Two Green Party TDs have voted against the Government in the Dáil this evening.

Neasa Hourigan and Patrick Costello voted in favour of a Sinn Féin motion calling for the new National Maternity Hospital to be built on publicly-owned land.

The rest of the Government TDs abstained on the motion.

The two TDs are expected to be sanctioned for defying the party whip.

The motion passed in the Dáil earlier with 56 votes in favour and 10 against.

Sinn Féin meanwhile is calling on the Government to engage in "high-level talks with St Vincent's Healthcare Group about serious unresolved issues around land ownership."
