Taoiseach Defends Party Position After Defeat In Dublin Bay South By Election

Micheál Martin has defended his position as Fianna Fáil leader after damning internal criticism.

The Taoiseach says he's open to an in-person meeting of his parliamentary party to discuss its terrible by-election result in Dublin Bay South.

A number of TDs are willing to sign a motion of no confidence in Micheál Martin - but not enough to trigger a vote.

The Taoiseach says he plans to engage with everyone - including his critics.
