DUBLIN (Reuters) - Ireland's main opposition party will seek to initiate a review of its expiring deal to support Prime Minister Leo Varadkar's minority government and aims to conclude talks by Christmas, its leader said on Tuesday.

"I will be ringing the Taoiseach (Prime Minister) later today to outline how the review should take place," Fianna Fail leader Micheal Martin told national broadcaster RTE after the presentation of the budget for 2019, the last under the rival parties' three-year government pact.
