People Before Profit candidates for the 2019 Local Elections

Adrian Kavanagh, First posted 10th July 2013 (as a post for both Solidarity and People Before Profit candidates) – stand alone People Before Profit page created on 8th November – with updates as new candidate nominations announced. Any links in this post are to online announcements of candidate selections – there will be no specific links to candidate webpages.

The seventh of my series of rolling blog posts, in which I detail the latest information as to candidate selections relating to the different political parties and grouping and/or candidate declarations (as in the case of the non-party grouping).

The post will focus on the candidate selections for People Before Profit.

Green Party/Comhaontas Glas candidates for the 2019 Local Elections

Adrian Kavanagh, First posted 7th November 2018, with updates as new candidate nominations announced. Any links in this post are to online announcements of candidate selections – there will be no specific links to candidate web pages.

The sixth of my series of rolling blog posts, in which I detail the latest information as to candidate selections relating to the different political parties and grouping and/or candidate declarations (as in the case of the non-party grouping). The rule of thumb here is that I will add party candidates in most cases only after they have been officially selected to run for the party at a selection convention or by some other means of candidate selection. I try my best to find information about local election candidate selection conventions, but in some cases this information is hard to find and occasionally it can be some time after a convention takes place before I find this information and hence am in a position to update this page accordingly.

The post will focus on Green candidate selections ahead of the 2019 City and County Council elections.  Continue reading

New Irish (Non-Irish/UK nationals) candidates contesting the 2019 Local Elections

Adrian Kavanagh, 30th October 2018

This post will attempt to list all of the “New Irish”, or Non-Irish/UK national, candidates who have been officially selected to contest the local elections in May 2019, or else have declared their intentions to contest these elections as independent candidates. For the purposes of this post, the definition of “New Irish” will include people who were born outside Ireland and who were not Irish (or UK) citizens before moving to the Republic Ireland. This post will include candidates who subsequently gained Irish citizenship on moving to, or after moving to, the Republic of Ireland.

At present (as of 30th October 2018) I can account for four candidacies in this group, including three female candidates (75.0%) and one male (25.0%) candidates. One candidate is running for Labour, two candidates are running for the People Before Profit Alliance and One candidate is running for the Social Democrats. Continue reading

A Geography of Voting at the 2018 Presidential Election

Adrian Kavanagh, 30th October 2018

There is always a “geography” to electoral support and turnout patterns and this was very much the case with the 2018 Presidential Election. This contest saw a number of records being set in terms of voting patterns at a presidential election; the lowest ever voter turnout level (43.9%), the highest ever number of first preference votes won by a candidate (but not the highest ever vote share) and the lowest ever number of first preference votes (and lowest vote share) won by a candidate.  Continue reading

City and County Councillors who will be stepping down at (not contesting) the 2019 Local Elections

Adrian Kavanagh 18th October 2018

This post lists all of the City/County Councillors who will be retiring at the May 24th 2019 Local Elections – as opposed to the version of this post for 2014 elections, it will not list the names of Councillors who retired/stood down at an earlier date (and who have by this stage been replaced by a co-option from their party or group) as this information is covered in another, earlier, post. This list will only include the names of incumbents who contested Local Elections 2019 selection conventions for their political parties and failed to win nominations at these if these Councillors subsequently announce their retirements after such convention defeats.  Continue reading
