@Homemaker, You have a shockingly poor list to choose from. As much as I don't like or trust Lucinda Creighton, the Dáil is a better place with her in it.

We can't all win the election lottery like you Coles2, that young Timmins is a real go-getter

jaysus. At least he makes more of an effort in the Dáil than old Godfrey, but there's still a real opportunity for someone to unseat Timmins. I just have to rub a bit of muck around my ears, buy a sheep trailer, and I reckon I could be the new shepherd around here. I'd have to ruin my Sundays by hanging around outside the churches instead of posting my wisdom online which would be an unbearable loss for everyone here.

Will be voting Green, but I'd be shocked if they got anywhere near government (or even a seat in most constituencies - if they get 2 that'll be an okay day at the office).

Do you think Eamonn Ryan will get elected?

Would consider any party/ candidate but not Sinn Fein. Failure to condemn murder/criminality in the past the main reason.

Which (if any) parties are likely to benefit from the 1916 centenary? I can see all sorts of arguments for and against various parties being helped or hurt but would be interested in other opinions.

Regardless of the centenary the majority will stick with the status quo as long as they feel things are improving.

There is no way the 'status quo' will secure the votes of more than one third of the electorate.

Are they even running any candidates? I've seen a few posters up before but not recently.

I could see maybe Francis and Rick pulling in a few votes from rural constituencies hollowed out by emigration, but Andy and John would be less well known and they'd probably struggle to win over the younger urban demographic and the hardcore republican vote.

The quality of contribution to this forum has really never been quite as poor as it is now.

It's a poll thread; there's already a 46 page thread on the General Election.

And you've 150 posts since 23/01/16 - what does that say?

You'd swear there was a general election around the corner.

I agree. Please stop electioneering.
