The council has 33 members, and the current state of play is:

Fianna Fáil: 10
Fine Gael: 9
Independent: 6
Sinn Féin: 5
Labour: 2
SKIA (Michael Gleeson): 1

The local election districts have been reallocated with the creation of Castleisland and the splitting of South and West, so from North to South, we have:

Listowel: 6
Tralee: 7
Castleisland: 4
Dingle: 3
Killarney: 7
Kenmare: 6

As for my own district of Tralee, it's fair enough to say that both SF, Terry O'Brien for Labour, Norma Foley (FF) and Jim Finucane (FG) should be safe, with the final two seats between the second Labour (Ben Slimm), Fianna Fáil (Wall or Mikey Sheehy Jnr), Bridget O'Brien (FG) and Independent Sammy Locke, with, on balance, Wall and Locke favoured to prevail.

In fairness, Kate Carmody is a self-made woman, with Beál Cheeses - could do worse than her!

Clever lady, she gave the people something they actually love, i can see a lot of people voting for her. Only problem though she's no party so if she gets elected she won't have any real power

That's the most promising verdict for Johnny that I've encountered?

I've been listening to Tuesday's part 1 of the Radio Kerry Tralee debate.
Nobody exactly set the airwaves alight?

Were you at either centre?
I was over in Mitchell's for half9 for Norma's great moment, after a while I popped home, then I returned and didn't leave till Listowel was wrapped up at half8. That was an especially grueling count: a pity Lucid had to fall.

I'll pass on commenting on the Healy Rae phenomenon.

Sigh...
