Kenny tackled by pro-life senator

TAOISEACH Enda Kenny was confronted about the abortion bill by a pro-life Fianna Fail senator at the JFK commemoration ceremony in Wexford.

He had a frank exchange of views with local Fianna Fail senator Jim Walsh as VIPs were taking their seats in New Ross.

Mr Walsh expressed his view that suicide should not be used as a reason for a termination.

He said he asked Mr Kenny to meet him again.

"He gave his views and I gave my views. He gave me the impression that he'll consider having a meeting but I'll have to send him an email and follow up on it," he added.
