Taoiseach Enda Kenny has said he does not want to waste people’s time talking about the Fine Gael rebels – in a continuation of his hardline approach to them.

It came after Junior Minister Brian Hayes said that he hoped the five TDs and two Senators who are now out of the Fine Gael parliamentary party for voting against the abortion legislation would eventually be re-admitted.

However, Mr Kenny showed no signs of welcoming back the rebels.

“I don’t want to waste your time or anybody else’s time by talking about something that has no impact on those who are unemployed, on those who are in Priory Hall situations and on those who are in mortgage distress,” he said.

He was speaking after opening the International Society for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect’s European conference in Dublin.
