  • Fianna Fáil's Michael McGrath has said he hopes that Seán Ó Fearghaíl will be returned as Ceann Comhairle and that if he is, the loss of his vote is "unlikely to be a decisive factor in the formation of government" numbers.

    Mr McGrath told RTÉ's News at One that it will take a number of weeks, not months, to form a government.

    He said his party is "determined to get down to business" but said it is vital to get it right.
