Enda Kenny's reaction to Leo Varadkar and Gerry Adams attending the same pilates class is just glorious
This is the reaction of everyone in the country right now...
Sinn Féin leader Gerry Adams today told the Dáil, to much merriment, that he and new Taoiseach Leo Varadkar attended the same pilates class.
It happened a number of times, according to Varadkar himself.
Yes, that image of the pair, engaging in a series of convoluted stretches, will be burned into our minds forever.
Commenting on the announcement of Varadkar as the new Taoiseach, Adams made the big reveal.
"I think [Leo Varadkar] is a decent man, and I wish him well," Adams said. "I do not know him well, though he and I both attended the same pilates class. We couldn't get the former Taoiseach to stretch as far as that."
Of course, it brought much laughter from the crowd.

But our favourite part, as well as many others, was the reaction of former Taoiseach Enda Kenny, who was sitting beside Varadkar.

Speaking in the Dáil later in the session, Varadkar had quite the response to Adams' remark.
"I do think he was better at it than I was," Varadkar admitted. "Perhaps he has experience of being in a tight squeeze".
