FG rebel Creighton delighted with post

SHE once infuriated her party leader Enda Kenny by complaining about Fine Gael turning into "Fianna Fail Light", writes Aine Kerr.

But now rebel Lucinda Creighton has been cleverly brought into the inner circle of Enda Kenny's leadership.

Ms Creighton is now the junior minister assigned to the Department of Taoiseach, the office of the man she once vehemently opposed. The position of European minister means Ms Creighton will become one of the Government's most public faces on the European stage.

The new junior minister said last night she was "delighted" with her promotion, and insisted she was not an "enemy" of fellow Mayo native Mr Kenny, with whom she would now be working closely.
