    I was always surprised they ran her...they could have gone with Jennifer Cuffe or Kate Feeney if determined to run a woman. They should probably have chosen just one candidate; they'd probably have gotten a seat.

    They'd have gotten a much higher pref from me if they'd gone with Cuffe....however, in fairness to FF, she got selected alright, but she's running in Wicklow.....

    Any news on DunLaoghaire?? RTE not saying much yet, except that FG and RBB are doing well. Surely not 3/4 seats for FG (inc Sean Barratt)? Interested to see how SF do this time around.

    Howlin my have a point: Lowry topping the poll in Tipp, the Cowan family is back, two Healy-Raes... It doesn't get much wronger.

    Am I the only one who is still believinging/hoping that Burton can be caught? 597 votes ahead of Donnelly with transfers from 6190 votes to come from 2 independents and a green. She hasn't done spectacularly well from FG and Renua transfers so far either.
    Do the right thing.
