It's so on!!

Sinn Fein definitely running a candidate. No official word on who it is yet,
While 3 senators have said they're considering running.

While an election is good, personally I can't see Michael D being beat.
Anyway, something of interest to look forward to!

Who would you like to see winning it, and why?

FF/FG's "My Little Crony" strategy is in trouble. Expect some noises from FF about how FF should have its own candidate.

And why can't they? Is someone stopping them?

I see no reason to remove Higgins from the role, but elections are good.

Well, there will be one. I wonder will SF nominate Adams, and if they did, would he win.
Adams wouldn’t win even if he stood, would introduce a lot of young people to voting for SF

i thought FG would give Edna a run

I’m guessing a two horse race. MDH Vs SF

If the main parties enforce the whip on councils, there won’t be enough council votes to nominate the ragbags.

Mary Davis? She would literally be the person least likely in the whole country to run.

I should have said Mary Davis type candidates will emerge.

Plenty of them in the past. Eg Derek Nally Adi Roche etc.
