Minister Mc Hugh has publicly Endorsed one candidate and is directing Eimer Friels campaign.
This is obviously to stop Ex Councillor Noel Mc Bride from regaining his seat, which he list in 2014.
FG have no seats in Milford area and how have 2 candidates contesting the election. The logic of a 2 candidate strategy is mind boggling and Mc Bride was unchallenged at convention.
Now the minister has decided he must be stopped.

lol Inda rowed back on the agreement he struck with Ring and that FG lady from Mayo. As soon as Inda smelt that his vote might be in trouble, he went in canvassing on the others territory costing her a seat. Stupid fvcking Enda could have secured three seats for FG in Mayo if he just honoured the agreement he made.

FG are a stupid, grubby gang of Me Feiners.

Enda was never stupid. He grew up in a political house, and had served as a councillor and TD since 1974.
He could have done a lot for Mayo, but seems to have been afraid of criticism from the media for favouring his home patch. Most Taoisigh did not worry about that

In previous elections FG had done very well in Mayo in the hope that a Mayo Taoiseach would deliver much to the county. Because of failure to meet those expectations the "Blue Tide" ebbed

In the last GE Enda got a lot of votes in the Ballina electoral area, as for him canvassing in the area i never heard that as the party leader hr would naturally have travelled all over Mayo during the campaign.
When JOM was standing in Mayo GE he used be down in MOM area canvassing with well known FF GAA people

I did not know Minister McHugh & former Cllr McBride's relationship was tarnished if i'm honest.

FG always seem to have the most contentious conventions for selecting candidates, even when there is only one candidate being up for selection. Nowt as queer as FG!

FG never a dull moment, ow Frank (the tank) McBrearty joins the FG ticket in Finn Valley insane. They have just about 90%of 1 quota and are running 3 candidates.
If this election goes anti government in a big way FG will loose the few council seats they have, how will this not look on the Ministers CV.

This is going on across all parties. How many disagreements have we seen in FF Lab SF over the last few years, even in PBP,
Survival of the fittest. Seats on the gravy train dont go to the faint hearted
