Leo Varadkar says Fine Gael will only enter government as a last resort. The acting Taoiseach's comments come ahead of a meeting of Fine Gael's Parliamentary Party this afternoon. Mr. Varadkar says Sinn Féin's Mary Lou McDonald should try to form a government of the left.  He also put it to Fianna Fáil to try to form a rainbow coalition with the Greens, Labour, the Social Democrats and Independents. What form would you like the new government to take? Ciara chats to Daniel McConnell, Political Editor, Irish Examiner and hears from listeners.
