Just what was lurking to be encountered by those brave enough to go down to the ...

TAOISEACH FINDS SHELTER FROM POLITICAL STORMS IN COOTEHILL AND EMYVALE

Peter Hughes Taoiseach Leo Varadkar gained some surcease from the turbulent events of national politics when he fulfilled public engagements in Cootehill and Emyvale on Friday last. At the end of a week in which Communications Minister Denis Naughten TD resigned because of the National Broadband Plan imbroglio, prompting some overheated national media speculation about the prospect of a General Election, Mr Varadkar stepped into a more relaxed and welcoming atmosphere when he turned the sod for the new Holy Family School development in Cootehill before proceeding to Emyvale’s Blackwater ...
