Sinn Féin's negotiators have told other parties it wants to form a coalition government with Fianna Fáil in private talks held in recent days.

The party has signalled its preference for what is being dubbed a "left-led" government with Micheál Martin's party if it cannot form a minority left-wing government without Fine Gael or Fianna Fáil, according to TDs who have held discussions with Sinn Féin's negotiators.
