After a fraught week for the Fine Gael government, where the possibility of a snap General Election was raised more than once, Tanaiste Frances Fitzgerald is expected to announce her resignation this afternoon, over her handling of a case involving a Garda whistleblower, Maurice McCabe.
The Tánaiste is expected to announce her resignation from Government this afternoon, just hours ahead of a no-confidence motion in the Dáil that threatens to bring down the Government.
Ms Fitzgerald has been under intense political pressure in recent days over the handling of the case of Garda whistleblower Maurice McCabe.
According to The Irish Times, Ms Fitzgerald indicated her intention to stand aside from her position during a Cabinet meeting on Tuesday where she faced a series questions from her colleagues.
