Leo drums up support in Gdansk

He may be talking about sacking public sector workers, but Leo Varadkar was popular with Irish fans in Gdansk yesterday.

Wearing an Ireland jersey, the Transport, Tourism and Sports Minister went down a storm and was treated to chants of "Leo! Leo!"-- a la 'Keano' -- as he walked by.

One Dub decided to have a chat with the minister.

"Ah Jaysus Leo, how's things above in the Dail this weather? Yis are slowly getting us out of the sh**e."

Mr Varadkar said the comment showed "the electorate don't often get the detail but they tend to get the bigger picture".
