    Default Senator Fiona O'Malley-her future?

    Just saw her on news . She was dealing with a filibuster over the civil partnership bill. Think she is a deputy chairperson of the senate. Last we heard of her it was rumoured she was running for FF in Dubllin South. I presume she wont touch the FF brand with a barge poll now. Any rumours on what she will do now? Glad to see her fellow senator and former PD leader (Cannon) now FG senator, voted for Kenny and thus paid de Bert back for nominating him to Senate!

    O'Malley is an extremist liberal and better off in Labour with her fellow travellers on the Left like Ivana Blacik.

    I don't think it's exactly bright. She knows FF is a lost cause. She won't join FG because of the family and even if she wanted to they wouldn't touch her with a ten foot poll. And I doubt she'd have some sort of a Damascus moment and follow Sexton into Labour (and from what I hear Sexton isn't that well regarded in Labour).

    The end is nigh for the O'Malley dynasty.

    Why or how do you classify her as an extremist liberal? Over abortion/civil partnership? What?

    Not surprised what she would do,After all her father was kicked out of Fianna Fail by Haughey,
    When the spoils of power was been divided up O Malley did not find it hard to put Haughey back in power.

    What has she done??! Sorry re read post-now I got it. Labour might be a more natural home for her and if their vote holds high she might not be a bad candidate somewhere in Dublin. Assuming Alex white takes by election then perhaps Dublin South as his running mate?

    If Fiona O'Malley stood for the Labour Party, Dessie O'Malley would have a fatal seizure. So unlikely that she will stand for Labour I think.

    Wasn't she meant to take over the leadership of the PDs but the PDs inconveniently disappeared before she could do so? An FF candidature isn't what it used to be and she may have some competition in Labour for a nomination.

    Labour seems like the only place she can go. Couldn't imagine her in any of the others

    Off the top of my head I can think of 2 cllrs n DS who would think otherwise.
