In a cabinet reshuffle in Ireland, Taoiseach Enda Kenny has named a Minister for the Diaspora for the first time ever. Jimmy Deenihan will take on the new role, having previously held the post of Minister for the Arts.
Many Irish diaspora groups around the world will be keeping an eye on the progress of the new ministerial department.
Kenny described the new ministerial position as “an important role in connecting with the huge Irish Diaspora throughout the world”.
