There is a great irony in Independent TD Katherine Zappone having a central role in a Fine Gael-led Government.

She was never supposed to be in this Dáil at all – but, after two days of rechecks and recounts, “stole” her seat from under the noses of Fine Gael in 2016.

Legal eagles were drafted in as every single ballot paper was pored over repeatedly before the Fine Gael candidate, Anne-Marie Dermody, accepted her loss.
