    Default Shane McEntee's Replacement to be Announced Today

    The cabinet has approved the appointment of a new Minister for State to replace the late Shane McEntee. Taoiseach Enda Kenny will make the announcement later today.

    If they could survive 6 months without this junior minister, surely they could have just done without it?

    Edit: Tom Hayes gets the job (Tipperary South TD).

    Nail on the head there BN....

    Junior Ministers are a luxury we can ill afford at the moment.... If a Department can get by for six months without one, they're quite obviously not needed.

    True. I see the need for junior ministries in certain cases (Like Health, Justice which have huge portfolios) but yeah if you can do without one for 6 months then you don't need it.
    I'm living in America, and in America, you're on your own. America's not a country. It's just a business. Now f***ing pay me.

    The candidate best* suited to the role will get it





    * best means: most electorally advantageous geographical location; loyalty to Enda; and person with most ability to continually spout the party line, no matter how much he/she disagrees with it.

    I generally think there shouldn't be one but if there is to be one in the Dept. of Agriculture.... here's something I don't get.

    Given we were told Helen McEntee was the best qualified person to replace her Father.... should it not follow that she should get this Junior Minister position ?

    She has experience working beside the person doing the job for quite some time and should know the ropes....

    Well, that's what we were told anyway....

    Tipperary South TD, Tom Hayes is the new Junior Minister for Agriculture, according to Newstalk.

    Who else has never heard of him?
