A New report shows deep unhappiness in the party over last year's General Election campaign.

There will be no leadership challenge against Michael Martin at the Fianna Fail think-in in Cavan today.

That's according to the committee of TDs which authored the report on the party's electoral failures in recent years.

Almost 3,000 FF members contributed to this report which will be the main topic of discussion on the first day of the party's think-in today.

The report found members felt the party had no clear identity.

Younger members in particular were critical about engagement with voters on social media during the general election.

Junior Minister Mary Butler, who was on the committee that put the report together, says a lot of members are unhappy with a "negative narrative" being portrayed by some members of the parliamentary party.
