National Coalition

The National Coalition was the name given to the coalition government formed in the Republic of Ireland in 1973 by the Fine Gael and Labour[?] parties. It remained in power for four years but was defeated in the 1977 general election, when the opposition Fianna Fáil party won the biggest landslide in Irish electoral history.

The National Coalition was led by Liam Cosgrave, the Fine Gael leader, as Taoiseach, and Brendan Corish[?]. the Labour leader, as Tánaiste.
