As suggested in another thread, this is a thread where we can collate information about which TDs are definitely not standing at the next election. I'd prefer to keep it as somewhere where we just keep a list of those TDs who have announced their intention to retire, rather than speculation along the lines of "Surely, PJ Sheehan can't stand again at his age".

Anyway, the only definite ones I know of are

-Michael Fitzpatrick (FF/Kildare N)
-Martin Cullen (FF/Waterford)


Any more to add to the list?

Senator Rory O'Hanlon is not contesting again. Does anyone know if Fergal Quinn is going to go for the NUI Panel again?

P.J Sheehan is confirmed to locals I believe. There wont be an announcement until early next year. CSW is always a little slow that way.

I believe Olwyn Enright has just added her name to this list.

Vincent Browne said Michael Woods was retiring at the next election.

I assume that this retirement will require sanction from the Vatican?
