Thats the point. Theres a lot of young engineering types in shannon whom tell me it would be irreseponsible to send incompetents to dublin for free lunches just because labour and FG have nothing else to offer, refreshing really I supposepeople would vote sinn fein then transfer to fine gael jesus some mixed up people in shannon so
but it baffles me because Cllr McCafferty is a shinner so she would be a lefty and breen is a righty so why give one and two on the ballot to totally different policies/politics:?Thats the point. Theres a lot of young engineering types in shannon whom tell me it would be irreseponsible to send incompetents to dublin for free lunches just because labour and FG have nothing else to offer, refreshing really I suppose
Thankfully Dooley and Killeen will not be the only two on the ballot paperhate to say it if i had to pick it would be dooley over killeen because atleast dooley faces the music in relation to taking the public anger, killeen just hides all the time and will never face the public when it matters
Where did you hear that misinformation?McCafferty will not get the candidacy.
She is unpopular among many shinners in Clare.
There's not even a cumann in Shannon anymore, despite there being a seat on the council. Locals use the Ennis cumann nowadays.
A shame as she is a good councillor imo.
Chill out. Read my last sentence, I personally think she's a good councillor.Where did you hear that misinformation?
Cathy is and always has been well respected in Clare. That being said there is a group of three or four shinners (new members I might add) who have taken to talking about her behind her back, which is where I am guessing you got this story from.
You are correct there is no cumann in Shannon, so apparently you do know someone on the inside, but heres the rub - there is no cumann in Ennis either. Thanks to the aforementioned 3-4 they started a ruck as they did not like Cathys leadership, and do to the conflict the party stood down the entire county. Right now there are no official structures in place for SF in Shannon, Ennis or anywhere else.
Get your facts straight before making claims against a councilor here sure.
And to address earlier posts about who SF might run in the GE,there is no hope of running any candidate until there is some official structure in place.
It's odd, especially given the fact that Pat's a magpie and not a local.people would vote sinn fein then transfer to fine gael jesus some mixed up people in shannon so
agreed. just came on here to say i wont be running for sf in an election and to stop lies being spread about me. anyway onward to a GE and i hope a new start but i doubt it.It's odd, especially given the fact that Pat's a magpie and not a local.
As someone mentioned earlier the quality is really lacking.
To be honest James Breen, at the moment, is the best out of a pretty bad bunch. He should get in. Dooley should be just kicked out immediately. The man is an absolute spineless cretin. He actually makes me physically sick. I remember him going down to Element Six to console the workers when they were being laid off and getting a right lambasting. The two blueshirst should unfortunately make it along with the Cowen loyalist. I'm really surprised about Meaney staying with the Greens though. He'll lose his deposit.
CptSterrn and Sean81, this site aint the best place to air grievances. Get your house sorted out for the election. Ye have a great opportunity given the state of the other contenders.
Totally agree, a more reprehensible individual you could not meet.I just dont know how any Clare person could vote for him, but he topped the poll in 2007 so we will have to wait and see.Dooley is a disgrace.
Remember during the last GE when he made the campaign promise that if they took away the 24 A&E he would resign? Then they did, and he didn't?
Or when Aer Lingus was in talks with the government and he had the audacity to come out for a photo shoot with their union saying he supported them? And then he and the government voted against them?
Or do ye remember when he promised to save Shannon Airport, campaigned on this, and again now it is on its last legs?
Anyone who votes for Dooley is either related to him or just plain mental. I would wager his own family might not even vote for him, at least the ones that live in Clare sure.
Local Polls are notoriously inaccurate. I wouldn't pay any heed unless it's RedC or MRBI.Christ just noticed this on the local radio staion clarefm. Proof of whats been said, truly sad.
What party will you vote for in the next General Election?
