A Fine Gael Minister has accused Sinn Féin of cosying up to Fianna Fáil ahead of the general election.
Paudie Coffey has said that the two parties are trying to come together in a bid to form a government after the vote.
Last week a leaked ad commisioned by the Labour party caused some outrage, after depicting Gerry Adams and Michael Martin getting married.
Minister of State Paudie Coffey has said a vote for Fianna Fáil may put Sinn Féin into government.
"It's very obvious now that Sinn Féin are cosying up to Fianna Fáil ahead of the general election, already six members of the Fianna Fáil front bench have said that they would be open to a coalition with Sinn Féin
"So it has become quite clear now that a vote for Fianna Fáil in the elections could in fact put Sinn Féin into Government."
