Keeping it in the family — Kitt loses junior minister post but sister Áine Brady gains

Galway East TD Mícheál Kitt lost his junior ministerial position in yesterday’s shake up of junior ministers, but his sister, Áine Brady, has secured a ministerial position in the Kildare North constituency.

Dep Kitt had served as a Minister of State initially for overseas development and later for local services, since he was re-elected in 2007. The Tuam native is one of seven outgoing junior ministers to be dropped in a bid to cut Government costs as part of the emergency Budget.

However Dep Áine Brady has secured a post as Minister of State for Older People and Health Promotion in the reshuffles. Dep Brady was one of two new junior ministers announced yesterday.
