The Shinners did well in the bi-elections, came as a bit of a shock to PBP in Dublin MW that they may take Gino Kenny seat and Cork NC for Thomas Gould to possibly take Mick Barry's seat. Clearly the local councilors and TDs in these areas are grafters unlike the other areas. But SF will surely do better in the Dail elections than the council ones, "they haven't gone away you know" !!It seems that SF is doing very well in the Cork constituency and Dublin MidWest where Mark Ward is coming in at 24%! Eoin Ó Broin was the campaign manager for Dublin MidWest. Johnny Mython of SF in Wexford coming in at 9% seems to be flat and going nowhere.
