I doubt if FF will find a 2nd candidate to run. No Cllr with an ounce of sense certainly will not be putting themselves forward as the sacraficial lamb, especially as there is no Seanad seat to run for afterwards as the queue there will be a mile long with FFers.
Without any shadow of doubt I think we can call it here 1 FG, LAB, SF will FF losing out. Tommy Mac will then take the baby sister's seat on the Council and return to teaching for 5 years in the hope of making it back.
