THERE WERE SOME high-profile departures from Cabinet when the full line-up of the new-look Government was revealed yesterday.

Casualties were expected, however, as Fine Gael, Fianna Fáil and the Greens were all due their share of seats around the table.

Here’s who didn’t make the cut (you can see the new Cabinet lineup in full here):

Outgoing Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy was left out. The Dublin Bay South TD is expected now to take on a role with the organisation of the Fine Gael party.



Richard Bruton, who was Minister for Communications and Climate Action, didn’t get the nod either, to the surprise of some political commentators.

Outgoing Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan is gone but is expected to get a junior ministry. The Laois-Offaly TD was replaced by his party colleague Helen McEntee.

Joe McHugh is gone from education and has been replaced by Fianna Fáil’s Norma Foley.

Delighted for Flanagan, an incompetent West Brit😁
