AS Fianna Fail plummets in the polls, more than a dozen key constituencies will decide whether it can exist as a viable party after the next election.

Astonishingly, having already lost its Taoiseach a week before the campaign began, Fianna Fail is now perilously close to losing the current Tanaiste's Dail seat.
