Taoiseach Enda Kenny has said 3,000 schools could have been built every year for the money that was originally supposed to fund the promissory note.

Mr Kenny said it struck him forceably when he opened a €1 million school in the west of Ireland what alternative projects could be carried out with the money.

The Taoiseach opened Muscular Dystrophy Ireland’s (MDI) headquarters and “home from home” building in Chapelizod this morning.

He confessed to feeling “inadequate” after hearing testimonies from people with the muscle-wasting illness that leads to disability.

Such people “deal every day with a scale of challenges that those who don’t have that scale of challenges take for granted".
