'We're baaack' former Fianna Fail TD Conor Lenihan rubs salt in Fine Gael wounds

One of the major talking points of the General Election so far has been the resurgence of Fianna Fail as a major force in Irish politics

The party are expected to double their number of seats in The Dail with the Sunday Independent predicting that they will secure 44. 

The Government party meanwhile have suffered huge losses alongside coalition partners Labour. Speaking on the Sean O'Rourke show on RTE Radio one show, former Fianna Fail TD Conor Lenihan - son of the late Brian Lenihan - was eager to twist the knife.

"Remember that ad at the beginning of their campaign, 'Don't let Fianna fail back to haunt you', well, we're baaaack", he says

 "I nearly crashed the car, the one golden rule of politics is that you don't mention the opposition, but they had us in all their ads".

The video published on the RTE Radio One Twitter account has been met with disbelief, with many commentators lamenting the short memories of the Irish electorate.
