But there was no bloodletting at the party’s post-election analysis meeting, following the loss of over 100 council seats, which was described as “subdued”.
A number of backbenchers did raise the medical cards, the failure to tackle Sinn Fein, the justice controversies around Alan Shatter and the disconnect between ministers and the reality on the ground.
Mr McHugh was said to be particularly passionate about his experience in Donegal North-East and the reasons behind the loss of votes.
Mr Kenny addressed the meeting, expressed his sadness at the loss of so many good councillors and took notes of the comments made by backbenchers.
