Fianna Fáil have urged the Fine Gael led Government to put more effort into addressing the current health and homeless crisis.
The party who have seen a drop in support according to latest polls, made the statement during their annual think-in, in Co Longford this afternoon.
Speaking about the parties future Michael Martin said he was confident heading into the next general election.
Mr Martin who also outlined the parties plans said although they support the Fine Gael led Government, he did say they must do more to address the current issues affecting the country including homelessness and health.
The Fianna Fáil leader also launched a scathing attack on the former Department of Housing Minister Simon Coveney for leaving his position whilst many people around the country were in the middle of a crisis after losing their homes.
Mr Martin claimed that Mr Coveney took the easy option that was presented to him rather than stay in his previous position and rectify many issues affecting the Irish people.
He also discussed the possibility of forming a partnership with Sinn Fein in the future saying he does not foresee that happening as the party have completely different views on key issues.
