    I've been thinking about what FF are up to, they've still got a reasonable first preference vote but they're transfer toxic. The way things are they would have to be well ahead of SF on first preferences to stay ahead of them seat wise. So they're looking for transfers from the SF bandwagon by playing nice with them. It's cynical vote gathering on their behalf, but very clever if it works. They are determined to claw their way back to power by hook or by crook. For my money they're going to support a minority FG Govt at some stage and pull the plug when FG are at their most vulnerable.

    Three councilors have joined the Iosagan in his determined/populist/rebel stand. All from Iar-Gaillimh, it has to be said.

    How do you solve a problem like O Cuiv, asks Fionnan Sheehan at the end of his article. Unfortunately, he does not provide anywhere where I can send my (admittedly exteme) suggestion.
