History will be kind to Gilmore, says Noonan

UPDATE: With all eyes on the Labour Party as a leadership battle kicks off, Fine Gael's Michael Noonan says history will be kind to Eamon Gilmore.

27th May, 2014
Gilmore stepped down after his party’s dismal performance in last Friday’s elections.

Finance minister Michael Noonan told reporters in Dublin today that “we’ll see” if there’s room to lessen austerity measures planned for 2015.

Noonan said there was not much “domestic discretion” over the budget for next year. He told reporters that the economy continues to grow strongly but that there are a lot of “moving parts” ahead of the 2015 budget to be announced on October 14th.
