Fine Gael is to consider running candidates in elections in Northern Ireland.

Delegates at the party’s Ard Fheis have voted to set up a working group to explore the idea of electing Fine Gael members north of the border.

However, the motion does not include elections to Westminster and only includes elections for local councils, the European Parliament and the Stormont Assembly.

Fergal Crinion from Raheny in Dublin, who proposed the move, says a true Irish party should try to represent all Irish citizens.
