So the campaign is on and we know who has thrown their hat in the ring.
What's your opinions on those seeking re-election? Can any of the newcomers oust them? Can FG win back a seat in the North of the Constituency? Who will be in and who will be out after February 8th?

Can poor FG win back a seat in the South of the Constituency?
Why did you ask about North of the Constituency?

Was living down under for the last 9 years and it was still North and South when I went. Old habits die hard. Getting it hard to remember that its all the one now. That's why I put up the post really. Want to see who I should be watching. I know Coonan lost out the last time round so was wondering it there is someone likely to replace him at that end of Tipperary

Atm It looks like Lowry and Mattie will be comfortable.

FF will win 1 with Jackie Cahill.

After that FG should win 1 but candidates haven't a great profile and don't be surprised if they fail to win a seat. Might be a stretch but their vote won't be impressive.

Kelly will be tight with Hannigan taking much of his base. I expect large parts of North Tipp to get behind Hannigan who could pull a shock

Wonder if the regain of Tipp's northern... tip... from Offaly will make any material difference. Anyone? Is it too much to hope Mahhie McSlobberer will get turfed out? Probably.

Nobody likes a bully. Someone will lose their seat.

Hannigan got over 5000 votes in the last election , nearly all in the North Tipp area that was transferred to Offaly . He should pull most of that vote this time out . That is a serious base to build on !

Michael Lowry certainly and Mattie McGrath. Both have large chunks of the former FG and FF votes here.

How long will that take to die off I wonder? Probably a lifetime... no doubt Mahhie has the slobbering pro life misogynist vote sewn up.

No, I think Lowry would be expected to poll well in that area. It's traditionally good for him. Hannigan got a good vote in the local elections and does have a base but a lot of his performance the last time was because he was the local candidate for people who found themselves in an unfamiliar constituency.

Hannigan wont get anywhere near 5,000

kelly will mop up the area just north of nenagh and Lowry will do very well in Borrisokane

Seamus Healy will win a seat again.. there's a left seat in every constituency. On the very off chance that FF have a really really good day.. watch out for Imelda Goldsboro

Hard to blame anyone for getting this Election wrong.

Your man made it in again without reaching the quota but a bad election for Labour again. They need to really work on getting back to their roots. Remember the great John Ryan and how he operated. Neither Kathleen O Meara or Alan Kelly can hold a candle to him. Labour has lost its way. They could have increased their vote if they paid attention to the needs of the working man that they are supposed to represent.

Have to agree. Labour is done and dusted - has been for a long time. No loss to see Howlin stepping down but no one will ever bring that party back to what is used to be.

Kelly as leader might be able to rebuild.he has the energy and is labours best chance.
