    results for cork east 2007 general election

    oireachtas library cork east constituency profile

    constituency commission recommendations 2007 cork is on pages 16-18.
    areas of carrignavar, glenville, kildinan, watergrasshill, rahan and ballynamona are moving from cork east to cork north central, which may make cork north central more interesting as more rural voters enter the urban constituency. personally i don't think it will make much difference there as those are all commuter areas, with similar concerns to the urban voters.

    you'd have to say 2 FF TD's looks unlikely at the next election, based on national figures. however, its tough to extrapolate that to a local situation, and its equally tough to make an argument for a second Labour seat. a second FG seat looks more likely, though i won't be making any bets

    i see there was a thread on cork east started last year.
    perhaps this thread should be merged with that one?

    Well Ned and Ml.Ahern are certain to run their won’t be any one else in ff in cork east wanting to run this time around anyway. Looking from the outside id say that Stanton will be a dead cert but I don’t know about Bradford, Tom Barry and O Driscoll both have intentions to run and a lot of people think that not getting in,in 2 elections will be enough for bradford.sherlock will be a dead cert too will they run Noel McCarthy in Fermoy and Mulvhill they might run 3 to max the vote

    The talk around Cobh is that Quinlan would be the preferred choice, like Bradford, Mulvihill would be a 3 time loser.

    FF candidates may be different from the incumbents for a number of reasons
