Enda Kenny

This is my first public update of the Ministerial Taskforce I established to regenerate the north-east inner city. I'm privileged to be working with the local community and appreciate their warmth and kindness when we meet.

Every time we meet in person or update each other on our plans, I make sure to listen carefully to what the people in the inner city are saying.

They tell me they're tired. Tired of being ignored. Tired of having work done for them, not with them.
