ENDA KENNY IS expected to set out his timeline for a transition of power within Fine Gael this Wednesday when he meets party colleagues, after growing pressure on his position and days of speculation.

The idea that he could take over a newly-created brief as Brexit minister gained traction on Marian Finucane’s RTÉ show yesterday morning – and in a poll for the Sunday Business Post last month nearly three-quarters of respondents said they’d like to see a new dedicated ministerial role to deal with the Brexit fallout.

We’re asking: Would you like to see Enda Kenny become Ireland’s Brexit minister?
