TD Niamh Smyth says stable government is vital to protect the people of Cavan and Monaghan

Fianna Fáil TD Niamh Smyth says that it is “vital that Ireland has a stable government”, particularly given the stalemate at Stormont and the uncertainty in Westminster.

This comes after Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said that May 2020 was the “right moment” for the next general election.

Smyth also said that the current parliament has been very productive and that Fianna Fáil has contributed to that.

She told Northern Sound that the government needed “to carry on as stable as possible” to protect people in the Cavan and Monaghan region, who she says are at the “coal face” of any negative Brexit implications.

Smyth also spoke to Northern Sound about Fianna Fáil’s annual think-in, and said the on-going beef protests were top of the agenda.
