Dont know why you think the goverment will fall, people have been saying the goverment will fall any day now since 2008 and it still has not happened and i dont think it will. I think they will hold the 3 bye elections in may or june, i think FF will win donegal,(pat the cope will probably be their candidate) that will help keep them going untill summer 12. Now back to my question who might be the Fg candidate in dublin south? John bruton ? Gay mitchell ? Eamon dunphy ? George hooke ?I do not see them putting forward anyone in the by-election because the GE will probably take place long before any by-elections.
At this rate FG will be reduced to throwing a dart at a list of names on the electoral register. If FG had a candidate they would have moved the writ. There failure to move the writ speaks volumes.
This has become more relevant again now that the party organisation in Dublin South are bringing the government to court over their opposition to holding the by-election.
It won't be John Kennedy.This has become more relevant again now that the party organisation in Dublin South are bringing the government to court over their opposition to holding the by-election.
John Kennedy a fairly young member who previously ran for the Seanad is looking for the nomination and he's putting a lot of effort into it. Beyond that I don't think anyone else has announced their interest.
