Writing in the Sunday Independent today, Mr McDowell says the time to start on a new project is May or June of this year.

"The target must be the next General Election," he says. "While there will be a slate of independents in the next Dail, there is no coherent unifying or guiding spirit behind their support base.

"They are receiving support because they are non-party rather than on the basis of a clear trend in public thinking," he writes.
