A Sligo Leitrim TD has expressed his confidence that a new government will be formed between Fine Gael, Fianna Fail and the Green Party.
It’s emerged that housing is proving to be a stumbling block in government formation talks.
The Green Party’s looking for more social housing, while Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael want more accommodation for first-time buyers.
The parties will discuss the issue again today during the ninth day of talks, along with local government and climate change.
Sligo Leitrim Fine Gael TD Frank Feighan is confident a government will be formed and another general election will be averted.
