Soc Dems co-leader is Kildare North TD, Catherine Murphy.

The co-leader of the Social Democrats, a Kildare TD, says her party may consider going in to government with Sinn Fein.

The SocDems, set up 6 years ago, has just held its think-in ahead of the beginning of the new Dáil term.

It has returned 6 deputies to Leinster House in the last General Election, and has increased the number of councillors in local authorities across the country.

This summer, however, a group of over a dozen members, including Kildare Cllr., Chris Pender, called for a leadership review.

That request was not formally submitted to the party.

Kildare North TD and party Co-Leader, Catherine Murphy has been speaking to Kildare Today.

She described this as a "storm in a thimble", and says the party is focused on getting in to government.


Deputy Murphy joined Clem Ryan on Tuesday's edition of the programme
