A Fianna Fáil TD says there is disquiet within the party over a potential extension to the confidence and supply agreement with Fine Gael.
John McGuinness says that during their time in power, Fine Gael have not served the people well.
It comes as party leader Micheál Martin is due to meet with Taoiseach Leo Varadkar today to discuss the future of the deal keeping the government in place.
A Fianna Fáil review of the agreement has highlighted serious issues around health and housing.
Deputy McGuinness says that his concerns are known within the party:
"People are quite well aware that there is disquiet within the parliamentary party and there is certainly disquiet within the broader membership of the party because they see us as being in opposition but yet being in government at the same time.
"It is true to say we get blamed for a lot of what is happening in government," he added.
The Taoiseach and the Fianna Fáil leader met late last night to discuss the confidence and supply deal.
The two leaders will meet again in the next few days to talk about the future of the deal keeping the government in place.
A number of Fianna Fáil TDs at last night’s parliamentary party meeting said they were given the impression there would be an extension to the deal.
