Former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern has criticised Fianna Fail leader Micheal Martin, admitting he doesn't "think much of him".

He also claimed the party was doing "fairly brutal" despite being neck-and-neck with Fine Gael in the opinion polls.

Following a private Fianna Fail meeting for a local election candidate in Dublin last night, Mr Ahern played down his party role, insisting he was just giving a "dig out" for the son of a close friend and Fianna Fail member.

Mr Ahern was addressing a crowd of around 50 party members in support of local election candidate Brian Mohan at the Skylon Hotel in his former Drumcondra heartland.
