Poll: Would you support a coalition between Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil?

The age-old question…

TALK OF A potential coalition between Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil is back on the agenda this week as the Soldiers of Destiny grapple over whether to do business with their civil war rivals.

Fianna Fáil TD Willie O’Dea told TheJournal.ie yesterday that he wouldn’t rule out a deal with Fine Gael, saying he’d support any government that could ensure Ireland’s economic recovery.

But the party’s new director of elections, Billy Kelleher, is quoted in today’s Irish Times as saying it would “probably” remain in opposition if it couldn’t form a majority coalition.

Though Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin has repeatedly ruled out a potential coalition with Fine Gael, there seems to be less certainty about the matter in his own party ranks.

This morning, we’re asking: Would you support a coalition between Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil?
