Reports Fine Gael Is Blocking Coveney/Vradkar TV Debate

There are reports that Fine Gael is blocking a planned TV leaders debate between Simon Coveney and Leo Varadkar.

That’s despite the two front-runners previously saying that they’d be happy to do so.

It comes amid speculation that Enda Kenny is to step down as early as next week.


According to the The Irish Daily Mail, RTE asked Fine Gael headquarters about the logistics around the event, but were told that it cannot go ahead.
