Fine Gael TD Olwyn Enright has announced she will not be contesting the next general election.
The Laois Offaly deputy - who was first elected to the Dail in 2002 - says she has taken the decision because her personal circumstances have changed.
The 36 year old was one of the Fine Gael frontbenchers behind the failed leadership heave against Enda Kenny in June.
However she's rejecting it had anything to do with her decision.
Deputy Enright is married to Donegal Deputy Joe McHugh.
