    Default Mayo next GE

    Mayo next GE

    A 4 seater, last time round
    Enda Kenny - FG
    Micheal Ring - FG
    Dara Calleary - FF
    Lisa Chambers - FF

    Enda is retiring at the next election with former Mayo footballer Alan Dillon replacing him on the FG ticket and is joined by Senator Michelle Mulherin from Ballina. Ring will top the poll, the other 3 seats will be a battle between Ballina and Castlebar with possible who are ahead in each area coming out on top. U also have Walsh of SF who has a high profile as a senator. Alot of votes left the Ballina area which did Michelle no favours, also part of South Mayo which was in Galway West in the last GE is back in Mayo which is normaly a strong FG area.
    This time round their wont be as many Indos. running unless Kilcoyne of Castlebar runs, he has being contemplating a number of times running, RENUA is also running a candidate. Their will be 2 FG, 1 FF and a dogfight between FG, FF and a outside chance of SF for the last seat

    FG won't win 3 seats in Mayo with Kenny retiring, It will be between FF and SF for the last seat. Unless of course Kilcoyne decides to run.

    How will the last seat be between SF and FF?
    Have SF made big gains in the Mayo constituency since the last GE?

    West's Awake should be along soon to tells us how It will go!

    Kenny did nothing for Mayo and is leaving a sour taste behind him, so don't count on his seat going to another waste of votes.

    Has any Taoiseach or TD ever done less for their own constituency that Enda Kenny ?

    Dillon and Chambers will be fighting on the same patch, interesting to see that dynamic

    U have them in Castlebar while uhace Michelle/Dara in Ballina, Alan will have the edge on Lisa through his GAA backroundm when OMahoney ran in Mayo he had FF GAA men canvassing with him.
    Michelle has done a lot of work in Mayo since the last GE, this work has resulted in a scheme for fixing houses damaged through Pyrite, hopefully some thing will be done for peoples houses distroyed by the Pyrite.

    Surely Chambers as the sitting TD had an edge ocer Dillon? She is pretty high profile and when she could get elected last time in the Taoiseachs home patch surely shecwill be delighted to see the back of him this time.
    If Dillons political career is as successful as his footballing one then Chambers should be ok.
