A post on the Political Reform blog reckons S.F. could nab a seat in the new 5 seater. Along with McGrath and the other two (Bruton, Ó Riordáin), F.F. and S.F. are capable of taking seats.
That means Seán Haughey and who?
S.F. have fielded two separate candidates in this areas over the last few years:
- Peter Lawlor (Clontarf local 2004, DNC 2007)
- Helen McCormack (Clontarf 2009, DNC 2011)
The new constituency takes in a portion of D.C., but I don't think the inimitable Christy Burke will be standing!
They need to stand a brand new face in the 2014 locals, to set them up for the General in 2016. Who?
