Government Chief Whip Paul Keogh has today denied that a rift is forming between the Coalition parties, insisting that "no-one feels unloved".

Taoiseach Enda Kenny yesterday urged members of Fine Gael and Labour to "calm down" after some Ddeputies made negative comments about their colleagues.

"I love all my Fine Gael TDs, and Labour as well, who have a very good, close relationship - loving relationship, that is, a very good relationship," he said.

"I can assure you there's no-one feels unloved in both Labour and Fine Gael.
