THE 10 Fine Gael Mayo county councillors are due to have a meeting to air their views on the possibility of the party forming a government with Fianna Fáil.

Councillor Jarlath Munnelly confirmed to The Connaught Telegraph that he will be calling a meeting of all elected local authority members so that their views on the matter can be aired as Enda Kenny and Michael Ring go forward to represent Mayo as Fine Gael TDs in the 32nd Dáil.

It is understood that the Fianna Fáil county councillors, who also number 10, may have a similar meeting so as to give their views to their two newly elected TDs, Dara Calleary and Lisa Chambers.

Ahead of the election, both parties vehemently ruled out the idea of going into coalition to form a government. However, given the combined number of TDs both parties have had elected, a FF-FG alliance looks like the most likely route to stable government.
