Can Ireland’s Sinn Fein Form a Government?

The day after Sinn Fein seized the popular vote and the largest ever share of parliamentary seats following the February 8 election, newspapers were plastered with headlines like 'Win Fein' and the 'Shinners Take It All.' It was a massive left turn as a large section of the electorate spurned the two centre-right parties that had taken turns governing for nearly a century. But it also left Ireland without a ruling party and its three leading ones maneuvering to form a government. So what’s next for Ireland? Can Sinn Fein party led by Mary Lou McDonald cobble together a ruling coalition?
