Mr Varadkar said that niether or his party are interested holding a snap election, but if one were to arise it would be down to a lack of support from both Fianna Fáil and the Sinn Féin.

The Taoiseach instead told reporters that he was more interested in Government business and improving the Irish economy.

Mr Varadkar said at the present time the Government are solely focused on creating jobs, improving the Irish healthcare system and addressing the current housing crisis.

The Taoiseach also stated that he is not interested in pulling any stunts and the only way an election will be held is if either Fianna Fáil or Sinn Féin submit a motion of no confidence.
