Theresa May Makes Statement Following Resignation of Enda Kenny

Theresa May, the Prime Minister, has issued a statement following the resignation of Enda Kenny, the leader of the Irish party Fine Gael. Kenny has been the Taoiseach, or Prime Minister, of Ireland since 2011 and will stand down from that position when a successor is found.

May said:

“Enda has been a strong and consistent friend to the UK and I want to thank him for all he has done to maintain the unique and close spirit of cooperation between our two nations, which has gone from strength to strength during his time as Taoiseach.

On behalf of the UK, I wish him all the very best for the future and look forward to working with his successor, when in place”.
