Enda Kenny will present a programme on Irish railways
Later this year the former Taoiseach and Fine Gael leader will front a television series on RTÉ 1 about old Irish railways from times past. Mr Kenny, a fluent Irish speaker, will present the series in Irish.
Mr Kenny is understood to be enjoying revisiting the old railways in Mayo and adjoining counties, as well as throughout the country.
Always a keen student of history, he is developing a new-found interest in railway history.
….The evisceration of Irish railways mainly occurred in the decades Enda’s father, Henry Kenny, served as a TD and eventually a junior government minister.
Luckily some railways survived in his native Co Mayo, unlike other counties.
