It seems that the Irish Minister for Foreign Affairs didn’t say what everyone thought he said – As reported in the Irish Examiner, in the Dáil yesterday, Dermot Ahern claimed “At no stage did I postulate a scenario that Sinn Féin would go into coalition with Fianna Fáil.” – Fine Gael’s foreign affairs spokesperson Bernard Allen responded with “Fianna Fáil… would do a deal with the devil to stay in power.”
