Will you be contributing to the bailout of the party? Will they be able to raise the amount they need? Maybe they should just ask the taxpayer to kindly bail them out.FIANNA FÁIL is €3.6 million in debt and is planning an "intensive" fundraising campaign to reduce it.
Taoiseach Brian Cowen presided over one such fundraiser at the races in Leopardstown yesterday.
Fianna Fáil senator Mary White said the event had been "very successful", and had attracted about 650 party supporters.
She said a number of additional fundraising initiatives would take place in the coming weeks, such as the party’s annual "superdraw".
Fianna Fáil’s public support is at historically low levels at present, which is expected to impact on the amount of money the party will raise.
