Housing proving stumbling block in Government formation talks

Housing is proving to be a stumbling block in government formation talks.

The Green Party's looking for more social housing, while Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael want more accommodation for first-time buyers.

The parties will discuss the issue again today during the ninth day of talks, along with local government and climate change.

Negotiators were in full agreement during a session on arts, heritage and the Gaeltacht yesterday.
