DUBLIN (AFP) - The Irish political world was in shock Saturday after a member of Prime Minister Enda Kenny’s government was found dead in circumstances that police said were not suspicious. Shane McEntee, 56 - a junior minister at the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine - died Friday near his home in Meath, northeast Ireland. The Irish Times newspaper said he took his own life. McEntee was married to wife Kathleen and had three children. As well as his political role, he was also a well-known farmer and publican. Kenny said he was “devastated” by the death, which Irish police confirmed they were not treating as suspicious. “As minister of state, he brought great energy, diligence and enthusiasm to his role,” Kenny said in a statement.
