Sligo-Leitrim Fianna Fail TD Marc MacSharry has rejected suggestions by Fine Gael politicians that Leo Varadkar should get the first stint as Taoiseach in a coalition deal involving the two parties.

Fine Gael TDs and senators, including ministers, are pushing for Mr Varadkar to go first in any rotating Taoiseach agreement, some arguing he should stay in place through the coronavirus crisis.

Fianna Fáil TDs have insisted party leader Micheál Martin should take the job at the start of a coalition, arguing that Mr Varadkar getting the first stint in office would not be approved by their membership.

Deputy MacSharry told Midwest News that as the largest party in the coalition talks, Michael Martin should get the first stint as Taoiseach should a government be formed.
