A lot of people speculating that Simon Coveney or Mairead McGuinness will replace Phil Hogan.
The decision is at the discretion of the Taoiseach who is Fianna Fail.
Don’t be surprised if he appoints one of his own.

One of his own?
The obvious replacement for #philhogan is Bertie Ahern. He knows the European scene inside out and is a first-rate negotiator who has shown an unrivalled ability to bring people with him.
