Micheál Martin is bringing Fianna Fail in the wrong direction, and if he remains as leader, the party is set for extinction within the next number of elections. That’s the stated view of Galway West Fianna Fail deputy Eamon O’Cuiv.
The deputy was vocal in his opposition of the party entering coalition with Fine Gael earlier this year, and he claims the latest opinion poll on the state of the parties nationally, published in last Sunday’s Business Post, has reinforced his stance.
Fianna Fail was showing among those surveyed at 10 percent in that opinion poll, and deputy O’Cuiv says the "catastrophic" drop in support for the party, is even worse when you look at it’s support in Dublin.
Eamon O’Cuiv has ruled himself out of taking over the leadership of the party himself, but has been telling Midwest News why he is not happy with Micheál Martin at the helm, and he claims the latest national survey strengthens his view.
