Reports: Costello and Cannon lose out in reshuffle

Reports are emerging about some of the winners and losers in the latest round of the ministerial reshuffle.

Sources say that Ciaran Cannon and Joe Costello have lost out in the plans which are expected to be announced officially in the Dáil this afternoon.

Kevin Humphreys is expected to be promoted, but his new job is still unclear.

Sean Sherlock is refusing to confirm or deny whether he will still be a junior minister after today.

Senior ministers will gather at government buildings in about half an hour's time for their first Cabinet meeting, and the new appointments will be high on the agenda for discussion.
