Talks between Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil on the formation of a minority Government are to reconvene later today.

It's after Fianna Fáil last night admitted defeat in its own attempts to form a government led by Micheal Martin.

14 Independents who had been talking to both FG and FF all chose to abstain from yesterday’s vote FOR Taoiseach in the Dail.

Fianna Fáil TDs have now agreed to re-enter talks with their historical rival, to 'facilitate a minority government' with Enda Kenny in charge.

But significant gaps remain in policy, and differences over Irish Water could yet impact on the chances of a Fine Gael-led minority government formation.

The fourth vote for Taoiseach of the 32nd Dail takes place next Wednesday.

As well as talking to Independents in the coming days, Fine Gael will now seek to persuade the Labour Party and the Greens to vote for Enda Kenny and participate in a minority government.

Speaking to Midwest News this morning Mayo Fianna Fail deputy Dara Calleary said his party are prepared to facilitate a minority government of Fine Gale and Independents.

The details of how that will work, will emerge during negotiations that will get underway today.

He denied that Michael Martin’s attempts to force the hands of the Independent deputies in yesterday’s vote for Taoiseach backfired
