Enda Kenny must make full statement on McNulty appointment - Peadar Tóibín TD
Sinn Féin TD Peadar Tóibín has called on An Taoiseach Enda Kenny to make a full statement on his admission this evening that he appointed his party’s former Seanad nominee John McNulty to the Irish Museum of Modern Art.
The Taoiseach had previously denied ever making such an appointment.
Speaking after this evening’s RTÉ Leaders’ Debate Deputy Tóibín said;
“The Taoiseach must make a full statement on this matter before the people go to the polls on Friday.
“It is now clear that Enda Kenny did make this appointment in order to boost the qualification of his party’s candidate for the Seanad panel to which he was to be elected by the government majority.
“This smacks of political cronyism and Enda Kenny has been found out this evening.
“This is just another example of the golden circle type of politics that has reigned under Fine Gael, Labour and Fianna Fáil.
“The choice before the people this week is between more of the same from those parties or a new, progressive government led by Sinn Féin under the Right2Change Principles.”
