Sample text

The second factor relates to the reason why Fianna Fáil support collapsed in 2011. This particular election was highly unusual in that it came in the wake of an unprecedented economic crisis. The crisis dominated the election campaign, making issues relating to the economy highly salient. As one leading Irish journalist stated: The economic crash, the banking collapse and bailout and the consequent deep recession were more than just the background to the 2011 general election campaign; the economic, fiscal and financial issues dominated every debate.

Both of these types of explanation undoubtedly have some merit. Nonetheless, there are two other factors that do not fall neatly into the top-down or bottom-up stories. These are the existence of a dominant catch-all party, Fianna Fáil, and the salience of performance competition among the parties rather than policy competition. We argue that these two factors are a critical part of any story about class politics, and the lack of it, in Ireland. Although all of the three main parties in Ireland are typically seen as representative of the broad spectrum of social groups and interests, Fianna Fáil’s support base has been thought of as the most diffuse and the most predicated on performance in office rather than policy and group interest representation (Weeks 2010).
