TD Tom Hayes will travel to Australia for St Patrick’s Day

Co Tipperary TD Tom Hayes will be travelling to Australia for this year’s St Patrick’s Day.
Each year government ministers leave the country for festive period and this year, 14 of the 15 cabinet minsters will be heading off.

Tipperary’s Alan Kelly will also be travelling far afield, going to China.
The Taoiseach, as is usually the case, will be going to the US as will the Tanaiste.
The only cabinet member not to be travelling abroad for St Patrick’s Day this year is the Finance Minster Michael Noonan.
