Campaigns For Fine Gael Leadership Put On Ice

The two leading contenders have accepted Enda Kenny’s plans to deal with the leadership of Fine Gael, after he returns from his trip to the White House next month.

Leo Varadkar says the matter is settled and he’s happy they’ve avoided damaging divisions.

Simon Coveney’s said what happened was more or less what he hoped for.


But they’ll have to put their campaigns effectively on ice for a month after Enda Kenny silenced his critics in the room and insisted he was getting on with the important work of government.

Parliamentary Party chairman Martin Heydon’s insisting the party is united after a week of turmoil over the leadership.
