FF leader calls on Minister Reilly to resign - RTÉ News

'He said Minister Reilly "should step aside" as his "position had become untenable".'

Does it matter what Martin thinks?

Why call for Reilly to resign, when leaving him in there arguably damages him more?

Is Martin hopping onto the Shortall bandwagon, after her indirect call on the government to get rid of Reilly?

Says the fairly useless Minister of Health in his time. This is just recycled news.

Martin is a joke. His position as FF leader is untenable because of his prominent role in the treason cabinet of the last government.

Reilly should have gone long before now. If his self-serving behaviour is typical of FG then I can't wait for FF to get back in power.

I'm torn here between the neck of Martin who never took responsibility when he was in charge of health and my dislike of Reilly who's stumbling from one mess to another.

Can't both of them resign ?

Agreed, but this element isn't.
TBH not remotely exercised by it and I suspect the population at large will be just as indifferent. We know he did it and when really doesn't matter.

M Martain is right,the fact that Reilly is lumbering from one crisis to another while stuck in defaulters diary is fairly obvious.reilly is suffering from reverse Midas syndrome at this stage,where everything he touches turns to crap.
Martain is providing competent leadership,especially this week,where his call on the Galway case was right on the money.
It's nice to see the FG knuckle daggers on here resort to the usual whatabotery and mopery.

Does anyone really care what that idiot thinks?
He's not an idiot. However, as a cabinet minister he has fingerprints on our country's economic depression.

I never said I was exercised by it; I just thought these sort of developments were what this site was about.

Martin is right about Reilly.

But Martin claimed the minister was never responsible when he was in charge.
