There is a reasonable likelihood that, by mid-2018, Dublin Central could find itself represented by three newly-installed party leaders. In the first instance, Kenny resigns and gives his parting endorsement to Pascal Donohue, who promptly triumphs as the "compromise candidate". Secondly, Adams finally retires, and Mary-Lou edges out Pearse Doherty in a razor-tight battle. Finally, after Gary Gannon pips Maureen O'Sullivan for the final constituency seat, he is elected sole Soc Dem leader when the party chooses to switch to the traditional model. It would certainly be a unique means of freezing FF out of an electoral area!
