Sinn Féin got almost one in four of all votes cast in Election 2020. In any normal circumstances, Ms McDonald would have spent last night batting off competing Valentine's Day coalition offers from Micheál Martin and Leo Varadkar.

Instead she was left railing against the "old boys" club of Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael, who she accused of failing to respect Sinn Féin's democratic mandate.
