The FG selection convention for Dublin West is tonight and FF was contesting the convention don't know if that will change with her resignationWith a likely election early in 2018, and the tanaiste unlikely to run again at 67.......who will fg run here......will it be Kenny Egan?
Nay - running again, it seems!The FG selection convention for Dublin West is tonight and FF was contesting the convention don't know if that will change with her resignation

That would be the 26th Dail in 89, that case could be made about TD's since 69 when a number of TD's was found not guilty of trying to import for the IRA although one of the other found not guilty claimed on radio they were guilty.A better question might be 'how many in the past five Dails have successfully avoided being charged with corruption?'
The only alternative to her will be Derek KeatingNay - running again, it seems!
Well what allegations of corruption have TDs been questioned about without charge?I know but exulting in Ireland's infamous inability to charge anyone with corruption despite being one of the most corrupt states in Europe is probably the wrong line of question.
So resigning on a corruption accusation did not deter her or the party.....Says it all really.Former Tánaiste Frances Fitzgerald has been selected by Fine Gael to contest the next general election in Dublin Mid-West tonight.
In a tweet, she said she was honoured to be selected as a candidate for the party in the constituency.
Cllr Emer Higgins was also selected tonight.
Two others - Vicki Casserly and William Lavell - withdrew.
