Mayo based Minister Michael Ring believes both Fine Gael & Fianna Fail will pass tomorrow's programme for Government but is not so sure which way the Green Party will vote.

The leaders of Fine Gael, Fianna Fáil and the Green Party are going to meet later to discuss the ministerial and departmental structure of that government.

The results of a postal ballot on the deal agreed between Fianna Fail, Fine Gael and the Green Party will be known tomorrow.

Minister Ring says as the only Fine Gael TD who topped the poll in the country is hoping that a position can be offered to him.

Meanwhile, Minister Ring has today announced that he has allocated €524,116 to support the development of proposals for two significant Mayo rural development initiatives.

Minister Ring made the announcement under Category 2 of his Department’s Rural Regeneration and Development Fund, a key component of Project Ireland 2040.

€355,764 has been allocated to develop the Newport Regeneration Project while a further €168,352 has been allocated to develop Ballyhaunis Community Vision.

More details on this funding will be on our Evening Edition programme at 5.30pm.
