Micheál Martin accuses Coalition of launching 'most negative re-election campaign in history'

Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin has today accused the Government of planning "the most negative re-election campaign" in the history of the State.

He made the claim in a speech at this afternoon's Sean Lemass commemoration at Deans Grange Cemetery in Dublin.

Deputy Martin accused the Coalition of focusing on their opponents rather than the problems facing the country.

He claimed "the one and only thing" the Government thinks about is re-election.
