Appointment Of Junior Ministers Provokes More Criticism For New Government

Limerick TD Willie O'Dea is the latest to criticise the Taoiseach's appointments.

Micheál Martin's Ministerial appointments are continuing to cause upset in the Fianna Fáil ranks.

While some who were overlooked for cabinet like Thomas Byrne and Anne Rabbitte got Junior Ministerial roles yesterday, other front bench TDs did not.

Cork TD Michael Moynihan has said being passed over was an insult to him and his area.

While Limerick City TD Willie O'Dea has also criticised the appointments.

He said he was disappointed to be left out and that it's an insult to Limerick City that they have no Junior Minister.

Two Limerick county TDs did get Ministries of State in Niall Collins and Patrick O'Donovan.
