Government wins motion of confidence but Taoiseach Enda Kenny's days appeared to be numbered

The Government won a motion of confidence in the Dáil last night - but it now appears Taoiseach Enda Kenny's days are numbered.

The first moves to replace him as Fine Gael leader came from Leo Varadkar and Simon Coveney, who called for the Parliamentary Party to make preparations 'soon' for a general election.

It's being seen as a signal to Mr Kenny that he needs to indicate when he'll stand down.

Mr Kenny went into the Dáil and offered a full apology to Sergeant Maurice McCabe for the way he has been treated.

Minister Varadkar referred to Maurice McCabe as a hero and insisted Fine Gael has to restore trust with the people
