Sinn Féin has been accused of planning to hold "Trump-style" rallies rather than focusing on trying to form a left-wing government.

Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael have criticised Mary Lou McDonald's party for a series of public rallies to be held in the next fortnight.

Fianna Fáil TD Thomas Byrne said: "These Trump-style rallies don't indicate a party that is seriously preparing for government."
