Sinn Fein candidate selections

Adrian Kavanagh – updated on 7th February 2011

I found it more difficult to access as much reliable candidate selection information from the Sinn Fein website as I was able to do from the Fine Gael/Labour websites, but this is list of my current knowledge of officially selected Sinn Fein candidates and it seems this could be the final list. This list includes 41 candidates, competing in 38 different constituencies – same number of candidates as in 2007 General Election and two fewer constituencies being contested.

    Gallagher is in Meath East and Cllr Tobin in Meath West btw. No candidate will be run in Kildare South.

    • D’oh!!! Corrected, thanks for that Republican Socialist. Will Kildare South (and maybe Limerick) be only constituency with no SF candidate. Kildare South, Limerick West and Cork North West were only constituencies with no SF candidate in 2007, but is already a SF candidate in the field in CNW this time around!

        I’ll ask again about Kildare South but that’s what I was told. I’ll ask in Limerick but it’ll be the same case as last time I think. It’s possible they might not run in Clare as well (local organisation problems and the two most likley candidates there have both said they will not run).
        O’Snodaigh will be the only candidate in Dublin South Central. along with Ellis in North West and MacLochlainn in Donegal NE. Martin Kenny has been selected in Roscommon-South Leitrim. I think there are plans afoot to run two in Mayo.

  2. Seamus Hazlett says:

    Paul Donnelly has been selected as Sinn Féin’s candidate in Dublin West.
