Public Expenditure Minister Michael McGrath’s credentials for becoming the next leader of Fianna Fáil have been somewhat limited by one simple factor – geography.

The Cork minister not only shares a county but also a constituency with current Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin, and for some in the party this excludes him from any real chance of succeeding the Taoiseach when he decides to step aside.
