The Taoiseach Enda Kenny is insisting he has very clearly ruled out a coalition with Fianna Fáil.

Yesterday Mr Kenny appeared not to definitely rule out the option when he refused to say if he would not be Toiseach in a so-called 'grand coalition' of the two parties.

Earlier the Tánaiste and Labour leader Joan Burton said she had spoken to the Taoiseach about the issue last night - and expected him to clarify his position today.

Launching Fine Gael's health policy this afternoon, Mr Kenny insisted he has been clear on the matter.
