Mr Martin after a deal with FG to was given the gift of three appointees for the Seanad, and chose the founder of suicide prevention centre Pieta House Joan Freeman, chief executive of Alzheimer’s Ireland Colette Kelleher and businessman Pádraig Ó Céidigh.

The Fianna Fáil leader said the three were specialists in areas that required a national focus.

This is in sharp contrast to FG's appointees which quite shockingly included my local TD Mr Ray Butler, who's record isn't too hot and the not so good doctor, James Reilly who I happened to hear on Drivetime say he was looking forward to working with the new minister in health, Simon Harris (the McDonalds I'd just eaten almost landed back up on my lap listening to his BS). There's speculation he will now be appointed Fine Gael leader for the Seanad. Do FG have a death wish I wonder ...

Mr Martin said (the IT are reporting) he did not want to appoint Fianna Fáil members and wanted to take a thematic approach in his nominations.

Thumbs up to FF?

I dunno, seems there's a difference now.
