Opposition Parties Say Coveney Should Resign

The Foreign Affairs Minister is facing mounting calls from the opposition to resign, ahead of a no confidence motion in the Dail tomorrow.

The motion centres around Simon Coveney's handling of the appointment of Katherine Zappone to a UN Special Envoy role.
He's faced criticism for offering the newly created job to a former minister without it being publicly advertised.
Government ministers have described the vote as a "publicity stunt" but Labour has indicated it will be supporting the Sinn Fein motion.

And Social Democrats co-leader, Catherine Murphy, says they'll also be backing it
