will complete the Western Rail link during a first term in
Said Deputy Kenny: "I can now go further in regard to a
timescale, as I will assure the people of the West that this
project will be dealt with and completed in the first term
of Fine Gael in Government.
Fine Gael gave its full approval for this project prior
to the last election and that commitment stands and will be
honoured by me.
"Cllr Murray's comments on radio are to be deplored about

Party's associations with IRA elements that for years blew
up railway lines in this country.
Cllr Murray need not worry about Fine Gael doing its job,
and I look forward to that when the people give me their
mandate. "As for his comment about having the luxury of
Opposition, I can assure him that promises entered into by
Fine Gael in opposition or Government will be honoured
unlike his Party and Fianna Fáil, who have repeatedly
lied to the Irish people and broken their trust repeatedly,"
Deputy Kenny added.
