If Pride is a sin, there were a multitude of sinners in Mayo this week. Many listened to radio, watched television coverage, and there were those who migrated to Dublin for the occasion. Lest you be confused, the occasion marked the change of government. Of greater significance was the elevation of Enda Kenny as Taoiseach of Ireland. His speech was statesman like, offering comparisons to Obama and Kennedy. He also alluded to an honesty, hitherto missing in Irish politics.Enda has also emerged as a fighter, he has led his party back from the jaws of near defeat, defying his critics, to an historical majority While his head will be occupied with the very demanding challenges, his heart will remain in Mayo. In the hustle and bustle of the results, Enda made the obligatory visit to Dublin, but insisted on returning to Mayo to join local supporters. This tells much about the man and his priorities. He shared the victory with friends, families, party workers. The time has also come for newly appointed junior minister Michael Ring. Michael has the proven drive and tenacity to bring results in his new responability.He will continue to do us proud in what is a very demanding and challenging portfolio. Tourism is a critical economic driver in the West but has lacked the necessary support in the past. On behalf of the many sinners and very proud, may we wish the incoming government, An Taoiseach, Deputy Enda Kenny, Junior Minister Deputy Michael Ring, Deputy Michelle Mulhern, Deputy John O’Mahony, a very productive future.
