Makings of a really excellent series
What’s a Constitutency? Is it related to a Constituency?
Sorry Tony, fixed now. Thank you very much.
Andrews, Ryan, O’Callaghan (pact with Andrews) and a 20 plus count marathon for the last seat.
And Eucinda to go legal
Lucinda is getting in on the first count Frilly. Ryan will be a squeeze.
Oh and water charges are water charges, but Kevin Humphries is still popular. Creighton, Murphy, An Shinner-Nua and a squeeze in from Humphries over Ryan.
Might be worth wee punt on Creighton losing her seat with those odds.
This is my constituency. Creighton would absolutely never get a vote from our house as she’s an insufferable pillock, not to mention just more right-wing Fine Gael. Fine Gael are right out too. Kate O’Connell has some policies I actually like, but her association with the party means she’ll be getting nothing. Fianna Fail, HA. No chance. Social Democrats will be getting our vote, with possibly a second preference to Eamon Ryan, for merely not being the other parties. And in fairness to the Greens, and the SocDems, they’re the only ones who have so far bothered to call to the door and engaged well.
This is pretty much exactly the same story for me except Ryan is being my first pref I think .
No canvassers yet. Though I haven’t seen one in either of the last two elections. I must be on some type of canvasser blacklist.
I did see Kevin Humphereys preparing to canvas the other evening in Rathgar. He looked fupping miserable.
He always looks like that.
More interesting to note than that he is Miriam’s brother, Jim O’Callaghan, FF, is a barrister who represented Sierra (of water meters fame)… Not only that, he also represented Patricia Casey (the, ahem, very talented psychiatrist with ties to anti-choice groups) in her defamation case against the Irish Times for comments written under an article about her by Breda O’Brien. I would rather throw myself into the Liffey than vote for him, especially considering the company he keeps!
Most interesting fellow
Mick – Cavan/Monaghan next?
For symmetry’s sake Dublin Bay North should be next :-)
Ah c’mon. Let us have this.
For God and Ulster.
I’ll do Cyavan-Mawnaghan at the weekend if I have time, Stumpy.
The ‘constituency looks like’ bit is really funny. More!
Tone lowering? Terenure? How very dare you Mick!
Thanks Mick, I feel learned now, about the politics like. Lessons with humour are the besht.
Now, do ‘Dublin South central’ or I’ll send O’Snodaigh over with Garda uniforms in the boot and a few printer cartridges! You know how he likes them cartridges!
Dublin Central pleeeeeeeease
Dublin west would be fun. I wonder will mick agree with paddypower who say that its looking good for burton. And all the crap on here “I can’t wait until that (insert derogatory name calling here) gets booted out.
Btw the series is great lads. Keep up the good work
I like this.
Well I never, today I learned my voting area is called Dublin Bay South all of a sudden. Not happy with that, sounds far too northside.
Anyway, I’ll vote pretty much the same as i did last year, depending on what Indepenants are there.
Lucinda is hot.
You’ve been married to her for five years so just as well you don’t think she looks like a potato.
I’m not her husband.
There’s plenty more fish in the sea.
Constant Markievicz could look a bit more butch…
