On Independent.ie’s Floating Voter podcast Mr Martin said Fine Gael “overplayed” their role in Brexit negotiations and specifically took issue with Ms McEntee’s role.
“Take Helen McEntee for a second, Helen McEntee had no experience going into the job,” he said. “She was mental health first. I had dealings with Helen when she was in mental health,” she added.
Mr Martin went on to the minister did an “okay” job during Brexit but was not “directly involved in the negotiations”.
