DUBLIN (Reuters) - Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar on Thursday named Foreign Minister Simon Coveney as deputy prime minister, replacing Frances Fitzgerald, whose resignation over a policing scandal on Tuesday allowed the government to avoid a snap election. Varadkar also appointed Heather Humphreys as Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation and Josepha Madigan as Minister for Culture. (Reporting by Conor Humphries; Editing by Angus MacSwan)
