In a country where 2 political parties, who have been hating each other for nearly a century, have always dominated elections. One has always formed the government while the other the main opposition. However, in 2016 the Irish people will go to the polls for government number 32. At this point there is no other possibility for a majority government but to have a Fine Gael/Fianna F"il coalition.

You didn't make an point relevant to the debate at all. It is a problem that with 2 years still to go to an election we already know our faith. Short of a rainbow coalition, which can never happen, Fianna Fail and Fine Gael will make up the next government, with the leader of the larger of the two becoming Taoiseach (Enda).

In a country were there is now only 4 parties with decent representation a Rainbow Coalition is not applicable.
Sinn F"in will not be accepted into government by any of the larger parties and will not get a majority as many believe they copitulated by signing the treaty with the British, leaving only the Labour party who will suffer in 2016 and will not retain enough seats to make a viable partner in government.

A likely result will be;
Fine Gael - 28% - 44 seats
FIanna Fail - 22% - 35 seats
Sinn Fein - 21% - 33 seats
Labour - 10% - 16 seats
Independents - 19% - 30 seats
