An Taoiseach Mr Enda Kenny will be getting a European award in Berlin next month.
Mr Kenny has been named “Golden Victoria European of the Year 2012” and will receive his award on November 8th next.

The German Magazine Publishers Association (VDZ) state Mr. Kenny is getting this accolade because of his strong  commitment to Europe and his “commitment to European ideals both as Prime Minister and throughout his many years in public life.

In a statement VDZ said “This award acknowledges the achievements not only of Enda Kenny, but Ireland and the Irish people.”

Previous recipients of this award were European Commission President José Manuel Barroso and Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk.

Ireland will also assume the EU Presidency for the 7th occasion since joining the Union, this year, with 2013 also marking the 40th anniversary since gaining membership in 1973.
