Bertie Ahern is to step down from his twin role as Irish taoiseach and leader of the Fianna Fáil party on May 6th.  He's departing under something of a cloud - his personal finances are being sifted through by a corruption tribunal, although he denies any wrongdoing.  History, though, will most likely remember him for his role in the Irish peace process.

I'd recommend Three Line Whip's excellent coverage.
