    Just saw this tweet

    I understand Mary Hanafin came last of three candidates at the FF convention in Dún Laoghaire tonight. @CormacDevlin topped poll of local members, @KateFeeneyFF second. DL is a four-seater, but convention only chooses one candidate - up to HQ to add another (v likely)

    She said in the papers today that she fully expects to be added to the ticket despite coming last in the selection convention. There is democracy for ya. Why the special treatment for her?

    Tough on Feeney who is more popular. Devlin has worked hard locally for years and could have held the seat in 2011 if Hanafin had moved to south county as requested.
