Fianne Fáillte leader John “Bombers” Bruton said he was shocked by the election results but not surprised.
“I know it is going to be very hard,” he said.
“But they have to recover and get back to a position where they can actually govern and represent their constituents.” “
He added: “We’ve got to be patient. “

Bruton, who had already said he would not be campaigning for a second term in office, was asked if he was disappointed by the results. “
The fact that we have a strong party and a united party, I think that will help us to recover.”
Bruton, who had already said he would not be campaigning for a second term in office, was asked if he was disappointed by the results.
“No,” he replied.
“This is a very difficult period for everyone.”
Brutons office in Dublin had been vandalised on Monday night.
Bruton and his wife Mary had been due to celebrate their first anniversary with a birthday party at the family home in Ballinamore.
Brutons family were in the process of moving to Ballinaboy for the new year when the attack took place.
He said he had been worried about his security and had been watching the election closely.
Brutson said the attacks on his family home had left him feeling isolated and “devastated”.
He said his wife was concerned about her safety as she was travelling in the country from the UK.
He also said he did not believe he would be able the party leader again.
Brutonson’s office in the constituency was burglarised in February, shortly after he was elected to the Fáileann.
He did not say when he thought the burglars broke into the office but said they broke into his office and a lock.
Brutón said he received an email from his colleague at the time, the Féin TD Catherine Murphy, informing him the home was burgled on Monday morning.
“When I got there, there was a man who was standing on the front steps of my office, who said: ‘Bomber’ was spray painted on the outside of my front door,” he told RTÉ’s Morning Ireland.
Brutón, who has worked as an engineer for a number of years, said he found out about the attack through news reports. “
I said: “Oh, well he’s not here, he’s out of the house.
“If it hadn’t been me, then I think there would have been an immediate reaction, but obviously it was a very serious matter and it took me a long time to be able do the research, which took me some time.” “
That was the moment when I realised what had happened,” he added.
“If it hadn’t been me, then I think there would have been an immediate reaction, but obviously it was a very serious matter and it took me a long time to be able do the research, which took me some time.”
Brutron said that although he had not been in touch with Murphy, he had seen her on TV earlier in the day and had spoken to her.
“My wife is distraught, I’ve been talking to her and I’m really concerned about what’s happening,” he explained.
Brutonial said he is currently working on a book about the assassination of Fiannan Fáíl and said he wanted to write about the role that the Fúil party played in the assassination.
He added that he did expect the attacks to be “very serious”.
Brutonial’s wife is from Ballinan, Co Dublin and was travelling from the US with him when the burglaries took place and he had to travel back to Dublin from Washington, DC, on Monday.
Brutonal said that he had spoken with Murphy but had not yet spoken to his wife.
“She’s doing quite well and she’s doing OK.
She hasn’t been injured,” Bruton explained.
“In the next few days she’s going back to work.”
Brutonial is expected to attend the funeral of his son, Patrick, who was killed in the attack.
He was accompanied by his wife and daughter.
Brutonia also said that Fiannam Fáín would continue to be his political opponent.
