Taoiseach calls out the 'whingers' in society

As election campaigning enters its final days, the Taoiseach has launched a scathing attack on some voters in his own constituency.

At a Fine Gael rally in Castlebar last night, Enda Kenny described some local people as "All Ireland Champions" in whingeing.

He made the comments to a rally of supports in his home town last night.

He said they refused to recognise that the town was benefitting from the economic recovery.

The Taoiseach told reporters afterwards that the comments were not aimed a national audience: “Locals, nothing to do with national politics at all.

“Obviously, we get this all the time, but sometimes I feel that people find it very difficult to see any good, anywhere, anytime.”
