Taoiseach wants Fianna Fáil to achieve ‘unity’ at think-in

Taoiseach Micheál Martin has stated that he wants Fianna Fáil to unite as parliamentarians at the think-in in Cavan.

Martin told reporters that he intended to remain as leader despite internal opposition from some party members.

The Taoiseach stated, “I’ve been a member of parliament for many, many years. I have rarely ever seen unanimity on many issues, including who leads the party. So that’s not news. And my challenge is to hear people, my job is to listen.”

Fianna Fáil TD Seán Fleming insisted that he didn’t see any prospect of a challenge to the Taoiseach when the parliamentary party meets for the think-in.

Flemming authored a report into Fianna Fáil’s electoral fortunes in recent years, which recommends that the party needs to re-establish a distinct identity.

Over 2,500 party members contributed to the report, whose findings are expected to be discussed during the meeting.
