FF claims Kenny's "dismissive" attitude cost him

Niall Collins, the party's director of elections, says it is too early to call a result, but claims the trends are pointing to a No vote.
Mr Collins, a Co Limerick TD, said Mr Kenny came up with the idea of scrapping the Seanad "at a time when he was under pressure politically himself".
And he said the Taoiseach further damaged his cause by refusing to take part in debates.
"This throwaway, dismissive attitude that I don't want to debate any of other leaders in case I embarrass them, people don't like to see out of the leader of the country," Mr Collins said. "It's a serious issue, we're talking about the constitution here.
"There are serious messages in there for the Government."
