Fianna Fáil joined Instagram today, but made a balls-up of the announcement

What's in a name?

Fianna Fáil supporters are probably still buoyant after their political resurgence in the recent General Election, but some people might argue that the traditional boundaries and differences between Ireland's main political parties are becoming harder to distinguish.

While this might be true, Fianna Fáil's name will always carry political and social significance in the 32 counties because it's an important part of Irish history.

It seems that the people running the social media account for the 'Soldiers of Destiny' or 'Warriors of Fál' had a fairly noticeable fail this morning though when they announced that the party had joined Instagram.

The original tweet has since been deleted, but here's a screengrab of the original announcement.

Proof that there's a 'fine' line between success and Fianna Fáil-ure when it comes to social media. Then again, maybe it's proof that a Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil merger is on the way!
