« BackMichael Healy-Rae says he and his brother will speak with any party to help form government

Michael Healy-Rae says he is willing to enter into talks with any party to help form a new government.


The Independent TD and his brother Danny Healy-Rae were elected on the first and second counts of the General Election in the five seater Kerry constituency.


Michael received the highest number of first preference votes in the county and nationally, with 20,378 people giving him their number 1 vote.

He says political parties and Independents have gotten their mandate and there is a duty on them to now form a stable government as the electorate do not want another election.
