Mary Lou McDonald doesn’t rule out future coalition with Fianna Fáil or Fine Gael

Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald has refused to rule out a future coalition Government with Fianna Fáil or Fine Gael.

McDonald said the “very best outcome” of the next general election would be one without Fianna Fáil or Fine Gael.


However, she refused to rule out Sinn Féin going into a future coalition Government with either Fianna Fáil or Fine Gael.

“The best Government that can emerge from the next election is one without Fianna Fáil or Fine Gael. The worst outcome, as I predicted the last time, is a Government with Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael together,” she said.

“Even I could not have envisaged how chaotic and how poor this administration would now be.”


McDonald said the next Government of Ireland should be “of the left”.
