His name was Joseph (no offence about your error) and he lost his life on A/S in Feb 1987 in Fermanagh. Will Sinn Fein increase their % share of the vote here?And don't forget Sean MacManus's other son (also named Seán I believe), an IRA volunteer killed on active service. Beirfidh Bua!
Redone, your views on gibbons chances seem quite strong. While I would expect an increse in his vote possibly getting elected. I wouldnt be so certain. Dyou you know if there is much happening in the cumann in Sligo?
Not in this case. The two couldnt be more diferent. Sean is a hard worker. Chris is the complete opposite. The only thing going in his favour is that FF is going to lose out big time and it should probably be enough for him to hold off a second FF seat in his ward.Sean MacManus is a tireless worker in his community.
I believe his son is cut from the same cloth, They say the apple doesnt fall far from the tree!
Arthur is a cert to get elected. He is a decent and genuine guy living in a part of Sligo that has seen and will unfortuntely will see more problems such as unemployment in the next few months. His track record on local issues is second to none and even die hard blueshirts would agree that Arthur will pull votes from everywhere.Redone, your views on gibbons chances seem quite strong.

Wouldn't it be great craic if Gerry ran and outpolled Jimmy McGarry, if he (Jimmy), had the balls to run in the first place. Stranger things have happened...In relation to Gerry Casey and the impact he would have in the local elections 2009 l would have to agree with you ( Will Gerry be the black horse in this race ) if so l am putting my money on him.
