The Taoiseach has told his Parliamentary Party meeting that he's "no Charlie Haughey".
Fine Gael is now attempting to draw a line under the John McNulty saga, with TDs and Senators told to focus on the economy.
After a meeting that lasted several hours, but was broken up for two Dáil votes, many in Fine Gael felt they were again a family united though there was no visible display of unity between the leadership and the so-called awkward squad.
During the meeting there was criticism from at least a handful of TDs of the Taoiseach's handling of the appointment of John McNulty to the board of IMMA, the Seanad nomination, and the fact the controversy was allowed drag on.
The Finance Minister, Michael Noonan, told TDs and Senators that if they want to kill themselves they can continue to talk about this affair, but if they want a second term they need to talk about the economy and the budget.
At the start, the Taoiseach also said it was time to move on and wrapping up the meeting he again offered an apology to all present for the way the saga had developed.
Enda Kenny declared he was "no Charlie Haughey", that there were no brown envelopes with him, nor was there shifty behaviour in the corridors of Leinster House when he's around.
