CONFIRMED: Enda Kenny will step down as Fine Gael Leader tonight

I have chose to implement that decision from today.

The Housing Minister says he will strive for balanced regional development if elected as Fine Gael leader and Taoiseach.

Fine Gael leadership contender Leo Varadkar.

David Cameron took to Twitter to pay tribute, posting: "Enda Kenny TD was a strong leader for Ireland, a great partner for the United Kingdom, and remains a good friend".

The former Minister of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Simon Coveney, has recently announced that he will enter the race to become the next leader of the Fine Gael party.

Thanks to Enda Kenny, Fine Gael has an abundance of talented representatives, who have an ever increasing experience of governing.

In a statement announcing his retirement as leader, Mr Kenny said it had been a "huge honour and privilege" to steer the party over the course of 15 years.

Liam Glynn, BoyleSports spokesperson said "Now that Enda Kenny has finally chose to throw in the towel, the race is on to see who will succeed him as leader of Fine Gael". He is credited with leading the country out of recession and driving down the national debt, albeit with an austerity agenda that saw big cuts in welfare, health, education and policing.

"I also believe Minister Varadkar will help stabilise our country, deal with the challenges of Brexit and help Donegal and the border counties in the months and years ahead". Minister Michael Creed may be a cause for concern in the Coveney camp, but it is believed that he will end up backing his Cork colleague, while Cork South West TD Jim Daly is expected to break ranks and back Mr Varadkar.

"I made this decision some time ago and I'm confident that Leo Varadkar is the right person who can lead Fine Gael and Ireland into the next generation of politics".

Noonan also said he will not stand for re-election as a member of parliament.

Hopes surrounding a confirmed date being rubber-stamped had dominated much speculative talk as local delegates came together for last Thursday night's annual general meeting in Abbeyshrule.

A party leadership contest has officially begun.

But at a parliamentary election previous year, Fine Gael suffered a backlash from voters who felt the recovery was passing them by.
