A TD who voted against the sale of Aer Lingus has been allowed to rejoin Labour's parliamentary party.
Michael McNamara lost the party whip when he voted against selling the Aer Lingus shares in the Dáil in May.
But he has now been permitted to rejoin the party, and is likely to be nominated to run for re-election in his native Clare.
Deputy McNamara missed Labour's think-in earlier in the week, as he was on honeymoon.
He recently married Sarah Hillery, whose father John ran against him for Fianna Fáil in 2011.
