Local TDs pledge support for Varadkar

LocalĀ TDs for Carlow and Kilkenny says that opinions of Leo Varadkar will not change.

Pat Deering and John Paul Phelan were speaking in wake of the Minister for Health’s announcement yesterday that he is openly gay.

Deputy Deering, says that Varadkar’s ‘coming out’ will have no bearing on how he is viewed within the party.

While Deputy Phelan told KCLR News that he would have no problem backing his party-colleague and friend if he were to put himself forward for Taoiseach should the position arise.
