Optimism issues? May 5, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
It’s a busy day what with elections in the North, in the UK and so on. Meanwhile in the state what’s going on? Well, what a broad range of Independents are in the mix in relation to government formation:

The two sides ended discussions after 10.30pm with further meetings planned for Thursday.
The five rural TDs, the Independent Alliance, Maureen O’Sullivan and Michael Healy-Rae will be presented with a Programme for Government on Thursday morning.

Meanwhile is Katherine Zappone still involved?
