It has come to our attention that some users may have been "banned" when they tried to change their passwords after the site was hacked due to a glitch in the old vBulletin software. This would have occurred around the end of February and does not apply after the site was converted to Xenforo. If you believe you were affected by this, please contact a staff member or use the Contact us link at the bottom of any forum page.
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.
