Taoiseach continuing to defend former Tanaiste

Leo Varadkar says he still thinks Frances Fitzgerald did nothing wrong

Speaking to Marianne Finucane on RTE Leo Varadkar said he deeply  regrets the former Tanaiste's resignation.

Fine Gael averted a Christmas election when she handed in her resignation on Tuesday following questions over her handling of the Maurice McCabe controversy.

Motions of no confidence in her had been tabled by both Sinn Fein and Fianna Fail.

Leo Varadkar says they're still waiting on all the facts.
