TAOISEACH Enda Kenny told students the government wanted Ireland to be among the most entrepreneurial nations in the world.

Mr Kenny was speaking as he presented the 'Sean Lemass Excellence in Enterprise Awards' for 2013 and 2014. The awards recognise secondary school students who excel in enterprise through taking part in the Student Enterprise Awards and The Get Up and Go Programme. "I am awed by your achievements, sheer enthusiasm, spirit and your engagement with entrepreneurship," said Mr Kenny, saying Ireland was working toward a "world-class environment for business". He said education has a "key role to play".
