Kenny targets March 2016 for next election

THE next general election will be held in March 2016, Taoiseach Enda Kenny has confirmed.

"In March of 2016, people can judge us on the mandate they gave us," Mr Kenny told his parliamentary party tonight.

The date is unsurprising, as March 2016 will mark five years since the Fine Gael-Labour Coalition was elected.

Mr Kenny was speaking at the Fine Gael think-in in Co Laois.
