FIANNA Fail is determined to renew its core values as a political force in Irish politics—so that it can once again take over at the helm of government.
THAT was the assertion by party leader Mr. Micheal Martin T.D. when he visited Co. Monaghan on Tuesday night last, and addressed separately enthusiastic meetings of Fianna Fail councillors, party members and officials at the Glencarn Hotel in Castleblayney.
Close on 200 party members, including many former public representatives and key workers in the Fianna Fail organization, as well as current local authority representatives from each of the five towns in the county were present to take part in the lively exchanges with the leader aimed at re-creating a new image for Fianna Fail. A number of F.F. representatives from neighbouring Co. Cavan were also in attendance, although a similar party “renewal” meeting is also scheduled for Cavan shortly.
In an exclusive interview—prior to addressing members of the Monaghan Comhairle Dail Ceanntar—Mr. Martin said he was delighted by the enthusiastic reception he received from the party members in Co. Monaghan.
The large and representative attendance included retired Cavan/Monaghan F.F, Dail deputies, Dr. Rory O’Hanlon, Carrickmacross, and Jimmy Leonard, Smithboro. Former Seanad Eireann member, Francie O’Brien, was also present.
The Mayor of Co. Monaghan, Cllr. Seamus Coyle, along with a number of veteran FF councilors and ex-councillors from the different areas greeted Mr. Martin, on his arrival in Blayney, where he was also met by Mr. Patrick McFadden of the Glencarn Hotel, who is local Chamber of Commerce president.
