Louth TD Fergus O’Dowd has this afternoon lost his position as a junior minister following a reshuffle by Taoiseach Enda Kenny.

The Drogheda man had held the position of Minister of State at the Department of Communications, Energy & Natural Resources and Environment, Community & Local Govt, with responsibility for the NewEra Project. However, that role has now been made largely defunct with Paudie Coffey taking up the post at the Department of the Environment and Joe McHugh in Communications

Both will have slightly differing responsibilities to that of their Fine Gael colleague though.

As revealed last week, fellow Louth TD Ged Nash of the Labour Party was confirmed in the super-junior role which sits at Cabinet and takes charge of issues relating to small business and collective bargaining.
