Listen: Kildare TD Says Ex-AG's Appointment To Court Of Appeal Part Of A "Bad Start" For Leo Varadkar.

: 06/19/2017 - 12:21

A Kildare Fianna Fáil TD says the appointment today of the former Attorney General to the Court of Criminal Appeal is part of a "bad start" for Leo Varadkar as Taoiseach.

Máire Whelan was formally appointed in a short ceremony at Aras an Uachtarán this morning; despite numerous objections.

Her warrant of appointment was signed by President Higgins and countersigned by An Taoiseach.

Two judges of the High Court - Eileen Creedon and Charles Meenan - have also been appointed at the ceremony.

Kildare North Fianna Fáil TD, James Lawless, speaking to Kildare Today, says its an unauspicious beginning to Leo Vardkar's leadership of government.
