Dan O'Brien: Kenny the contender could be accidental EU president
Our bailout exit has made the Taoiseach a potential candidate for a European post, writes Dan O'Brien
TONIGHT Enda Kenny will address the nation. He will bask in the national and international glow of leading the country from bailout ignominy. It is a triumph for the Taoiseach and his Government and one that nobody would begrudge him.
But one consequence of all this is that, in just under one year from now, a new Taoiseach may well be settling into Government Buildings.
Change at the top is a real possibility because Enda Kenny is now being spoken of seriously in Europe as a candidate for an EU presidency role next year.
