Taoiseach: Yes vote would send powerful message

The Taoiseach has said the EU Fiscal Treaty will not solve all our problems, but that it was one part of the solution.

Speaking in a televised address on RTÉ this evening, Mr Kenny outlined three reasons why he believed Ireland should vote yes on Thursday.

He said the treaty would ensure a strong flow of investment in jobs, access to Europe's permanent rescue fund, and responsible budgeting throughout the EU.

The Taoiseach also said the treaty had been signed by 25 countries, and that its contents would not be changed.

Enda Kenny said a yes vote was essential for growth and job creation.

"A yes vote will send out a powerful message internationally, about the kind of country Ireland is," he said.
