After barely surviving a leadership challenge and seeing a large chunk of his cabinet bail, Irish PM Cowen announces his resignation as head of the Fianna Fail party. However, Cowen will remain as PM in order to see through passage of legislation necessary for the EU/IMF bailout. Elections on March 11 should put his tenure to rest.
