John Drennan: Martin on brink as FF faces Munster wipeout

Private constituency polls will send shockwaves through party as support evaporates in key Munster voting areas


Two new constituency polls seen by the Sunday Independent reveal that Fianna Fail is facing into a political abyss in Munster and leadership contender Micheal Martin could be one of the casualties.

A private constituency poll from a reputable polling company, reveals that Fianna Fail is struggling to win a single seat in the three-seat constituency of Cork North West.

More astonishingly still, in Foreign Minister Micheal Martin's bailiwick of Cork South Central, support for a party that won three seats in 2002 has deteriorated to such an extent FF might not retain a single TD there.
