Fianna Fáil has appointed its negotiating team for government formation talks.
It is made up of Dara Calleary, Anne Rabbitte, Michael McGrath, Barry Cowen, Darragh O’Brien and Thomas Byrne.
In a statement, party leader Micheál Martin said he was pleased to announce the group.
He said: “This group will co-ordinate meetings with other parties and independents and work to develop agreed policy action to deal with the range of crises facing the country.
“They will also co-ordinate input from the front bench and the parliamentary party.”
Mr Martin said that government formation “will not be an easy process, but it is a hugely important one.”
“We will approach the process in a positive, calm and constructive way, as we work to deliver a change of Government and a new approach in the areas of housing, health, cost of living and climate change.”
