The MEP for this region, Fine Gael's Mairead McGuinness and Andrew McDowell- the former Vice President of the European Investment Bank are to be put forward as nominees to replace Phil Hogan as European Commissioner.

The Taoiseach will make a formal announcement later today.

The President of the European Commission will ultimately decide which of the candidates gets the job.

Tanaiste Leo Varadkar says he's glad Simon Coveney didn't put his name forward in the end.
