Banas??This is a slow constituency to move away from FF+FG. There is no real sign of the Greens, Labour, PDs looking to ply their trade here, or at least not in a concerted way.
Sinn Féin may be the ones who will crack this nut. My guess is a SF seat in the town councils of Béal Átha na Slua, Baile Locha Riach and possibly Tuaim. Sinn Féin may take CoCo seats in BÁnaS (5 seater) and BLR (7 seater) areas too.
Gerard Gibbons was the Labour candidate in Connacht/Ulster last time, not Colm KeaveneyKeaveny is currently a full time official with SIPTU and is running in Tuam for a council seat. He ran in the last European election but crashed and burned, so Hugh Baxter from Roscommon is going to be their sacrificial lamb this time around.
