Enda Kenny is now leading the country in a caretaker capacity, after the 32nd Dail failed to appoint a new Taoiseach.
Neither Mr Kenny, Micheal Martin, Gerry Adams or Richard Boyd Barrett secured enough votes from TDs to become Taoiseach.
The Dail has now been adjourned until the 22nd of March, when there will be an update on talks to form a Government.
Enda Kenny travelled to Aras an Uachtarain and resigned last night.
Meanwhile. outgoing Junior Minister Joe McHugh has stated that it's every TDs responsibility to form a new Government and not just Fine Gael and Fianna Fail.
Deputy Joe McHugh says it's time for every politican to step up to the plate.........
