Clare FM Catch-Up: Programme For Government Deal Is Struck


Monday afternoon saw the final agreement of a Programme for Government among Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael and the Green Party. While the deal has yet to be approved by the membership of the various parties, the three are now on course to form the next government, with Micheál Martin as its first Taoiseach, handing over to Leo Varadkar in December 2022.

On Tuesday’s Morning Focus, we got extensive political reaction, firstly from Fianna Fáil’s Cathal Crowe and from Fine Gael’s Joe Carey.

Next, Inagh Green Party Councillor Roisín Garvey (21:15) gave her take, before we heard from Sinn Féin TD Violet-Anne Wynne (32:52).
