A GREEN PARTY MINISTER has expressed confidence that their work in Government will be remembered when it comes to polling day.
Relations between Government parties appear to have taken a dent over the turf ban controversy with Tánaiste Leo Varadkar (FG) voicing criticism of Minister for Climate, Eamon Ryan (GP) at a recent parliamentary party meeting.
During a visit to Co Clare which included engagements in Inagh, Lisdoonvarna, Ennis and Newmarket-on-Fergus, Minister for Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth, Roderic O’Gorman (GP) was hopeful for their future.
The Clare Echo referenced previous calls from Minister Ryan which discussed the re-introduction of wolves across the country and asked Minister O’Gorman if he was worried that their partners in Government would throw them to the wolves when it comes to the next election.
“I think we’re working well across Government in terms of how we responded to the COVID crisis, the public health outcomes but also economic outcomes our country has had compared to other European countries, it’s a Government that has delivered so far. I believe our party is delivering in Government both on our core Green agenda but also on issues within my own Department like supporting childcare, the voters will recognise that I think come the next election and the work that myself and fantastic colleagues like Senator Garvey have been doing,” Minister O’Gorman responded.
