The gap seems too large for Casey to overcome. But he has the satisfaction of having taken out his arch-critic McHugh.
He hasn't taken her out. She'll be around Irish politics long after he's gone.

There is a whiff of Fianna Failness from Casey though. Amazing he is still in the race though. Did any of the commentariat expect this?
Yes. They all did. Quit your usual efforts to rewrite history.

Someone on here or the Politicalirish one compared the different populations in each consticuencies, Dublin one was way smaller than the other 2. The 3 consticuencies should be fairly even in population

Congrats on Mc Guinness and Walsh in getting 2 seats for FG
Fantastic result for FG

McGuinness is a woman of real calibre who might well go even further in International Politics

Maria Walsh is off to a great start

While obviously not my kinda gal she is certainly a very savvy sister

One to Watch...

great performance by Walsh, maybe she might inspire Mayo to bring Sam home now.

I have been saying it for the past two years. The market is there but people are afraid of being called racist and other such nonsense for taking a stand against the madness of the left. Ideally somebody not afraid of political correctness and willing to call a spade a spade. It has gone so bad that I heard of one school amending the words of the nursery rhyme 'old MacDonald had a farm' from 'and on that farm he had a ...' to ' on that farm there was a ...'. The reason given was that farming is done by both sexes and 'old Mac Donald ' could also be about a woman.Absolutely crazy bullshit.
Casey is a racist. He said it himself.

Yes I mentioned it earlier that the quota in MNW constituency was 115,000 votes
but in Dublin the quota was only 73,000 to elect MEP.

Someone else replied to my post saying that the constituencies are based on population not on electorate, and that dublin has a bigger population of people not entitled to vote, foreign workers etc etc. However that calls into question the whole basis of elections, surely it should be based on the electorate not on population not entitled to vote. When you have distortions between the dublin and MNW constituency which gives a dublin voter 40% more weight than a MNW voter. That is simply wrong and undemocratic
