The Renua Ireland leader says it is appalling that the Taoiseach Enda Kenny is even considering doing business with Michael Lowry.

Lucinda Creighton said that she wants nothing to do with politicians like Mr Lowry, who have had findings made against them by tribunals.

Mr Kenny and Tánaiste Joan Burton have distanced themselves from Mr Lowry - after speculation that they would do a deal with him to get back into government.

While yesterday the Children's Minister James Reilly refused to rule out a Fine Gael government propped up by the Independent TD.

Earlier this week, Mr Lowry told Newstalk Lunchtime he had not had any discussions about the upcoming election with any party.

But Ms Creighton says even considering it is appalling.
