I don't remember Heaney making any impact. Catholics will turn to a pro-life candidate with prospects over one that doesn't.
She finished on about 20000 votes in 2014. Not bad.

Catholics definitely will vote for no-hopers. As they think God will intervene and get their candidates elected. And if they fail, it's just because the Candidate wasn't holy enough.

Sure it's why we lost the referendum don't you know - because the no side wasn't religious enough! "God moves mountains" and all that... but only knowledge moves them to the right place, as the good doctor said!

She got 13.5K votes running under the NP (LOL), short about 30K votes but double what Peter O Loughlin got which isnt saying much.

The south voters gave 180,000 votes to HotWheels - who they knew was practically incapacitated. They are a really stupid bunch,

Garbarge the NP called itself a Party for years without having Papers Submitted.

Irish Freedom's Paperwork is in ages :sleepz:
The NP were just an unregistered political party. Haven't you heard of that term? No big deal. Now with their first round of elections, they are registered. It went from a tiny issue to the matter being closed.

You however were ranting, screaming, shouting, yelling, doin' somersaults, doin' backflips, twirling around with toilet paper, doing handstands that the NP weren't registered.

The NP got registered.

And you're NOT!

And you're the anti-EU party and these are Euro elections. And you failed to get registered.

I don't hold it against Irexit.

It's an honourable problem. But you collapsing in a heap with your hatchet - now that's funny.

If Catholics see a pro-lifer with prospects they'll switch to them. Catholics are savvier than the stereotype. They'll need to be courted though. Whether this lady-professor will do that is another question.

She hasn't much prospects though. The Catholics voted for Dana because she was well tipped to win a seat being Dana. But Dolores is a nobody. Sure she's got a good CV. But the EU elections are all about name recognition, which is why Ming won and why Peter Casey will win.

You're a Joke, a sad obsessed Joke- I didn't even read all that blarney.

IFP are standing a short while after commencing formation, with their Reg imminent.

Go back to Peader or be a Flip Flop :Middle Finger:

Not imminent enough to actually have the name/logo on the ballot though.

Lemme me tell you a joke. It's a real cracker. It gets funnier with every telling.

There's a charlatan that bored everyone to death for years on end with trivial dribble about whether his rival party was registered. Total obsession. They promptly get registered in good order.

It turns out his -- you'll laugh at this -- his own partei was never registered and are now outta time! Lol with tearsLol with tearsLol with tearsLol with tearsLol with tearsLol with tears:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Demented4 - you're the joke that just keeps on giving.:)

Yeah, she's got the wrong personality to make an impact. And that she's an indo will impose more ballast on her.

Casey is a good candidate. If the billboards hit the mark, the old H-bomb might experience a surge in a poor field. But it's difficult to see Dolores doing anything tbh.
