I came across this pic of Fine Gael’s online campaign team during the 2011 election in Michael Gallagher and Michael Marsh’s How Ireland Voted 2011: The Full Story of Ireland’s Earthquake Election.
In a chapter on the online side of the election, the authors [Matthew Wall and Maria Laura Sudulich] found Fine Gael led the way in using online technologies for their campaign.
They said Fine Gael had over THIRTY volunteers working full time.
However, they couldn’t determine how this activity related to the [party’s] performance.
It’ll be like the West Wing, they said.
