NEW ROLE: Alan Shatter will be consulted on legal issues

Daniel McConnell Political Correspondent

FORMER Justice Minister Alan Shatter will not be offered "any formal role" by Taoiseach Enda Kenny in the pending reshuffle, and his cabinet career is now effectively over.

Mr Kenny has shut the door on any suggestion that Mr Shatter would be offered either a junior ministry or any committee role in the coming months now that he has left Cabinet.

This is being seen as a further deterioration of their once-strong working relationship.
