Dunno about that. I doubt too many people will hang on to their current portfolio.

I think Joanna Tuffy, Sean Sherlock and Ciaran Lynch should definitely feature, which means who loses out.

Oh well, we are at least big enough to have a front bench.

Sherlock and Tuffy should definately be given a portfolio - and it would be interesting to see what responsibilities will be given to some of the Seanad members.

Not if your intent on selling the rights to help ensure decent cancer care, because as a government, they are incompetent in ensuring delivery of promised projects

I don't know yet, to be honest. I am not sure if publicly endorsing either candidate would do them, or me any good.

I will decide this week sometime, having reflected on my own experiences within the party, giving due consideration to what the party needs, in order to rebuild along the west coast.

It is an interesting one though, who will you be voting for?

Has Howlin announced his front bench yet ?
There's been no announcement yet even though it is expected they'll come to some formal arrangement with who covers what departments and giving some responsibility to their Seanad members. All we have so far is Burton saying that she'll be covering 2 departments with some doing 3 and Howlin said he'll be no longer be spokesperson for for PER and won't be shadowing Pascal O'Donohoe.

That's a good team and a good range of portfolios. All the TD positions are well matched. I expect Howlin and Burton to be very effective and Kelly will rip new ones for Simon & Garfunkel Harris and Mary Mischief O'Connor
