Europe needs to break out of the bubble of politics and listen to those who have shifted away from the centre, Taoiseach Enda Kenny has warned.

Mr Kenny told the European People's Party (EPP) Congress in Malta this morning that the "fracture of old politics" is a warning that needs to be heeded.

Mr Kenny said good people had been pushed to the left in anger and the right in fear.

On Brexit, he said the language of the Good Friday Agreement needed to be in the ground rules for the Brexit negotiations.

Fine Gael is affiliated to the EPP, which is the largest political grouping in the European Parliament.
