    Junior Ministerial reshuffle

    This should be much more far reaching than the senior one.

    A significant number of changes looks likely.

    I would categorize them as follows:

    Safe:
    Helen McEntee
    Sean Kyne
    Patrick O'Donovan

    Likely retained:
    Andrew Doyle
    Catherine Byrne
    Pat Breen
    Damian English

    Facing the drop:
    Marcella Corcoran Kennedy
    Dara Murphy
    David Stanton

    To be promoted:
    JP Phelan
    Josepha Madigan
    Jim Daly

    In the mix:
    Michael D'Arcy
    John Deasy
    Brendan Griffen
    Ciaran Cannon
    Fergus O'Dowd
    Pat Deering
    Martin Heydon

    Thoughts?

    There is nothing significant about it.

    Nobody cares.

    Glad MCK is possibly going, after her defence of the custodial sentence punishment for woman who get abortions. The relevant remarks were during the debate on a bill for abolishing the punishment.

    Reports on twitter indicate noone first elected in 2016 will get anything.

    Ha, I said the number would be significant not the fact that it is happening!

    Why the hell is our tax being taken from us to enrich this bunch of nobodies? Most of them , incumbent or otherwise , have contributed shag all and are certainly not worth huge salaries and possible pensions. The people don't need them , just get them off the stage.

    Dara Murphy appeared competent and with a change in boss at Iveagh house, would it not be worth keeping him for Brexit talks?












    Yours (un)faithfully,
    Dara.

    He'll get a promotion.

    Be a slap in the face for Griffin if ignored he was out promoting Leo very early, opposed to most of the FG councillors in kerry who backed Coveney. He was overlooked by Kenny and I've a feeling he will be overlooked again.

    What about Alan Farrell, his talents will surely be recognised ?
