Kennys hush hush Gorey visited interrupted
Despite being kept hush hush until the very last minute, Enda Kenny’s surprise whistle stop tour of County Wexford last Friday was interrupted by members of County Wexford Sinn Féin and campaigners against the household tax and water charges.
Local Fine Gael had kept Mr Kenny’s planned visit to Stafford’s Bakery in Gorey top secret until just before the Taoiseach arrived. They only notified the press one hour before hand. That must have heightened their shocked when they found up to fifty members of Sinn Féin and the campaign against the household tax and water charges waiting for them.
A very noisy and colourful protest was held and Mr Kenny repeatedly refused to answer questions about the fiscal referendum as he literally ran away from the protestors. Over the weekend Wexford delegate to the Sinn Féin Ard Fheis in Kerry, Oisin O’ Connell, mentioned the event when he was speaking on a motion on rural schools. Mr O’ Connell asked if Mr Kenny was listening to his Ard Fheis from his undisclosed location in a secret bunker somewhere.
