In an announcement after today's cabinet meeting, Eammon Ryan stated his intentions to step as leader of the Green Party, Minister for Transport, Environment, Climate and Communications and that he would not contest the next general election in the Dublin Bay South constituency.

Daniel McConnell, Editor of The Business Post and Sarah Carey, Columnist for the Irish Independent join Ian Guider, standing in for Matt, to discuss the possible reasons behind the Minister's choice to step down after a disappointing showing for the Green Party in the recent local and European elections.

Gary Murphy, Professor of Politics at the School of Law and Government in DCU and Aisling Moloney, political correspondent for the Irish Daily Mail join the show to discuss what the future holds for the Green Party and who might be chosen as Ryan's successor.
