'Labour party will have nothing to do with Michael Lowry' says Alan Kelly

The Environment Minister, Alan Kelly, has again reiterated his position saying the Labour party will have nothing to do with Michael Lowry.

It follows days of speculation that the Independent Tipperary TD was one of a group of independents that Fine Gael may approach after the election to give them a majority.

However, last night the Taoiseach and Tánaiste moved to end speculation surrounding the involvement of Michael Lowry in the next Government.

Alan Kelly says his position is very clear: “I don’t know how clear I can be on this.

“I mean, this has been running for three days.

“Categorically, the Labour party will not have anything to do with Deputy Lowry.”
