Micheál Martin has gone to ground since he was last seen being hoisted above his supporters' shoulders after being elected to the Dáil for the eighth time.

It was the third time he faced the electorate as Fianna Fáil leader and it was arguably his worst result.

Fianna Fáil lost more seats in 2011, but it was expected to and he was not long in the job.
