Will the independents support Fine Gael?
Dublin South-West TD has confirmed her support. Likely to be a minister linked to Education and Children.
Likely to accept a deal with Fine Gael, though yet to confirm. Has his eyes on a newly formed ministry for Rural Affairs.
Made it clear at a meeting of Independents that he would not be supporting Fine Gael, but may be swayed by his more politically experienced brother.
Most unlikely. Has a number of issues, including economic policies at odds with her political beliefs.
Under pressure from constituents not to back Fine Gael. Unclear if Mr Kenny could convince him; would demand a ministerial role.
Kevin ‘Boxer’ Moran
First-time TD, almost certain to support an FG-led minority government.
Extremely unlikey. The Waterford TD has severe difficulties entering government without firm promises on hospital services.
Still on the fence. Reluctant, unless all members of the Independent Alliance accept an FG deal. Maybe the lure of power will change his mind.
Will accept a deal. The Galway East TD is competing for the position of Minister for Rural Affairs.
Tipped for the role of Minister for Rural Affairs, but now unlikely because of delays in provision of rural broadband.
Cork South West TD remains undecided. Will have reservations about entering a government led by Mr Kenny.
As a former Fianna Fáil TD, Mr McGrath found it difficult to sit around a table with Fine Gael, will almost certainly not go in.
Will accept a minority government deal.Could be given a junior minister role in Department of Health.
The former Fine Gael TD lost party whip in 2011 but is now likely to return to the fold. Will also be hoping for a ministerial position for his support.
Undecided. Has difficulties on the Eighth Amendment. Likely to leave his decision to the last minute.
