    Default Packie Bonner being sought for a run for FF in Donegal (again)

    The Irish Independent this morning reports that Fianna Fail are planning to run the Donegal South West byelection earlier next year by itself, and are hoping former Irish socceer star Packie Bonner will be the party's candidate.

    Party strategists believe FF has a chance of winning in Donegal but have written off the other polls in Dublin South and Waterford, which have to be held by the end of April, as almost certain losses.
    Politics.ie readers will remember discussions last year about Packie Bonner potentially running for the party in the European Elections in Ireland North West.

    Why am I not surprised? Fianna Fail go for the name. Hope Packie Bonner tells 'em to shove it!

    Will the electorate fall for it, probably.

    Don't do it Packie. Let us remember you for your heroic exploits on the pitch. Don't let your good name be associated with that shower.

    i dont know.

    jesus christ himself could decend from heaven to stand for FF and he'd be told to ************************ off so i think packie would be mad to do so.

    i reckon all three seats are lost to FF.
