    Have any parties or individuals declared yet for the NUI or Trinity panel?

    Ivana Bacik'll be running for one of the Trinity seats. Not sure if she'll be running as a Labour candidate though.
    Nothing will motivate the lazy / apathetic / Americanised / west-British types to embrace their culture and the Irish language.

    Seán O'Connor - TCD

    Daithí Mac Cárthaigh - NUI

    KK, if elected, will you take or be guided by the FG whip in the Seanad?

    I would not take the whip if elected as I would not be standing as a FG candidate. It seems only reasonable.

    Can anyone tell us about the party political sympathies of any of the candidates standing as "independents"?

    For instance, if Ivana Bacik was to stand as an independent it would still be reasonable to assume that her politics would remain broadly those of the liberal-leftish wing of Labour. Martin Hogan's site says that he is running with the support of the Greens, although it isn't clear if he will formally be a Green Party candidate.

    I'd say Daithi MacCarthaigh will be targetting the FG supporting section of the NUI constituency, what with his recent attempts to picket FG HQ and heckle and shout down Enda Kenny......or maybe not.

    Seán O'Connor - TCD is a grandson of Seán Lemass (doesn't mention that this in turn makes him a nephew of Charles J.) so I would expect a FF inclination.

    I also more and more perplexed about Martin Hogan's involvement with the Green party as I'm sure that the Green party suggested in their submission for Seanad reform that the University seats be abolished completely but Martin claims he has the support of GraduateEquality i.e. Seán O'Connor! So, which side if he on the Green's or Seán O'Connor's?

    This ought to assuage your concerns, King. Ideally, the Seanad should be fully-publicly elected; in the short term, or if a referendum to this effect were defeated (for example), we favour implementing the people's will as expressed in 1979.
