The man many have tipped as Taoiseach Micheál Martin’s successor as leader of Fianna Fáil is in a candid and optimistic mood. Jim O’Callaghan fully supports the easing of restrictions in the coming days after six weeks of oppressive lockdown.

“People need a bit of relief,” explains the Fianna Fáil TD, affectionately known as ‘Big Jim’ to his friends and colleagues in Dáil Éireann and the Four Courts.

“It’s going to be a different Christmas. But the most important thing is that we put in place a plan for the New Year when we’re going to roll out the new vaccine. I’m pleased to see the Government have a team in place. I want to see more from that team. I want to see as much of that team in the New Year as I’ve seen of Nphet this year.”
