    incumbent councilors* Lech Szczecinski

    Adrian Kavanagh has an updating list Non Party/Independent candidates for the 2014 Local Elections | Irish Elections: Geography, Facts and Analyses

    2 big retirements Joan Maher FG retired with Keith Redmond FG candidate to replace her and,

    Peter Coyle Labour who co-opted in Judy Dunne as a replacement a year before the election because "I felt I owed it to the party to give my replacement the same opportunity to establish themselves as I got" I thought it was work in the community that was supposed to establish you.

    there are 8 seats in Fingal Howth Malahide now, thats 3 extra http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fingal_County_Council http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Local_electoral_area with only 3/4 incumbents running again, notice Fine Gael have nominated 3 candidates

    so Fine Gael (and Labour) have introduced the property tax and no expect your to be grateful and vote for them to reduce it by 15%, treating people likes fools, (of course FF can f off on that front too)

    It will be a serious and not so far fetched a prospect for SF to pick off the final seat here. The area includes a large chunk of a working class vote from Swords (Kinsealy, Drynham, Holywell) that was largely unregistered in the last locals. The constituency is traditionally a FF/FG stronghold but tines and demographics have changed. Its a tough one to call but I'd say 1FF, 2FG, Cian o'c and one other

    Not so sure ! There is likely/hopefully going to be a large anti all political parties swing (nationally at least), and we all know the Greens aren't really a political party

    Even in this Tweedledum & Tweedledee heartland there are limits so any independent with a decent website could do well !

    Casual Profile of Keith Redmond in the local Upside News
    Page 26 Upside News


    Keith, your favourite quote?

    "Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery." - Winston Churchill
    Keith ex-PD is just a little bit of a Freeper
