It's Enda and Eamon's birthday today... but can you guess who's older?

A pair of pups.

TODAY WE CELEBRATE the glorious double birthday of Enda Kenny and Eamon Gilmore.

The pair of lads are fairly close in age, but there are a few years between them. Can you guess which one is older, based on these clues?

Eamon loves the tunes….
