Enda Kenny has been selected as the Irish European of Year.

He will be honoured for his role in guiding Ireland through the recession and presenting the Irish position on Brexit to the EU at a special event in Dublin next Monday.

The former Taoiseach is currently the longest serving TD in the Dáil having been first elected in 1975.

Noelle O'Connell of the European Movement in Ireland says Enda Kenny's leadership in guiding Ireland out of the IMF/ECB/EU bailout programme makes him a deserving recipient.
