Micheál Martin today ruled out any possibility of the parties ever going into coalition together, despite Éamon Ó Cuív saying they would be natural partners. Is this the right move by Martin?

IT MAY NOT be on the table for quite some time, but Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin said today that he is against the party ever going into coalition with Sinn Féin.

Martin made the comments this afternoon after backbench FF TD Éamon Ó Cuív said  that Sinn Féin would be “natural coalition partners” to Fianna Fáil because of their shared republican ideology. However Martin said he doesn’t see SF as a true republican party.

Gerry Adams has previously said that Sinn Féin has no intention of being a junior coalition partner to either Fianna Fáil or Fine Gael.

So what do you think? Is Micheál Martin right to rule out coalition with Sinn Féin?
