“Fianna Fáil will come back” – Micheál Martin.
Really, can you not take a hint?
It may come as a shock to overseas readers, but Fianna Fáil has, since its inception, always been the biggest party in the Irish parliament. Always. Until today.
Now they have fallen to second place, for the first time ever behind Fine Gael. This would have been unthinkable in almost any previous election.
And now they have fallen into third place, behind Labour. That was just straight unthinkable. No way could that have happened ever. But they managed it.
It’s just a pity that they had to destroy the country in the process.
And they are still falling. The way things are going, there may be more non-party representatives than FF in the next Dáil.
