If Ó Domhnaill wins the by-election he will be elevated in stature and being a newly elected TD for the constituency will stand for him in the GE. I find it hard to see thousands of FF voters abandoning the party in Donegal when Mary Coughlan is Tánaiste and a good TD and Minister and Ó Domhnaill is I believe a good candidate.
Has anyone considered that Mary Coughlin may not run in the next GE. She's been there 23 years and what has she got out of it. Distain and a one-legged estranged husband
