BREAKING: Leo Varadkar arrives in the RDS and reiterates Fine Gael hasn’t changed its position regarding a Sinn Fein coalition




After failing to top the poll in his constituency, out-going Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has arrived at the RDS where the Dublin count is ongoing.

It’s been a tough day for Varadkar, as a number of high-profile Fine Gael TDs are involved in serious battles to try and hold onto their seats. Noel Rock has already conceded his seat has been lost.

Speaking at the RDS, Varadkar said that it is now clear that a three-party system in not in place in the country but he thought that it would be difficult to see what would happen when it comes down to trying to form a government.

He said that he would have to wait and see what the lie of the land is once the seats have been filled and, in an interesting point given the success of Sinn Fein, he said that his position regarding going into government with them has not changed, in other words that Fine Gael would not be going into government with Sinn Fein.
