Green Party TD Roderic O'Gorman

The formation of the new Government has resulted in the rightful analysis of all ministers, especially those who weren't already household names.

The newly appointed Children's Minister (among other roles) is Green Party TD Roderic O'Gorman. Interesting things about him include the fact that he has a master's degree in EU law and a PhD in social rights. He is "passionate" about education, which you would imagine is a great start. He has green credentials, obviously, and was the party's spokesperson on justice.

So, smart, intelligent, experienced and enthusiastic.
