The former Taoiseach Enda Kenny has been given the prestigious honour of being named Irish European of the year.
Mr Kenny, who is the longest serving TD in the Dáil, was nominated for the award after European Movement Ireland delegates agreed that the Fine Gael TD should be considered for the award.
It is believed Mr Kenny, who will be given the award at a special EU event on Monday, was given the prestigious honour for his efforts in guiding Ireland out of the recession.
In an announcement made earlier today the European Movement Ireland said Mr Kenny was a worthy recipient of the award.
