The Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin has said the party will scrap Irish Water and water charges if elected to Government.
Micheál Martin made the promise last night in his closing address to the party faithful at an Ard Fheis in Dublin.
He also said his party would deliver an 'Ireland for All', with costed promises that he said would not favour the wealthy.
He said: "We're going to take a lead…We're going to get an independent analysis of our commitments, which reviews the accuracy and affordability of our costings and their impact on economic growth.
"We will publish this with the manifesto. There will be no auction politics, no uncosted promises, no proposals which could damage the economy, and I challenge the other parties to follow our lead."
