Meath East TD and Minister for European Affairs, Thomas Byrne, has reiterated that he does not agree with the call from the Slane FF cumann for Taoiseach Micheál Martin to resign as party leader.

Speaking on LMFM’s Michael Reade show earlier today, Byrne said, ‘ Everyone is entitled to their opinion and there is different views on all these issues.

‘There would be different views within Fianna Fáil, let’s be honest about it you are never going to have a situation where everybody is singing off the one hymn sheet and that’s the reality of it.

‘Internal issues are fascinating and all that but the biggest issue that is on the mind of the Taoiseach at them moment is getting that vaccine into as many arms as possible.’
