RTE and Irish Independent: Enda Kenny for a top EU job?

Read Carefully

What are Enda Kenny’s chances of becoming President of the European Commission or President of the European Council in 2014? I spoke to RTE Radio 1 and was interviewed for an article, ‘Kenny tipped for plum job as head of the EU’, by Fionnan Sheahan in the Irish Independent:

David O'Leary said: "We have been told by people in the institutions and elsewhere that he is quite well thought of as a result of the Irish presidency.

"He is seen as someone who is a capable person. He is not a big name with an ego. He is fairly well liked across his peers in the European Council.

"It is on the back of a good EU presidency. Ireland is seen as a constructive player and member of the EU, notwithstanding the defeats of EU referenda."
