David Quinn: Micheal, time to reshape destiny of Fianna Fail or lose more votes

If Fianna Fail had any sense it would adopt two principles: look after the money and the family. Follow these and society can't go too badly wrong

When I criticised the direction in which Micheal Martin is taking Fianna Fail in my column last Friday, some people asked me, why bother? Fianna Fail, they said is a busted flush and an irrelevancy. There's a lot of truth in that, but the country needs a strong, coherent Opposition and far better Fianna Fail than Sinn Fein.

On Monday, the party is having a special 'think-in' and for its own sake it had better engage in some very hard thinking and ask itself some very tough questions.
