Just after 10am, Micheál Martin made one of his regular appearances on 'Today with Seán O'Rourke' on RTÉ Radio One. It's where he goes to make significant announcements.

Yesterday, he was updating the public, and presumably the Fianna Fáil membership, on his thoughts following the first official meeting between his party and Fine Gael.

The Fianna Fáil leader tried to ramp up pressure on acting Taoiseach Leo Varadkar to enter into more formal government formation talks.
