The Communications Minister has said the Taoiseach was right to apologise for his performance on the radio interview he gave on Tuesday.
Eamon Ryan and the Green Party are holding their think-in in Carlow today, where Brian Cowen's controversial radio interview is likely to come up for discussion.
The junior coalition partner has been silent so far on the interview. Party leader John Gormley said this morning that this was due to the Green Party's desire to focus on the policy issues facing government.
His party colleague Minister Eamon Ryan insisted the furore had not de-stabilised the Government.
"I wish it had not happened (but) I don't believe it will destabilise the Government," he said.
