Listen: Consternation Over Some Ministerial Appointments Rumbles On.

: 06/29/2020 - 11:56

Cabnet Ministers are meeting this afternoon in their new roles.

After a new government was appointed over the weekend they will be updated on the state of play of COVID-19.

The state of the economy and the cost of the wage supports will be discussed.

There remains, however, consternation in some quarters about some of the ministerial appointments, most notably the lack of portfolio for Fianna Fáil Deputy Leader, Dara Calleary.

Newbridge resident, John Downing, is Political Correspondent at the Irish Independent.

He joined Clem Ryan on Kildare Today.
