Take me to your leader
As the General Election looms, many polls suggest Fine Gael leader Enda Kenny is the next Taoiseach in waiting. So what is he really like? And where does he stand on the issues that matter to Hot Press readers?
Jason O'Toole, 08 May 2007
For my part, I want to put my piece in the jigsaw, to build a better Ireland. To sort out the health problem. Give people value for money. Reform the public service so that people have a real interest in doing their jobs to the best of their ability. I would like to send young people out from schools able to be competent and confident on any stage they stand on – because that’s an investment in the future. And long after I am gone out of politics – as Peter O’Toole said in ‘Goodbye Mr Chips’ when the class were leaving – ‘Each one of you are leaving here with a little piece of me.’
