topic focussing on how much the six month term of Ireland's presidency will cost.
A wider discussion on the challenges facing the Irish presidency is worthwhile in my opinion.
Are there any positive outcomes likely to arise that could benefit the nation if it is carried off well?
What defines a successful presidency?
If the six month term is deemed to be unsuccessful, might that impact on our fortunes?
