Charlie McConalogue has been named to succeed Dara Calleary as Agriculture Minister.

The Fianna Fail TD was put forward for the position by the Taoiseach this afternoon.

Micheal Martin said he expects the Donegal Deputy to perform his duties "with distinction" but will face a number of urgent challenges immediately.

He said these are central to securing the long term future of rural Ireland and the industry that are at their heart.

The Taoiseach says "we must prepare for whatever the post-Brexit trade situation brings, we must negotiate a final CAP deal which serves the interests of our communities".

Mayo TD Dara Calleary stood down as Agriculture Minister in the wake of the golfgate scandal.

Deputy Calleary was among 80 or so people who attended the Oireachtas Golf Society Function in Clifden, Co. Galway.

Meanwhile, James Brown nominated as Minister of State in the Department of Justice.
