As a hypothetical question, let's say that one of the TDs who is running gets the fifth seat, but Brexit hasn't happened, what happens then?

Do they still forfeit their seat in the Dáil upon election, or do they retain until the point they enter the European Parliament?

I don't know for certain but I'd imagine they remain as a TD until they take up the European seat, if that comes to pass. What would be really interesting is if there is a GE before that happens - will they stand in the GE given that they may be going to Europe a few months later - might be difficult to convince people to vote for you.

and theres mick wallace Home and Colleen Worthington and Peter Madden Allan J Brennan
Wallace's candidacy raises the complexity of projections. I'm not so sure that it will impact SF as much as a second seat for either FF and or FG. (Big 3 model voting pattern.)

He isn't the poll topper he once was in the Wexford Constituency.

Would think they would remain a TD till after Brexit, if their is a GE they would have to decide either wait for Brexit or stand in the GE, if they were elected a TD and then Brexit happened they would have a decision to make. Stay as a TD and let their subitute take the MEP seat or resigne as a TD taking up their MEP seat causing a by election for the Dail seat. Dail numbers, if they were a minister or a minister of state or in a BE what would the chances of your party retaining your seat would all come into play.

Also the same pool as Diarmuid O'Flynn, who seems to be running again.

O'Flynn did well last time, but he's not as prominent as at the last election, as he's moved on from being a GAA journalist, the Ballyhea Says No protests don't have any attention any more, and the issue of bank debts has receded as the economy has improved.

It's something that will happen in the 3 European consticuences, will the venue where the votes for the ES consticuencey be also the venue for that county local elections counts. The votes for the NW EC will be counted in the TF Hotel in Castlebar but the votes for the local election counts aare being counted inthe TF as wellat the same time, one proposell made by a Mayo CC is that the votes for each of the EA be counted in their own area. it seems that in the days of the different urban councils the votes were counted in their own UC area.

Actually, I think the locals will be counted on Saturday and the Euro count cannot start until Sunday night on the somewhat unlikely grounds that the results here (or in the UK!) might affect voters' judgement on the continent.
