Sinn Féin will see its coffers boosted to the tune of between €561,000 and almost €1.2m in taxpayer cash, depending on whether it goes into government or stays in opposition.

Meanwhile, Fianna Fáil is set to lose a large chunk of its State funding due to its seat losses in Election 2020, no matter which path Micheál Martin chooses to take.

And Fine Gael will get a slight increase in State funds if it goes into opposition.
