Independent Senator, Sharon Keogan, has taken to social media to back the call from the Slane Fianna Fáil cumann for the resignation of Micheál Martin as party leader.

Posting on Facebook, Keogan said ‘ Huge gratitude must be given to our local Fianna Fail Cumann in Slane for truly reflecting the views of 95% of the Fianna Fáil organisation.

The role of a leader is so important, particularly in the difficult times we’re in.
‘Unfortunately leadership is badly lacking at this time.
It doesn’t give me any joy to see the party that I once loved, the party I gave so much of my life to, fall apart from within. A great shame for Irish politics’.
