Enda Kenny

Enda Kenny is an Irish politician who has been the Taoiseach of Ireland since 9 March 2011. The leader of the Fine Gael party since 2002, he has been a Teachta Dála (TD) for Mayo since 1975, having succeeded his father Henry Kenny.
Kenny served as Minister for Tourism and Trade from 1994 to 1997. He has been leader of Fine Gael since 2002, is the longest-serving TD in Dáil Éireann still in office, and is the incumbent Father of the Dáil. He is also a two-term Vice President of the European People's Party.
Kenny led Fine Gael in the 2011 general election. He subsequently brokered an agreement with the Labour Party to form a coalition government, and he was appointed Taoiseach by President Mary McAleese following his election at the first meeting of the 31st Dáil on 9 March 2011. He is Fine Gael's first Taoiseach since John Bruton from 1994 to 1997, and the first Fine Gael leader to win government in an election since Garret FitzGerald in 1982. » Read more on Wikipedia.org
