Paschal Donohoe and Darragh O’Brien ‘excited’ to face Sinn Féin no-confidence fight

Ministers have said they look forward to standing their ground against a no-confidence motion by Sinn Féin in the Dáil next week.

Arty leader Mary Lou McDonald confirmed this morning that Sinn Féin is filing the application after the government lost its majority after Fine Gael TD resigned from the Fine Gael whip.

Housing Secretary Darragh O’Brien said the Government will have next week to show what ministers have achieved so far.

“I’m actually looking forward to the opportunity next week when Sinn Féin wants to take their time to table a motion of censure, discuss that with them and show them what we’ve done, particularly on housing,” he said.

“Next week actually gives us an opportunity to present to all the different ministers what the government has actually done in all the different sectors that we have been working on.”

Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe said the government was not interested in “sowing the seeds of division”.

“We will go to the Dáil next week, we will put forward our efforts at a time when the country has been so much tested. We recognize the challenges that so many are facing right now, but we are interested in helping and not sowing the seeds of division,” Mr Donohoe said.

It comes as the Taoiseach was forced to answer the phone last night after 30 Fianna Fáil TDs and Senators met secretly to discuss party policy while Micheál Martin was in Ukraine.

Fianna Fáil ministers denied it was secret and said it was a sign a “healthy” party was communicating and working together.

Minister Donohoe said he had full confidence in Fianna Fáil as a coalition partner and joked that he hoped to be invited to the next secret Fianna Fáil meeting.

“I have absolute confidence in the stability of this government.

“This is a cohesive, effective government that has met extraordinary challenges. Yes, we have political parties and within these political parties, of course, there are debates and discussions,” he added. Paschal Donohoe and Darragh O’Brien ‘excited’ to face Sinn Féin no-confidence fight
