Taoiseach Brian Cowen has reacted with speed and dynamism following the shock resignations of five ministers in the Irish Government.
Cowen, who recently won the Irish TV show 'Brian's Got Talent' in which people called Brian had to display talent, awoke this morning to the news that five ministers had already resigned and a sixth was considering his position.
The Taoiseach swiftly called in one of Ireland's most successful entrepreneurs, music supremo Louis Walsh, who has advised Cowen on both PR and political matters.
Following Cowen's meeting with Walsh, it has been announced that Walsh together with the four members of Boyzone will provide temporary cover in the finance, health, justice, defence and transport ministries.
Cowen and Boyzone are due to release a single, provisionally entitled 'Sorry is the hardest word' in April.
