Without being too cynical, who really cares? Being in the Dail means that they are jumped up councillors who abide by a strict whip system.
In any event, what is the difference between FF and FG (nationally or locally). ?
Regardless of who 'gets in', it is just going to be another elective dictatorship of a party elite. All of this is assuming that they can cobble together some sort of coalition.
Really, with respect to any of the candidates (bar Kenny, who is possibly the next Taoiseach), none of them is going to make a blind bit of difference to anyone or anything in this country.
Apart from the mess FF made in their last 10 years in government, which I didn't hear FG criticising at the time, nothing separates them other than civil war politics and history.
Like what have we to select from: two school teachers, an auctioneer, a barrister, and a professional politician? Who cares?
