Eamon O’Cuiv wants Fianna Fáil and Sinn Féin to join forces
Its in a bid to reunite the party that his grandfather Eamon de Valera split.
O’Cuiv said the parties are suited because they are both republican.
The former Fianna Fáil deputy leader says there would be no problem with Gerry Adam’s parties’ recent history
However he has acknowledged that the parties share a different stance on the EU fiscal treaty with Fianna Fail supporting a yes vote and Sinn Fein standing fimr in the NO camp.
