Fionnan Sheahan: No end to chaos for FF after Martin's latest farce

A 72-year-old veteran Senator with conservative views wasn't exactly what Micheal Martin had in mind to represent the 'new Fianna Fail'.
But the Fianna Fail leader found himself in a deepening farce surrounding his party's involvement in the presidential election last night.
Senator Labhras O Murchu didn't read Martin's script. A fortnight after seemingly putting the issue of the party's presidential hopes to bed, the vacuum was unexpectedly filled by the desire of some to have a Fianna Fail brand on the ticket.
