Some quick Ireland news to bring you.The ruling coalition has lost another supporter (via Lorcan Roche Kelly), MP Mattie McGrath of Tipperary South, bringing the coalition’s majority to a razor thin 82-80.

Once again, as with when it lost a supporter on Friday, it comes down to spending decisions.

A collapse of the government seems imminent, which is exactly what the country (and all of Europe) doesn’t need right now.
