Michael Ring appointed Minister for Rural Affairs in Cabinet reshuffle

Mayo Fine Gael TD Michael Ring was last night appointed Minister for Rural Affairs by the newly elected Taoiseach Leo Varadkar.

It had been widely speculated that Mr Ring, who had been Minister of State for Regional Economic Development, would be promoted to a senior ministry in the reshuffled cabinet.

The Taoiseach has created a new portfolio in Rural Affairs, which Minister Ring will head up.

He told Midwest News this morning it is a proud day for him and his family.
