The show is over for Fianna Fail
Sir -- While Ireland is experiencing the most turbulent times since the foundation of the State, there are certain things which clearly haven't changed. When Fianna Fail TD Ned O'Keeffe emerged from the parliamentary party meeting last Tuesday evening, he announced that Fianna Fail was "concerned about the opinion polls". This is an extraordinary statement to make given the precarious position the country currently finds itself in. While Ireland may have a bleak future, Fianna Fail seems to be more concerned with plotting its triumphant return to power. It may have been 'show time politics' for the last 13 years, but now the show is over and it's time to get out.
