It's a numbers game as the Taoiseach's Cabinet reshuffle moves towards a Dail vote on Tuesday.

Overnight, the Government got a boost, when Independent TD Noel Grealish confirmed he'd back the Government in key votes - until Brexit is sorted.

 

The Government's still not out of the woods - with every potential vote being counted.

Sinn Fein President Mary Lou McDonald says it's 'make your mind up time' for Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael - saying the Confidence and Supply arrangement is a 'political con job' which has led to uncertainty at a crucial time for the country; with Brexit, housing and health in the balance.

Yesterday the Taoiseach confirmed his reshuffle and a new junior ministry was announced for Independent TD Sean Canney, in a move to shore up the Government, and bring their number of Dail votes to just 2 shy of the vital 57.

Then last night, Independent Noel Grealish confirmed he'd back the Government in key votes until Brexit is sorted - giving Michael Lowry a deciding vote to give the Government a majority - and making the prospect of an election before Christmas, less likely.
