Alan Shatter, who lost his seat on election day, has fired a broadside aimed at Enda Kenny, saying that the party is “obsessed” with marketing and focus groups, and that it failed to see, or ignored, the electoral campaign’s shortcomings.

Mr. Shatter said: “In Fine Gael there is an issue with election messaging. The obsession with focus groups and marketing, the use of outside consultants , an incapacity to, during the course of that campaign, to recognise when things were going wrong.”

He also said that Enda Kenny has some ‘serious questions’ to answer in relation to Fine Gael’s adverse election results, adding that he believes that voters in his constituency were “grievously misled”
