Enda Kenny will be opening a bottle bank today

No, seriously.

As well as running the country, Kenny also has to deal with matters in his Mayo constituency, something which becomes more pressing as an election approaches.

There has been some speculation in recent months that the Fine Gael leader is worried for his seat having come in for criticism locally for not doing enough for his constituents over the last four years.

The much-liked Michael Ring is fancied to top the poll at the expense of his party leader who would be battling it out with fellow Fine Gael TD Michelle Mulherin for what it’s thought will be two safe seats for the party. The other party TD, John O’Mahoney, has moved to another constituency.

But whatever does happen, no one can accuse Kenny of not showing up for stuff in his hometown.

The evidence of that is in a public event taking place in Castlebar this morning. It’s the grand opening of some bottle banks situated in a car park in Castle Street in the town.

Our dear leader will be there along with local councillors and the chairman of Castlebar Municipal District Al McDonnell.

We can’t wait for the pictures from this one…
