Sinn Féin leader Gerry Adams has disputed claims that his party is willing to enter government with Fianna Fáil after the election.
The Labour Leader Eamon Gilmore said he believed Mr Adams wanted to do a deal with Fianna Fáil after the Sinn Féin president said earlier that if he could do a deal with Ian Paisley, he could do a deal with anybody.
Mr Gilmore said Labour was the only party to ruled out the possiblity of putting Brian Cowen's party back into government after the election.
But this afternoon Mr Adams said Sinn Féin will not be doing business with either Brian Cowen or Enda Kenny:
"I don't envisage us being in a coalition, if we had a mandate, with Fianna Fáil, or with Fianna Gael for that matter," he said.
