The modesty was almost unbearable in Fail Eireann this afternoon when Enda Kenny FINALLY stepped down as Taoiseach of Ireland.
It’s anticipated without doubt that Leo Varadkar will be the new Taoiseach, more than likely tomorrow afternoon, having secured the backing of Fianna Fail and Michael Lowry yesterday.
Kenny went on to say that his “motivation was always what was in the best interests of the Irish people”.
Kenny said today that he hoped he made a “modest contribution” to Ireland and its people.
He continued in the “modest” fashion by saying:
“This has never been about me, it has always been Ceann Comhairle about the challenges that our people and our country face,” Mr Kenny said in his address.
“That said, I’m very happy to have the opportunity to thank you and your predecessors, and indeed all the staff of this house for their assistance and their unfailing courtesy over the last six years as Taoiseach but over the last 42 years since Ive been a member of this house.”
