About our Simon Harris news

Latest news on Simon Harris, TD, who is currently serving as the Taoiseach of the Republic of Ireland and leader of Fine Gael since 2024.

Simon Harris emerged as the clear favourite to succeed Leo Varadkar as Ireland's prime minister following Varadkar's sudden resignation on 20 March 2024. Born on 17 October 1986 in Greystones, County Wicklow, Harris has been a rising star in Irish politics since his election to Dáil Éireann in 2011.

Our coverage of Harris on NewsNow will show all facets of his political style and strengths, such as his sharp debating skills, which could prove valuable in the upcoming local and European elections in June and the uncertain timing of the next general election.

Beyond his political career, our Simon Harris feed delves into his personal life, including his marriage to Caoimhe Wade, a cardiac nurse, and their two children, as well as his experiences living with Crohn's disease. As a young and dynamic leader, Harris is poised to shape Ireland's future, and our NewsNow feed offers comprehensive coverage of his journey, vision, and the challenges he will face as Ireland's next Taoiseach.
