The Commission President appointed Mairead McGuinness, a former television presenter, as the next Irish commissioner. Dublin was dealt a harsh blow by Mrs von der Leyen, who handed the role of the EU’s chief trade negotiator to another eurocrat. Ireland has been without a commissioner since Phil Hogan resigned from the post late last month.

Mr Hogan quit the £240,000-a-year role after becoming embroiled in a scandal over his failure to follow coronavirus health measures during a summer break to his home country.

Fine Gael MEP Ms McGuinness will take charge of the bloc’s financial services portfolio.
