In part one Fiach Kelly reports on Enda Kenny's apparent admission of the state's powerlessness to stop the Kinahan gang, and on the difficulties some Independent members of the new government are having in setting down in their new roles.
In part two: in light of comments by President Higgins seen by many as critical of Government policy, Hugh and Fiach are joined by The Irish Times resident expert on the presidency Ruadhán Mac Cormaic and Dr Eoin Daly of NUIG to discuss the limits of the President's constitutional role and whether Michael D Higgins gets a free pass from the Dáil.
