Rebel Fine Gael TDs have formed the Reform Alliance as a parliamentary group.
Already nicknamed 'The RA', the group is seeking recognition in the Dail.
The group will have a logo and distinct branding.
It will also be pooling its resources and dividing up responsibilities for putting forward parliamentary questions, drafting bills, speaking on the order of business and sharing out media interviews.
The group will not be applying a whip on votes.
The Reform Alliance has a Twitter account @reform_alliance, registered this week by Denis Naughten.
