Donegal deputies split in Fine Gael leadership battle

It seems Donegal's two Fine Gael deputies will be on different sides when the party meets today to consider a motion of confidence in leader Enda Kenny.

The parliamentary party is effectively split down the middle, with supporters of Enda Kenny and supporters of former Deputy Leader Richard Bruton both claiming they will carry the day.

Earlier this week, Donegal South West Deputy Dinny Mc Ginley became one of the first deputies to pledge support to Enda Kenny, saying the timing of a leadership push when Fianna Fail are on the ropes was crazy.

However, as expected, Donegal North East TD Joe Mc Hugh has tasken the opposite view, he says having considered the views of his supporters, the concensus he's getting is it's time for change.
