Well, we will have a General Election over the next couple or few months.

Looking at the 4 TD's for Dublin West it looks like: Leo Varadkar and Jack Chambers will get reelected.

Is Joan Burton standing for reelection?

Ruth Coppinger's seat is very marginal with Paul Donnelly from SF very likely to take it- or he could take Joan Burton's.

Roderic O'Gorman will probably do well taking a lot of votes off all the other parties- but is he seriously in the running for a seat?

Thoughts?

Coppinger losing would bring me no end of joy.

Me too. The SP only have two TD's now with your man Murphy leaving recently and they face a big task to retain them.

Coppinger losing would be a great Victory for Democracy IMO

- she is venomous against anyone who stands up for the Irish.

TBH I will not be voting for any of the front runners

Its down to if Joan B runs again

- she has kept a low profile recently

Varadkar, Chambers are pretty well guaranteed

The last two bums on seats are between Burton, Coppinger and Donnelly

If Burton does not run again then Coppinger and Donnelly are home and dry.

Cllr. John Walsh is a good man to replace her in the medium-to-long term. If he were to stand in the next GE I would be surprised if he did very well but I can see him blossoming over the medium-to-long term. :
