Are you a kerry man answering a question with a question is quite common down there. In answer to you question what ever leader on the top 3 parties is not in the next government loses his job.
If SF are not in the next government its the end of the line for MLMD.
The problem she will face is say FF are open to doing business but SF walk away if FF refuse to make a BP top priority,All depends. If as leader she delivers in and around what polls are suggesting at the moment and has approx oner third of available seats, she will be fine even if coalition talks lead nowhere. Maybe even in stronger position than if she was to go into coalition with Micky Martin - that would enrage alot of SF current support who are voting against FF/FG as much as they're voting for SF.
If however SF support softens considerbly and drops below 30% on election day, feeling may be that she lost an opportunity and a change of leadership might reenergise the party.
Soundy are ye told not to answer questions i answered your question,im only asking for your opinion, we are still living in a free and democratic country.

Many who voted SF based on a promise of change would be enraged if they dont take the opportunity,
MLMD could always spin a coalition with FF to SF voters as a temporary measure and come next election say 2030 they willNot sure about that. People who vote for change would be more enraged if they see Micky Martin and Marylou on the plinth announcing rotating taoiseach arrangement. Be some bantz on certain social media accounts mind you!!
Lot of core SF support would prefer to see party stay out of coalition with FFG and hope that they push on towards 40% before election after next and be in position to form coalition with Labour/Soc Dems and/or few Indos.
Against that, likes of MLMD, Eoin O' B and Pearse D must be tiring of constant opposition and would love to be part of government.
