Independent Alliance TD Sean Canney will "reflect on his position" after being told he can't have a second chance at being a minister in the current Dáil.

His comments came after it was agreed yesterday that Kevin 'Boxer' Moran will continue as Minister for the OPW and Flood Relief for the lifetime of the Government. When the Alliance entered Government in May 2016, the TDs agreed to share the role, with Mr Canney getting the first year after a coin toss.
