Lenihan absent from Dáil after minor treatment

FINANCE Minister Brian Lenihan was absent from the Dáil after undergoing minor treatment.

It’s understood Mr Lenihan received treatment in relation to a suspected hernia which is not expected to keep him from work for long.

As a result of the treatment Mr Lenihan was on the receiving end of some warm wishes from the opposition benches for a change.

Speaking in the Dáil, Fine Gael leader Enda Kenny expressed hope that Mr Lenihan would make a rapid recovery after undergoing the minor operation.

“I understand he is indisposed today and I hope he makes a speedy and full recovery,” Mr Kenny said.

The Department of Finance refused to comment on the issue last night, saying that it was a personal matter for the Minister for Finance.
