FIANNA FÁIL LEADER Micheál Martin has today hit back at widespread criticism of the party during its time in government.

In an interview on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland, he said that there is “too much of this going on about blanket blame for everything and lack of credit for what was done”.

During the interview he pointed to some of the good work the party had done. However Fianna Fáil has faced widespread criticism in the wake of its demise, and has been slammed for its perceived responsibility for Ireland’s economic crisis.

What do you think? Is Fianna Fáil entirely to blame for the situation the country finds itself in today?

Poll Results:

Yes, the party is completely responsible (1397)
They are for the most part but there were other factors involved (1389)
No, any party in government in the past ten years would be facing this criticism (561)
I don't know (34)
