    What does “TC” referr to after the candidates names? Can’t work it out at the minute.

  2. Pingback: Confirmed Independents Running in General Election

  3. Jimmy Kelly says:

    Would it be possible to include former parties the independents belonged to. Im sure some of these so called independents are still supporters of party politics and would be very willing to prop up their former associates.

  4. Jack Jameson says:

    The flip side is that the parties the candidates left to go Independent would often be the last ones on Earth they’d support.

    • Jimmy Kelly says:

      Not necessarily so. Independent FF. Jim McDaid ? Jackie Healy Rea ? Joe Behan ? Beverly Cooper Flynn ? I believe would be just a few examples.

  5. Steve Malone says:

    Can you supply E-Mails for canditates

  6. John F says:

    Are you missing Eamonn Blaney (spokesperson for New Vision) in Dublin North-East? If so the tally of 233 independents as reported by RTE would appear to be incorrect (or do you have someone else in the list who did not declare?)

  7. Ronan says:

    Thanks for this Adrian, it’s been extremely useful in the run up to the election.
