Fine Gael TD and Minister of State Andrew Doyle has been reappointed by An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar as Minister of State at the Department of Agriculture.
“I am delighted to be reappointed. It’s a huge honour for me personally to continue in my role as Minister of State with responsibility for Food, Forestry and Horticulture. I have been privileged to serve in this Department over the past 13 months and look forward to continuing this role in the times ahead.
“It is a challenging time for the Agricultural sector. There is much uncertainty as a result of the decision of the UK to leave the European Union. Working alongside Minister Michael Creed, we have engaged with all relevant stakeholders and built strong relationships which will play a leading role in facing the challenges that lie ahead as we deal with Brexit”.
Minister Doyle also thanked his supporters and people of County Wicklow and East Carlow for the continuous and on-going support, without which he said he would not be able to carry out his role as TD and Minister
