I am deeply honored to be elected as the new President of the #Eurogroup . I look forward to working with all of my Eurogroup colleagues in the years ahead to ensure a fair and inclusive recovery for all as we meet the challenges ahead with determination

Very significant agreement reached in #Eurogroup . Support available for governments, employers and citizens. It took a few hours to agree, but only because this really matters. Very important step forward.

I’m on the @Luas  on way to work. Big increase in number of passengers wearing face masks. But still not everyone. Please do, we need to stay safe. @ronan_glynn  making the risks clear re travel and safety.

The most unusual evening before #StPatricksDay . But, a greening that did go ahead.

On a bright morning in Dublin airport I’m calling for a yes vote for women who are also traveling today. We can do better. #menforyes 

Privileged to be re-appointed as Minister for Finance. We need to rebuild our economy. Again. We will.

On Friday, @ReginaDo ⁩ & I announced the extension of the Wage Subsidy Scheme & the Pandemic Unemployment Payment: the aim of which is to help keep more people connected to their employers, keeping them in a job & to support the incomes of those who have lost their jobs

Latest job figures mark highest level of employment ever in Ireland @ 2.26m. Behind each stat is a human story; another pay packet at the end of the week, a jobseeker getting back on his/her feet. Govt will continue to pursue right policies for our people

The #Eurogroup  supports the candidacy of Frank Elderson for the position of new member of the ECB's executive board.
