Labour TD Alex White gets Roisin Shortall’s job as health junior minister –
Tanaiste Eamon Gilmore announced his pick this afternoon, and said Mr White’s appointment will be formally ratified by Cabinet next Tuesday.
The appointment will also boost Mr White’s chances of survival in the ‘group of death’ Dublin South constituency, which drops from a five seater to a three seater at the next general election.
Mr White is a senior counsel specialising in employment and Labour law, and worked as an RTE radio producer for ten years before qualifying as a barrister in 1994. His time with RTE included a four year stint on the ‘Gay Byrne Show’.
