  • Tanaiste Leo Varadkar has said the Government has got off to “a pretty rocky start” and there has been “a lot of unforced errors that could have been avoided”.
  • The Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael and Green Party coalition has been faced with a number of controversies since it was formed at the end of June.
  • This week the Government was forced into a U-turn over people on the Pandemic Unemployment Payment being able to travel abroad without having their payments halted, while the Green Party TD Neasa Hourigan voted against a Government Bill and subsequently resigned as her party’s chief whip.
