« BackDanny Healy-Rae says ministerial position isn’t being ruled out in talks

Danny Healy Rae 1Deputy Danny Healy-Rae says neither he nor his fellow TD and brother, Michael, would rule out a ministerial position as part of their support for a new government.

The Healy-Raes who represent Kerry are among 15 independent TDs who’ve been in talks with Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil.

Danny Healy-Rae says the independents were pressurised by Fine Gael and to a lesser extent by Fianna Fáil.

Deputy Healy-Rae claims that the two largest parties are annoyed by the growing power of independents.

He says non-party TDs have upset the political applecart which has seen Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael alternate as the main party in government for generations.
