I just heard that someone called Joseph Madigan has been named as a minister in the Cabinet by Leo Vardakar. Responsibility for Arts, Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht falls to the new minister.
Minister Madigan has no track record in Arts, Culture, Heritage and is not an Irish Speaker.
So other than sitting in Shane Ross's back yard, what else does the new minster bring to the cabinet table? Is she a relative of the former local FF Councillor Paddy Madigan? Paddy was also a solicitor who's telex address was Madlaw.
He was on the far right and stood fore square behind developers and property rights.
Given that Frances Fitzgerald was in the centre of FG, does this now put someone in cabinet further to the right of Ross?
Is that possible?
