TAOISEACH Enda Kenny is under fire from his own backbenchers over continued close links with disgraced TD Michael Lowry.

Noel Coonan, a constituency colleague of Michael Lowry, said Mr Lowry had been dominating the attention of ministers.

At a series of early morning meetings with Fine Gael TDs and senators, the Taoiseach was told bluntly that Mr Lowry seemed to continue to get a lot of "affection" from the party and this was "harming Fine Gael's interests."
